S. O. A. P.
Here’s your 90 second AM devotional!
The Lord answered Moses, “Go out in front of the people. Take with you some of the elders of Israel and take in your hand the staff with which you struck the Nile, and go.”
Once again, the people of Israel were complaining. They were thirsty and wanted to go back to Egypt. Moses asked God what to do and the Lord said, “Take your staff in your hand and strike the rock at Horeb and water will come out.” He did and the people’s thirst was quenched.
Moses and the people of Israel had great COMFORT when his staff was in his hand. When God first called Moses to lead the people out of Egypt, Moses asked God, “What if they won’t listen?” God said, “Throw the staff in your hand down.” Moses did and it turned into a snake! He picked it up by the tail and it turned back into a staff! (Ex. 4:1–5). Then Moses, at one point of the “EXODUS ORDEAL,” struck the Nile River with his staff and it turned to blood! (Ex. 7:20). When they approached the Red Sea, God said, “Raise your staff and stretch out your hand over the sea.” And when Moses obeyed, the Red Sea split open (Ex. 14:16). Indeed, when the people were screaming to Moses for water he must’ve been troubled as he approached the Lord. God said, “Take your staff in your hand.” He was really saying, “I’m with you Moses … Remember What’s In Your Hand!” Surely, my friend, if God has helped you before, He will help you NOW! “Remember What’s In Your Hand.”
This AM I am once again turning my back on fear, because I know, that I know, that I know … You are with me! Amen
