Exodus 4:2 Then the LORD said to [Moses], “What is that in your hand?” “A staff,” he replied.
God greatest miracles often starts with what we have right now. Where we are right now.
Moses was asked by God to go to Pharoah and to bring the people out of Egypt and to the promised land. But Moses chickened out. He was afraid. He believed he was a nobody and no one would listen to him. Don’t we feel like Moses too when God gives us great tasks to accomplish? Do we give excuses why we can’t do it just like Moses?
Thankfully, God showed Moses that with Him, anything small or insignificant in man’s eyes can become powerful. God asked him what was that in his hand? It was a shepherd’s staff for rounding up sheep. Would Moses use that to bash Pharoah on the head? Nope. Instead, God turned the staff into a snake!
You can bet Moses was shocked out his skin. God wanted to show Moses that anything we have, if handed to God can be turned into great miracles. This same God is telling you to not feel inadequate. He will prepare you to do great things. Just give him your little things.
Remember the boy with the five loaves and two fishes? He gave it to Jesus and He fed at least five thousand people. Amazing! What would happen if the little boy thought his food wasn’t enough and Jesus could not do anything?
God is asking you today, “What is that in your hand?”. Trust that He will use you in all your inadequacies to prove that everything was done through God’s help.
