What do you have in your hand?

By Dave Henning / April 15, 2012

In When Life’s Not Working, Bob Merritt reflects on our natural human tendency, when facing difficult situations, to focus on what we don’t have rather than on what we do have.  He asks us the same question God asked Moses when Moses was looking for authority to back up his demands to Pharaoh (Exodus 4:2): “What do you have in your hand?”

Pastor Merritt goes on to explain: “God has put something in your hand that he wants you to use to accomplish something great, but he can’t do it if you’re sitting in the bleachers watching the game.”

You calling from God continues even though a specific ministry position has ended.  As John Ortberg would say, you just need to get out of the boat with trusting faith.
