“And when the Lord saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, here am I.” Exodus 3:4
When Moses saw the burning bush at Horeb, it caught his attention. So, he said, “I will go up and see this strange sight – why is there fire and yet the bush is not consumed.” When he got closer, something amazing happened: God spoke to him from the midst of the burning bush. As children of God, there are times when we are faced with a ‘burning bush’ kind of situation. A situation that does not make any sense, a disturbing situation that looks like it is going to consume everything around us and lead to ruin. It could happen to your finances, marriage, career, or your health. Brethren, God is using that situation to draw you to Himself.
Approach your ‘burning bush’ situation as though God is trying to talk to you from the midst of it. Do not be distracted by the fire of your situation but be eager to hear the voice of God. Though it burns, you shall not be consumed!
Father, give me the strength to approach every situation of my life with courage, so that I may receive your Word concerning my life. Amen
