So the LORD said to him, “What is that in your hand?” He said, “A rod.” And He said, “Cast it on the ground.” So he cast it on the ground, and it became a serpent; and Moses fled from it. Then the LORD said to Moses, “Reach out your hand and take it by the tail” (and he reached out his hand and caught it, and it became a rod in his hand),“that they may believe that the LORD God of their fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has appeared to you.” Exodus 4:2-5
God takes the skills we have and transforms them into abilities we would otherwise not have. In order for this to happen, we must first lay them down at his feet and trust Him with them.
To lay down my skills at His feet… how much will be accomplished then!!
Father God, I lay my life before you and all the gifts, talents, and skills I have Lord. Equip me with YOUR abilities and in YOUR wisdom. Keep me on Your path and lead me according to Your ways. Be with me. Lord, bless me! In Jesus’ name. Amen.
“So he [David] fed them according to the integrity of his heart; and guided them by the skilfulness of his hands” Psalm 78:72
