    I read this many, many times, but I really SAW a different meaning to the ROD TURNING INTO A SNAKE. What do we do when we face our fears? We do just what Moses did-WE RUN! I CAN IMAGINE GOD TELLING MOSES TO FACE HIS GIANT/FEAR. HE EVIDENTLY CALLED HIM BACK AND TOLD HIM TO PICK UP HIS FEAR AND FACE IT, BECAUSE I AM GOING TO CHANGE THAT FEAR INTO A SITUATION YOU CAN HANDLE AS LONG AS YOU TRUST ME!!!
