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’s attention even if it took God setting something alight to do it. God was able to help Moses move forward into a great future. Moses could have easily ignored what was happening but because it fascinated him, he moved closer and he heard God speak.
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. So, what is the burning bush in your life? What is God setting alight in your world to get your attention?
This week let’s have a careful look around so we can discover the fascinating things that God is doing to get our attention. He wants us to draw closer to Him so He can have fellowship with us. Keep an ear out for Him so you can be a part of an amazing journey into the plans & purposes God has for you.
