Then Moses answered and said, “But suppose they will not believe me or listen to my voice; suppose they say, ‘The Lord has not appeared to you.’” So the Lord said to him, “What is that in your hand?” He said, “A rod.”

Exodus 4:1-2 NKJV

After months of intimidation and oppression, all David needed to defeat the well-equipped, seasoned warrior, and physically formidable Goliath and end the incessant harassment of the Philistines was not an untested, untried and unproven sophisticated, well-tempered armor of a warrior king made from the most superior metal, but the common every day catapult of a shepherd boy, used in killing lizards, hunting birds, and other small animals for food. Something within his reach, of which he had become dexterous at using. 

If God is going to bless you, He will use the work of your hands. When God is going to use you, He will use that thing you’re good at, used to, natural to you, commonplace with you, ordinary to others and inconsequential in your own eyes. 

In the case of Moses it took God to call his attention to it. I pray God opens your eyes to see that thing within you and that your perspective will change and its worth and value in your sight will increase in Jesus name.

No matter how hard, difficult or challenging your assignment, dream and purpose may appear viz a vis your resources, skill, talent, ability, skill or exposure, what you have in your hand is sufficient enough to get the job done when the Spirit of God breathes on it. Quit belittling yourself, stop commonizing your skill, cease despising what you’re proficient at, what comes naturally to you, what you find fun doing every day, that’s what God’s going to use to impact your world and glorify Himself through you. It is with that that you will write your name upon the sand of time.
