Exodus 4:2  And the LORD said unto him, What is that in thine hand? And he said, A rod.

When we think of Moses, we think of how he miraculously led God’s people out of captivity under the Egyptians.  We also think of the amazing miracles the Lord performed using Moses.  Our verse reminds us of the instrument Moses used in most every one of these miracles.  When the Lord first called Moses and sent him on his life mission, Moses had many excuses of why he was not capable of being used of the Lord to perform such impossible things.  But the Lord supplied everything he needed to sufficiently perform the will of God.  Our verse reveals the most used physical thing in Moses’ life.  A rod.  This was simply a limb cut from a tree.  A stick.  A shepherd’s staff.  As Moses gave the Lord excuses, the Lord asked him what that was in his hand.  Moses said; it is a rod.  The Lord let him know that that rod would be used to perform many amazing things in the upcoming years.  Ex. 4:17  And thou shalt take this rod in thine hand, wherewith thou shalt do signs.  Let’s look at a few.    Ex. 4:3-4  And he said, Cast it on the ground. And he cast it on the ground, and it became a serpent; and Moses fled from before it. And the LORD said unto Moses, Put forth thine hand, and take it by the tail. And he put forth his hand, and caught it, and it became a rod in his hand.  Ex. 7:17  Thus saith the LORD, In this thou shalt know that I am the LORD: behold, I will smite with the rod that is in mine hand upon the waters which are in the river, and they shall be turned to blood.  Ex. 14:16  But lift thou up thy rod, and stretch out thine hand over the sea, and divide it: and the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea.  And there are many more instances where the Lord chose to use that simple rod to perform great and mighty miracles by the hands of Moses.  Dear friend, the point of today’s study is that we must not underestimate what the Lord is using in our lives.  We are guilty of thinking the Lord cannot and does not use us.  The fact is that we refuse to allow the Lord to use us.  If we wish to be used of the Lord then He will use us.  And most likely the area and the things he will use in our life will not be what we expected.  We must learn to just let God.  Let Him choose what part of our life He uses.  Stop making excuses.  If God used a simple rod in Moses’ life, then He can use the simple things of our daily life.  Determine to just let God today.  Ask Him to use whatever in your life that pleases Him.  You will be amazed.  Amen.

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God
