I’m Not Good Enough

Then the Lord said to him, “What is that in your hand?” “A staff,” he replied. The Lord said, “Throw it on the ground.” Moses threw it on the ground and it became a snake, and he ran from it.”

Exodus 4:2-3 NIV


God used what Moses already had in his hand. He didn’t ask him to go look for a stick. He used something Moses would always have in hand. Your staff was like your identity, your signature ( remember the story of Judah and Tamar)

God asked Moses to throw it on the ground. Let it go. You have to let go of what you have so God can turn it into something big.

Moses ran away from his staff turned snake. His first reaction was ‘this is too much for me. I’m not enough.’ God used Moses mightily despite his insecurities and his feelings of inadequacy. He used Moses to rescue a whole nation of people which included about 600,000 men and even more women and children from a tyrannical king (Pharaoh). God can use you too even when you think ‘I’m not good enough or qualified enough’.


Prison to Palace

From prison to palace. From home grown to world fame. It took 13 yrs from when Joseph had his dream aged 17yrs to its fruition aged 30yrs. It took another 7 yrs or more for it to actually come true. But come true it did. God’s word comes true. ‘And it came to pass…’

“And all the world came to Egypt to buy grain from Joseph, because the famine was severe everywhere.”

Genesis 41:57 NIV
