In our last edition, entitled "UNLOCKING YOUR PURPOSE" we shared that there are five Kingdom Keys to unlock closed doors (click here to read more).
In today's newsletter, entitiled "A NEW PARADIGM" we learn when Moses was called by God from his forty years in the desert to lead the people out of Egypt, God first changed his paradigm about his shepherd’s staff which represented his work life as a shepherd. God told him He was going to perform miracles through his staff (Exod. 4:17).
A shepherd was considered a very lowly profession by the Egyptians. Moses had a time of breaking in the desert which separated him from all that he learned in Egypt. Many times, the way God calls us into His purpose in our work life is through a hardship of some kind.
God will often “break” our staff, or our vocation, in order to reshape and re-commission us. The purpose of the breaking is not to destroy us, but to bring us to a place of willingness to lay down our vocations so that God can use them for His purposes. The breaking prepares our heart for the new calling. God required Moses to lay down his staff in order for him to see it as something that had power. He had not viewed his work life as a shepherd as having any power.
God was instructing Moses to lay down that which represented his life and calling, so that He could transform it and raise it up for His purposes. Once Moses laid his staff down and then took it back up, a significant change took place. It was no longer his shepherd’s staff; it was the “staff of God”.
God’s staff has power. After Moses’ staff became God’s, it was used as the instrument of deliverance and transformation for the people of God. It delivered people out of the slavery of Egypt through one of the most dramatic miracles of all time — the parting of the Red Sea (see Ex. 14:16). Moses’ staff transformed a people from slavery to freedom and was used to demonstrate his God-given authority.
How about you? Are you willing for God to use your “staff” to bring a people out of bondage?
