10 As Pharaoh drew near, the Israelites looked back, and there were the Egyptians advancing on them. In great fear the Israelites cried out to the Lord. 11 They said to Moses, “Was it because there were no graves in Egypt that you have taken us away to die in the wilderness? What have you done to us, bringing us out of Egypt? 12 Is this not the very thing we told you in Egypt, ‘Let us alone and let us serve the Egyptians’? For it would have been better for us to serve the Egyptians than to die in the wilderness.” 13 But Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid, stand firm, and see the deliverance that the Lord will accomplish for you today; for the Egyptians whom you see today you shall never see again. 14 The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to keep still.”
15 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Why do you cry out to me? Tell the Israelites to go forward. 16 But you lift up your staff, and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it, that the Israelites may go into the sea on dry ground.
When looking at your life, many times you don’t feel adequate. We examine and measure ourselves by looking at others and sometimes feel like we don’t have what it takes. Some of us feel like we’re not anointed enough, many people don’t know out names, we may not have enough education and God is simply saying, Use What you Got!
Moses felt inadequate: didn’t think he was important, had a stuttering problem and couldn’t speak well and honestly, didn’t know what to say. God eliminated all of his excuses and proved that what he needed was in his hand. The rod was only a piece of wood, however, when in the hands of God in gained the power to be used for transformation.
Know this: What is nothing to us is something to God - Availability is the key – Following God’s Instructions is Essential!!
Stop comparing yourself to someone else or their journey. God handcrafted you just the way that He wanted you to be. The greatest thing you could be is YOU!! You are valuable and everything that you need God has already placed inside of you. Stop trying to grab other peoples tools and USE WHAT YOU GOT!!!!
