BURNING BUSH MOMENTS
“Now Moses was keeping the flock of his father-in-law, Jethro, the priest of Midian, and he led his flock to the west side of the wilderness and came to Horeb, the mountain of God. And the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush. He looked, and behold, the bush was burning; yet it was not consumed. And Moses said, “I will turn aside to see this great sight, why the bush is not burned.” When the Lord saw that he turned aside to see, God called to him out of the bush, “Moses, Moses!” And he said, “Here I am.” Then he said, “Do not come near; take your sandals off your feet, for the place on which you are standing is holy ground.” And he said, “I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.” And Moses hid his face, for he was afraid to look at God.” (Book of Exodus 3:1-6)
Burning Bush moments are never forgotten. We turn to look and see the source and may be told to take off our shoes because it is a holy moment. When the Lord speaks to us, though we are looking, even straining, to see… we then decide to hide our face and simply become the illumination of the bush.
“For if you believed Moses, you would believe me; for he wrote of me.” Jesus
