Your Burning Bush!

One day, Moses was taking care of the sheep and goats of his father-in-law Jethro, the priest of Midian, and Moses decided to lead them across the desert to Sinai, the holy mountain.  There an angel of the LORD appeared to him from a burning bush. Moses saw that the bush was on fire, but it was not burning up.  "This is strange!" he said to himself. "I'll go over and see why the bush isn't burning up." When the LORD saw Moses coming near the bush, he called him by name, and Moses answered, "Here I am."  God replied, "Don't come any closer. Take off your sandals--the ground where you are standing is holy.

Exodus 3: 1 - 3

When God speaks to you about important matters in your life, it is a very big deal!  In fact, when God spoke to Moses out of the burning bush, even the ground around the bush was holy!

But you can know this for certain: When God speaks to you about anything, the fact that He is speaking to you is the most important thing of all!  God could have created man and then remained quiet as human beings attempted to figure out the purpose of life and how they should live it.  

Some have said you should only pray about important matters because God does not deal with the mundane things in your life.  The truth is however, that God in involved in every beat of your heart and every breath you take!  God is not a God who is far away, but He is very near!  When Jesus said “I am with you always” He was not speaking figuratively!

I sincerely believe that God will speak to you and me about even the ordinary things in life, if we will but listen!  When God speaks, even the most insignificant day becomes a burning bush experience for you!

“Lord Jesus, help me today to listen for Your voice and to look for my burning bush as I walk with You through the wilderness of this life!  Praise Your Holy Name now and forever.  Amen.”
