What’s in your Hand? by Joyce Meyer - July 27, 2014
And the Lord said to him, What is that in your hand? And he said, a rod. —Exodus 4:2
In Exodus, God appeared to Moses to tell him to lead the Israelites out of Egypt, but Moses didn’t believe he could do all God was asking him to do. God responded to Moses’ excuses by asking him, “What is that in your hand?”
God is essentially saying, “Stop telling Me what you don’t have
and can’t do, and tell Me what you do have—what is in your
hand?” Then God takes what Moses has—a rod (stick)—and fills it with His power.
God can use anything we are willing to offer Him. If He can use a
stick, surely He can use you and me! Don’t wait until you can
figure out how to do it all on your own—let God infuse His power
into you now and do whatever He asks of you through His
Power Thought: When I give God what I do have, He will do great
things through me.
