Fresh Hope – Day 229

One day, I was looking for my hairbrush. I was so frustrated. Where was it? I looked all over, then I found it…in my hand!

Oh dear. Sometimes, we really can’t see what’s right in front of us.

In Exodus chapter 4, Moses was concerned about the future. How was he going to lead the people?

God said, “What’s in your hand, Moses?”

Too often, we worry about what’s to come and we concern ourselves with that. God doesn’t want us to be worried about that.

What do you have right now?

A farmer may be concerned about his harvest. Is it going to be big this year?

Is it going to be enough for him and his family to survive?

The answer is in his hand. How much seed he sows now.  

Don’t worry about your bills or your future or your blessings to come.

The answer is what you do with what’s in your hand now. The little bit you have will multiply when you sow it.

God wants to shift your anxiety away from the future and get you to see what you have access to right now.

That’s what God did with Moses; he averted his focus off the anxiety of what the future may hold and told him to look at what was in his hand at that moment.

Moses had a simple staff, but he used it for mighty miracles.

Thank God for what you have right now. It may seem small and insignificant, but when you sow what little seed you have today, that’s what will determine your future harvest.
