One of the problems we’ve found time and time again is that most think it was a fluke to have their prayer answered. Generally we don’t have confidence in our prayers and even if they are answered we may not possess the confidence to share with others what was done in our lives.
“Then the Lord asked him, “What is that in your hand?” “A shepherd’s staff,” Moses replied.”
Moses had his staff. In fact when Moses was selected by God, He felt like the most unqualified. God would occasionally ask Moses to use his staff to perform mighty acts. When Moses faced extreme trouble God asked him what is it you have in your hand. Moses replied my staff. You see, what you have is all you need for God to use you. When you’ve experienced Him have confidence in what you have because if he can use Moses’ staff, he can certainly use the many possessions, skills and experiences that you have.
Lord, help me build the confidence in what I have, what I possess and who I am to help others be the best they can be, in Jesus’ name.
(What action based on your prayer can you take?)
I look for the simplest ways to use my gifts, skills, and experiences to help at least one other person become a better version of themselves.
