What Do You Have In Your Hands?

What do you have in your hands?

If you are a person of Faith, you must have read this question a couple of times from the scriptures “What do you have in your hands?”

Of the many stories there are, the one that readily comes to mind is the one of God leading his people out of the land of Egypt and when they got to a point they couldn’t move forward because of the red sea in front of them and they couldn’t go back because their enemies chased after them.

God then asked the leader of his people, Moses, what he had in his hand. Moses replied, a rod. He was then asked to stretch the rod over the water and the water parted ways and God’s people walked in the middle of the water as dry ground.

Ain’t that profound? Considering what God can do with what we have in our hands?

So, I ask you today, “what do you have in your hands?”

One beautiful thing I have learnt lately about God is his fairness! He is fair to everyone.

No, He is not partial so He doesn’t give someone ‘more’, as it were, than the other. He gives you exactly what you need to excel.

“His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence” 


What do you have in your hand?


Our attitude towards work.

Because of the nature of work I do as a Human Resource personnel, I get to relate with a couple of vendors and I see how they take their work and sometimes, it breaks my heart. To be fair, some of them don’t take their work seriously. You keep pacing them to get a job done. You don’t want to have this kind attitude to work, it doesn’t paint a good picture of you.

Again, what do you have in your hands?

The work that you do at the moment, how do you do it? If you are a student, how do you handle your academics? That’s currently what you have in your hand.

If you currently work in a place that you don’t like or you do the work that you don’t currently love, as long as that is what you are doing at the moment, you have got to do it and do it well, it is.

“Whatever turns up, grab it and do it. And heartily! This is your last and only chance at it. For there’s neither work to do nor thought to think in the company of the dead, where you’re most certainly headed” 


The turning point.

If you are hoping for a better work, do well at the one you currently have.

If you want to handle greater finances, how well are you handling the little that is currently in your hand?

“Unless you are faithful in small matters, you won’t be faithful in large ones. If you cheat even a little, you won’t be honest with greater responsibilities”


Like Emmanuel Faith mentioned during his Personal Branding session earlier this week from Timi Dakolo’s latest song, “Everything you put your hands go work, and that’s if you put your hand”.

What do you have in your hands again? Use it.
