The LORD answered, ” What’s that in your hand?” ” A walking stick,” Moses replied Exodus 4:2
Today I wanted to revamp my business, and it’s business plan. So like I always do I went to do some research and find the best practices for what I wanted to do. I came across some individuals doing what I want to do which I think it is ministry consulting. I started to look at some documents for strategic planning, and I simply began to get overwhelmed.
I don’t know where to start because I want to do things so perfectly. I was just staring blankly at my screen with some document opened. To my surprise, the paper was about strategic planning. It was telling me that before any strategic plan can begin you need to pray and ask for His God’s leading. This is something simple, yet it’s profound. I cut loose my planning and decide to plan to pray.
As I continued with my morning, I went out for a run, and something else clicked. Your work is not outside of you, but it is inside of you. You need to work on yourself, your prayer life, you relationships, your health. The greatest asset I have to drive my success is what I already have not what I do not have. The message rang in my ear what is in your hand?
Sometimes in search for an answer somewhere else, we can neglect that answers which have already been given to us. I believe that as you take the time to develop yourself, the clarity you develop will be worth it. Take some time out to look at what is in your hands and use it.
