Now Moses was tending the flock of Jethro his father-in-law, the priest of Midian. And he led the flock to the back of the desert, and came to Horeb,
the mountain of God.
AndtheAngel of theLordappeared to him in a flame of fire from the midst of a bush. So he looked, and behold, the bush was burning with fire,
but the bush was not consumed.
Then Moses said, “I will now turn aside and see this great sight, why the bush does not burn."
God showed Moses an amazing and unusual sight - a miracle.
God did not call him to come over.
God just manifested the great sight.
Moses went to it.
He could have ignored it and continued herding his sheep.
History would have forgotten him.
Instead, he turned aside.
This is the vital theme for all the chapters of this book.
We are living in very strangetimes.
The strangeness is an aggregate of many Burning Bushes.We need to understand—but not be corrupted by—the spirit of this age.
The Lord is relying on us to bring about His kingdom.Dealing with Burning Bushes is not comfortable.
Like Moses, we need to leave our routines, perhaps even subject our sheep to some vulnerability, and go and
check the strange and amazing sight. Then God will speak. Not before.
He is waiting for us.
The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Psalm 19:1
