Recently my brother brought to me a dead stick of wood. Actually, it is a beautiful smoothed-out and polished six-foot long walking stick. He drilled a hole in the top of the stick pushed a piece of leather through it, and tied to it a small cross and an arrowhead. Both of those things belonged to my father. My father, who loved the outdoors, believed that you should never walk in the woods without a good stick. It made me think about the staff that Moses had in his hand. When God first called Moses to lead the Hebrew slaves to freedom, he was reluctant, he was afraid, and he was unsure he could do it. But God took what Moses had in his hand, a dead stick of wood, and when Moses obediently raised that stick, miracles of God occurred. If God can take a dead stick of wood and send His power through it to accomplish His purposes, think of what He can do with what you have in your hands, if you will be faithful and obedient to Him. Offer what you have in your hands to God, and you just might get to participate with God in a beautiful miracle today.
