Through the burning bush, God called Moses, changing his life forever. God called Moses to a special task, Moses could have turned his back on the call, but something captured his attention and he listened.
We all have “burning bush” moments when God calls us to pause and notice God’s presence. We have a choice, just like Moses had. We can refuse God’s call, or we can let it lead us into a deeper connection with God and a deeper understanding of our part in God’s purpose in our life.
Burning bushes come in a variety of guises in our everyday lives. Not all calls are dramatic, but they will touch us deeply and they till change us. Your burning bush may come through a dream, an overpowering worship experience, a sight of great beauty or wonder. It may be a moment of great love or great grief that breaks us open. Whatever it is, it will lead to a life of greater abundance and contribution.
We need to be ready with open ears, hearts and minds to listen to what God is saying and to where God is calling us when our burning bush moments come.
God of the burning bush, slow us down, grab our attention, so that we can hear your voice when you call. Amen. — LD
