Then Moses said, “I will now turn aside and see this great sight, why the bush does not burn.” Exodus 3:3 NKJV
Moses lived in a desert wilderness. He was a shepherd. His living conditions were primitive and unforgiving. In the desert death and danger are as constant as the heat. Moses saw something that should have frightened him. He decided to get a closer look.
It was the location of the burning bush that moved Moses to investigate. The local priest was his father in law. He knew about the “mountain where God lives.” The burning bush was a miraculous sight. Moses was curious about the God who commanded the miracle.
God revealed His plan to use Moses to set Israel free from bondage. Moses asked, “why me?” God overcame Moses’ objections. Then Moses asked a question that determines the eternal destination of everyone everywhere. Moses asked God “who are You?”
The God of the miraculous wants you to turn aside from the hustle and bustle of life. He wants you to be strong and courageous. Jesus wants you to follow Him on your sojourn through a world full of distractions!
God did not want Moses to go before mighty Pharaoh in his own strength and wisdom. He did not want Moses to believe he was qualified to deliver his people. The Lord wanted Moses to trust God to deliver His people.
The Lord wanted Moses to know he was fully dependent on God to deliver Israel. He wanted Moses to know the God of the miraculous would be with him. He wanted Moses to be confident God would use him to accomplish His purpose!
Moses was raised among people who worshiped many gods. When he realized he was standing before the One True God Moses asked the Lord His name. He wanted to know the God who commands the miraculous and chooses humble people to serve Him!
Do you want to know God?
Turn to Jesus with your questions. He has the answers you seek. Jesus wants you to know Him intimately!
Jesus wants you to humble yourself before Him today. Jesus wants to use you to set people free from bondage to unbelief!
Do not trust in your own strength and wisdom. The God of the miraculous is with you when you step out in faith. Follow as closely to Jesus as you can. Lean on and into Jesus. Draw near to Jesus and He will draw near to you. You can know Jesus intimately!
Turn aside and see the great miracles the One True God is performing today!
