"So, Olivia in this chapter," Mama began, "God spoke to Moses, and this time He told Moses that he would need to show the Israelites some signs, so they would know that it was truly God speaking to him."


"Signs?" asked Olivia, her eyes wide.


"Yes, signs," Papa said. "God told Moses to take his staff, the same one he used to care for his sheep, and perform some amazing miracles."


"What kind of miracles?" asked Olivia, excitedly.


"Well," Mama said, "God told Moses that when he threw his staff down, it would turn into a snake. And then, when he picked it up, it would turn back into a staff. And when Moses put his hand into his cloak and then took it out, his hand would be covered in leprosy, white as snow. But when he put his hand back in and took it out again, it would be healed."


"Whoa," Olivia said, impressed. "That's amazing!"


"Yes, it is," Papa said. "And these signs would show the everyone that Moses was truly speaking on behalf of God, and that God was with him every step of the way."


"And then what happened?" Olivia asked.


Papa continued, "Aaron gathered all the elders of the Israelites together. Moses wanted to show them the power of God and let them know that they had been chosen to lead the people out of slavery and into freedom. And when the Israelites saw the amazing things that Moses was able to do, they believed in God's power."


Lesson: God has a plan for each and every one of us, and it's important to trust Him and His plan for our lives. Even when things are uncertain and we're afraid, we can have faith that God knows what's best for us and will guide us on the right path. Just like Moses and Aaron, we can trust that God will provide us with the signs and resources we need to fulfill our purpose and live out our destiny. So, let's have faith, listen to God, and trust in His plan for us.
