Exodus 3:4 When the Lord saw Moses coming to take a closer look, God called to him from the middle of the burning bush, “Moses! Moses!”
Have you ever tried to get someone’s attention? You might start off with a look or a wave. If that doesn’t work you may escalate it to calling out their name or whistling. If you really need to connect with that person you’ll do whatever it takes to accomplish that aim. If you persist you’ll eventually be successful.
Today’s verse shows the lengths God will go to get someone’s attention if needs be. Moses is intrigued by this burning bush and as he comes close God calls out to him. God now had Moses attention and He was able to help Moses move forward into a great future. It took God setting something alight to do it. Moses could have easily ignored what was happening but because it fascinated him he moved closer and then God spoke.
So, what is the burning bush in your life? What is God setting alight in your world to get your attention? Have a careful look around you today and you’ll discover fascinating things that God is doing to get your attention, draw you closer to Him and have fellowship with you.
God wants to move us forward in life towards a greater future. It took a burning bush for Moses, a bright light for Saul & a Juniper bush in the middle of nowhere for Elijah but each was able to hear from God and do great things. Keep an ear out for God and join us on this amazing journey into the plans & purposes of God.
