Exodus 3:1-22

November 2, 2007 Leave a comment Go to comments

“But Moses protested to God, ‘Who am I to appear before Pharaoh? Who am I to lead the people of Israel out of Egypt?”’
God answered, ‘I will be with you. And this is your sign that I am the one who has sent you: When you have brought the people out of Egypt, you will worship God at this very mountain.'” v11-12

Many people have heard the story of Moses and the burning bush. At a young age it is taught and we are amazed that God talked to Moses in this way. it is radical and awesome!!! But there is more to it than that. God used the burning bush to get Moses attention. This leaves us having to answer this question, “What does God have to do to get my attention?”

For Moses it took a burning bush, for me it takes …..? But when He gets our attention, how do we respond to His message!

Moses made excuses because he felt inadequate for the job God asked him to do. It was natural for him to feel that way. He was inadequate all by himself. But God wasn’t asking Moses to work alone. He offered other resources to help. God often calls us to do tasks that seem too difficult, but he doesn’t ask us to do them alone. God offers us his resources, just as he did to Moses. We should not hide behind our inadequacies, as Moses did, but look beyond ourselves to the great resources available. Then we can allow God to use our unique contributions.

When God does speak to you, which may not happen through a burning bush, do you hear Him? Are you willing to do what He asks and follow where He leads, even if you think it is impossible?
