God chooses Moses to help him
(from Exodus chapter 4 verses 1 to 17)





God chose Moses to help him save the Israelites.

God gave Moses three signs to show he was with him.

God said they would show the Egyptians

that God was with Moses and the Israelites.


First he turned Moses’ staff into a snake.

He told Moses to pick the snake up by the tail.

Moses did what God said

and the snake turned into a staff again.


Then God told Moses to put his hand inside his coat.

Moses did what God said.

His hand withered.  He put inside his coat again.

God made his hand better again.


For the third sign, God told Moses to take

some water from the river and pour it on the ground.

The water turned into blood.


These were the three signs God gave to Moses

to show that he was with him.


But Moses said he was not good at talking.

God said. ‘I gave you your mouth.

I will tell you what to say.’

But Moses said, ‘Please send someone else.’


God was cross with Moses, but he said,

‘All right.  Your brother Aaron can speak for you.

Tell him what to say.  I will help you both.

I will tell you what to do.

But you must take the staff.’
