What’s in your hand?

Willow Creek | April 12, 2024

Have you ever wanted to do something significant but thought, I don’t have enough? It would help if you had more time, the skills required, or the means to go and do that great thing you dream of. 

That’s the same feeling Moses experiences in Exodus. God tasks Moses with leading his people out of Egypt, and Moses questions whether he has the right resources and skills to do so: “What if they do not believe me or listen to me..?” Then God asks Moses: “What is in your hand?” (Exodus 4:2).

Moses held a simple wooden staff in his hand. It wasn’t a grand or flashy tool; it was just used for his everyday tasks. But in God’s hands, Moses’ staff performed miracles, parting the Red Sea and leading the Israelites to freedom.

Just like Moses’ staff, through God, your resources, whether big or small, can be the catalyst for miraculous change around the world. Taking part in Celebration of Hope isn’t about the size of your contribution but about recognizing the incredible potential of the resources God has already given to you.
