The LORD asked him, ‘What do you have there in your hand?'”
“‘A shepherd’s staff,’ Moses replied.”
“Throw it on the ground,’ the LORD told him. So Moses threw it down, and it became a snake! Moses was terrified, so he turned and ran away.”
“Then the LORD told him, ‘Take hold of its tail.’ So Moses reached out and grabbed it, and it became a shepherd’s staff again.”
“‘Perform this sign, and they will believe you,’ the LORD told him. ‘Then they will realize that the LORD, the God of their ancestors…really has appeared to you.'” Exodus 3, NLT
God takes what Moses has carried over the years to tend sheep, a very important tool of his trade, as well as a security, something to lean on, for him. God has asked him to throw it down!
What is God’s Story saying to us? Right now? Is there something He is asking us to “throw down” so that God may transform it for HIS purpose? For HIS glory? And could it be used for our own transformation to be what He wants us to be? Oooh, this is something to meditate on today!
