#14: The Thing In Your Hand Is Powerful
We tend to underestimate the power of the simple that has been going on around us.
This is true throughout history. Moses thought he had little to offer to the cause of God. Just to clarify this arrangement God decided to use the most common item imaginable in Moses’ life—the thing he held in his hand—his old, worn-out shepherd’s staff. This had been dead for decades. It had been cut from the limb of an almond tree. God told him to toss it to the ground. In obedience he did. It immediately became a powerful viper that frightened him. Then God told him to pick it up. As he touched it by the tail it was transformed back into a staff. From that point forward Moses’ staff was present in all of his leadership actions. It was a reminder that God’s presence was resting upon him.
He has in mind to pour out his Spirit upon your life. He will do it through common things you already have present. Look at what is in your hand. That is what God will likely anoint.
