What’s in Your Hand?

Have you ever felt God prompt you to speak to someone about Jesus but you shied away from the task? Have you felt inadequate or afraid? Have all the scenarios run through your mind of how they may react? You are in good company.

Moses, a great servant of God, felt these same feelings. In Exodus 4:1, Moses asks God, “What if they do not believe me or listen to me and say, ‘The LORD did not appear to you’?” God’s reply was awesome. He asked Moses what he had in his hand. It was just an ordinary stick, nothing supernatural. God took something Moses already possessed and used it to show His power. With the staff, Moses later strikes a rock and water rushes out. With the staff, Moses sees God part the sea. God put something in Moses’ hand that gave him confidence to act. It was obvious that God was real when people looked at Moses.

What is your staff? What is the miracle God has done in your life that can give you boldness to act when He asks you to? What is the ordinary thing in you that God has turned into something extraordinary? Don’t be afraid. When you speak to someone about Jesus, God’s power in your life will speak for you.
