“Do not come any closer,” the Lord warned. “Take off your sandals, for you are standing on holy ground. I am the God of your father —the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.” When Moses heard this, he covered his face because he was afraid to look at God. Exodus 3:5-6 NLT
One day, Moses was going about his daily routines when he saw something strange. He knew the area. He had been working in the community for about forty years. There was nothing new to see, or so he thought. He looked up and out of the corner of his eyes, he saw a strange sight. There was a bush burning but the fire didn’t bring change in the bush. He was confused. There was something unusual about this fire so he decided to take a closer look.
As he approached the bush, a voice called out to him out from the burning bush. He was warned to stay where he was. Then, he had to remove his sandals. For Moses, this was a life changing experience. An encounter with God changes your life. As he continued to have a conversation with God, God revealed himself to Moses. I’m sure as a child, his mother taught him about his history so he understood the significance of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. God had a task for Moses. He had to retire from watching sheep and walk into the role that God ordained for him. An encounter with God brings change into your life.
Thought for Today: God has a plan and purpose for each life.
Have a blessed day and walk in faith and victory.
