Most of us have seen the commercial advertising a credit card that ends with, “so what’s in your wallet?” There are many card options available and they want viewers to think about which one they are carrying.
Have you ever given thought to what’s in your hand? What is it that you do with your hands? Perhaps you use a drill, saw or hammer to build things. Maybe you use your hands on a computer keyboard to design, write or keep financial records. Some will use pots, pans and kitchen utensils in their hands to cook or bake. I know of others who can produce beautiful music with instruments placed in their hands. And still others who can offer healing and relief from pain using medical instruments in their hands. So, what’s in your hand?
God has placed within each of us gifts, skills and talents that he intends us to use for His glory. Sadly, many have only used those gifts, skills and talents for personal gain. Imagine what could happen if we were willing to release and give to the Lord what we hold in our hands.
Moses had a rod that he used for guiding, protecting and leaning on when tending sheep and walking the hillsides. However, when that rod was released and given to God, it was used to part the sea, bring water from a rock and determine the winner in a mighty battle. When the rod of Moses became God’s (Exodus 4:20), Moses was able to do extraordinary things with an ordinary stick.
What ordinary thing do you hold in your hand? If we are willing, God will take whatever we hold in our hands and use it in extraordinary ways for His Kingdom’s advancement. There are missions opportunities in Kentucky, North America and around the world that need you to use what’s in your hands. There are construction, medical, farming, and technical needs that make great platforms for sharing the gospel with those who don’t yet know Christ. Being on mission simply means using what’s in your hands and obediently answering His call. So, what’s in your hands?
