The Burning Bush
The Burning Bush
When I have went through town I have seen this Burning Bush and it reminded me of the bible story in Exodus 3:1-5, about Moses and how God spoke out of The Burning Bush. This is such a pretty bush in the fall, I have always wanted one, they add so much color to your yard.
Moses was keeping the sheep, he didn’t have any high end job, just doing what he was suppose to be doing! Some would say that was a very low job for a man who once held the position of a prince in Pharoah’s court. But God will use us in whatever position we are at, we just need to have a willing heart, love the Lord, obey his commandments. It doesn’t matter what our status in life is, but more what our relationship with God is.
The Burning Bush was just a thorny old bush, it wasn’t a great stately cedar and God used it to speak to Moses. Is God somehow trying to get your attention, do you have a Burning Bush in your life?
Exodus 3: 4 And when the LORD saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. Moses said, “Here am I.” Are we willing to say Here Am I?
Funny little story, when our 14 year old granddaughter was 1 1/2, her mom & her came to our house, my husband and I were sitting in the other room watching tv, our granddaughter came in through the patio doors and announcing, “I’m Here!”
We need to be like that little granddaughter of ours and announce to God, “I’m Here!” Willing spirit to serve the Lord wherever he wants to use us.
Amy Carmicheal a missionary in India for 55 years, opened orphanges and a mission, a great servant for the Lord, if you have never read her life story I encouraged you to. She wrote many books about her mission work, one of her inspiring moments she wrote:
Give me the love that leads the way,
The faith that nothing can dismay,
The hope no disappointments tire,
The passion that will burn like fire,
Let me not sink to be a clod:
Make me Thy fuel, flame of God.
I am willing, I am able thine Lord!!
