Scripture: Exodus 4:1-5
by Pastor Brian Clater
This narrative focuses on the call of Moses to be the delivered of the people of Israel from the bondage of slavery. At the time of our text, Moses is a fugitive from Egypt living in the desert (see Exodus 2:11-15). He is a sheep-herder living with Jethro, his father-in-law (Exodus 3:1).
Main Point of the Message:
Remember the Lord’s promises to you; the Lord will be faithful to you. (See Hebrews 13:5).
The Bible says that Moses was tending his father-in-law’s sheep when the Lord appeared to him out of a burning bush (Exodus 3:4-7). Moses gives every excuse that he could think of to get out of the assignment that God had assigned him to do. (Exodus 3:11-12; Exodus 3:13-14; Exodus 4:1-9).
But then the Lord interrupts Moses and asks him a question: “Moses, what is in your hand?”
What was in Moses’ hand? How might the Lord use what we have in order to advance the kingdom of God?
