Moses' Staff

Moses took My staff.
He struck the rock.
Water flowed so
My people could live.

He held My staff aloft
giving victory to My people.
Moses had My staff
sign of My power.

Icon for all to see
in midst of wilderness.

Yet Moses thought
it was his staff.
As he struck the rock
a second time.

Using My gift for
his own purposes.
Forgetting it was
My staff.

What are the gifts
I give you?
Will you remember
who's gift they are?

Will you use them
to serve Me?
(Exodus 17: 1-13, Numbers 20: 2-13)

Do you understand you are here for a purpose?
Do you understand who's purpose it is?
What are your gifts?
How do you use them?
All questions I find hard.
