Have you ever wondered, "How is God going to use me? Do I really have a purpose?”
Well, just like Moses in Exodus, God wants to use us for His glory!!
My book club, Hope-in-Christ, is currently reading a phenomenal book, “I Reign: A Survivor's Guide to Thrive” by Minister Annie Bell. In her book, she provides practical application for surviving childhood abuse. One of the scriptures that she quotes is Exodus 4:1-2.
After reading this section of her book, God has continued to cause the words, “What's in your hand?” to reverberate in my mind !
I have read the book of Exodus many times, but never has those words stood out to me until now.
You see, God is currently birthing His ministry through me. For many years, I walked in fear and self-doubt. I listened to the voice of the enemy telling me that I wasn't good enough. But for the past few months God has begun to speak to me, “I have called you to do my will! I have loved you with an everlasting love. All that is needed is already in you! I have already equipped you to walk out my purpose for your life!”
He then begin to show me the ministries and what is already in my hand in order to perform those duties.
For example, he led me to start writing devotionals, and proofreading and editing, all of which fall under my training from years of teaching English Language Arts.
I never would have thought that God would have chosen me for those tasks, but He did and and they are things that I absolutely LOVE!!
So the next time you are weary and questioning if you are really called and equipped to walk out God's purpose, remember how he used Moses.
Moses, like us, made many excuses, but God used him mightily! He wants to do the same with us!
You are already equipped! What's in your hand?
