Inspiring a Prophetic Community….Action

Martin Luter King Jr said “When evil men plot, good men must plan. When evil men burn and bomb, good men must build and bind. When evil men shout ugly words of hatred, good men must commit themselves to the glories of love. Where evil men would seek to perpetuate an unjust status quo, good men must seek to bring into being a real order of justice”. He really lived this out in his life, he took action when he saw injustice and look what happened literally off his back? 

Moses in Exodus 3 and 4 has intrigued me for sometime now. You know I wonder what it really must have been to see a bush burning and yet not really burning….Am I going insane? Must have been high on his list of thoughts. This guy who is a fugitive because he killed a man is called to go back to the Pharaoh. This guy has massive credibility issues, its not like he is this all perfect man of God, he is a ragmuffin like me and you. You know I think Moses gets a really bad wrap at times for the question in verse  “Who am I, that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?” To be fair on the guy he has a point, he isn’t exactly going to get the best reaction when he asks Pharaoh do you mind letting go of well roughly about 1 million people because well God told me to tell you and of yeah can we just forget that you want to to kill me cause I killed a man. I love what God tells his to use to complete this task when he asks him the question “What is that in your hand?”A staff.” This staff that became the most famous stick in the bible, that parted oceans, became a snake, and did many other things. 

God asks us the same question as Prophetic Communities what is in your hand? Is it your money? Is it your church building? Is it your homes? Is it your car?

You know God did some mighty things with that stick imagine what he can do with a Blackberry or an I Phone. 

What is in your hand? And what will God with it?
