What’s In Your Hand?

During Moses’ discourse with God on the backside of the desert in Exodus 4:2-3, the Lord asked him a decisive question that proved pivotal — “What’s in your hand?”

What Moses thought was an ordinary staff in his hand would become a potent weapon that God used over time to prove His power.

Unpack your bag

When God formed you, He packed your ‘bag‘ with the tools you need to fulfil purpose on earth. You simply have to unpack your bag to discover all you need to live the God-intended life.

That’s done through a lifelong commitment to prayer, learning, service and doing.

It’s been said that the ‘richest‘ place in the world is the graveyard. Too many untapped potentials, unrealised dreams and wasted gifts are buried in the grave.

Don't be a stats. Don't die with regrets at the end of your life. Don't live only to die 'full' — with unfulfilled potentials and purpose taken to the grave. Click To Tweet

Unpack your bag; God won’t have it any other way.

Unleash your potential

The world has a clear need of the solution God has invested in you. There is a specific problem on earth you are well-placed to solve. Are you aware of that?

Your life isn’t an accident. You are here for such a time as this — yes, even in this pandemic season.

Like Moses, you have a ‘Pharaoh’ to confront and many whose destinies are tied to yours to release into their freedom. Souls are waiting for the impact of your purpose.

Stop running from the consecration that your calling demands. Lay it all on the altar for God and unleash your potential for His glory and our good.

What’s in your hand?

So I ask you, what’s in your hand? For Moses, it was the rod. What’s in your own hand?

What’s that passion, yearning, desire, skill, burden, experience or people that God has strategically placed in your heart, hand and life? Don’t waste them. You have them for a reason — to fulfil your purpose for God’s glory.

Look again at what God has invested in you and resolve to live to die without regret.
