God was now ready to deploy him. • For Joseph it was 30 years. • For David it was also 30 years. • Again if Moses died at 80, we would have made great speeches at his burial: His education, career, family, and his powerful walk with God!

  24. 24. The Call of God onYour Life at thisTime For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. (Romans 8:19-21)
  25. 25. The Rod of Moses vs The Rod of God The Rod of GodWhat was Moses’ rod? His shepherd’s stick to defend and shepherd his sheep. The tool of your trade whose use you have mastered.You are now highly skilled in its use. For David it was the sling, and then the harp.

Release it and surrender it to Him.Then He will begin to use it to perform wonders. • Un-surrendered, it is a serpent that could kill, both you and other people. • Surrendered, it now becomes God’s rod in your hand. It will perform wonders!
