MOSES AND THE BURNING BUSH

Scripture Reading: Exodus 3:1-10
 
Have you ever questioned something God has said to you or asked you to do? I guess most of us have, and if so, we are walking in the shoes of many great spiritual men and women. Many have struggled with knowing and doing God’s will, and Moses was one of them.
 
The account of Moses, from the moment he was born and placed in the bullrushes to the end of his life, is well known. The Bible shares many impossible moments in his life that proved he was God’s man for the hour in which he lived. Exodus 3 shares a life-changing meeting with God, a holy ground experience that began with God speaking to him through a burning bush. Moses had been running from God for years, and God needed to get his attention. And the only way that could happen was to use the experience of the burning bush. Moses certainly saw, heard and became aware that he was on holy ground. It was an experience that shaped his future as he became the leader of God’s people, and the one to bring them out of bondage in Egypt.
 
The simple question I want to ask you today is this: What is it going to take for God to get your attention? Maybe you have been running away from Him, or you are seeking His direction for your life, or help with making some great decision. God wants to speak to you, but not necessarily in your way or your timing. God has the perfect way and the perfect time to reveal His will to you. What you need to do is to become available to Him for Him to be able to speak to you.
 
Maybe the circumstances you are facing at the moment are ways that God is trying to get your attention; no experience in life is wasted. Through what is happening to you, God is trying to reveal His plan. Stop, look, and listen — God is speaking, You are standing on holy ground, and God is about to reveal Himself to you.
