What Matters is Who God Is
by Max Lucado
When God announced Moses was to deliver the Israelites, Moses wasn’t convinced! God demonstrated that who Moses was didn’t matter. What mattered was who God was.
“Moses,” spoke the voice from the bush, “throw down your staff” (Exodus 4:3).
God you may not know…well, you don’t go around throwing down your staff. You never know when. . .
“Throw it down.”
When the rod became a snake, Moses began to run.
“Moses! Pick it up by the tail.”
God, out here, well, you don’t pick up snakes too often and never by the tail.
As Moses touched the squirmy scales, it hardened. Moses lifted up the rod—the same rod he would lift up to divide the water and guide two million people through the desert. If God can do something with stubborn hearts and a stiff-necked people. . .he can do something with the common!
