What’s in Your Hand?

Posted on 30 Jan 2019

Scripture: Exodus 4:1-5

by Pastor Brian Clater

Introduction:

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).

Biblical Context:

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?”

Key Questions:

What was in Moses’ hand? How might the Lord use what we have in order to advance the kingdom of God?
