Key Verse

“And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt” (Exodus 3:3).

Text: Exodus 3:1-10

Walt Disney shared his thoughts on adversity succinctly with the following words, “All the adversity I’ve had in my life have strengthened me. You may not realize it when it happens… may be the best thing in the world for you”. Many have failed where others have succeeded while some have suffered in poverty and penury in the midst of plenty because they failed to see, through their present adverse circumstances, a future of great possibilities.
Moses, in today’s text, elicited the natural tendency in man to be inquisitive. It was an unusual sight that should have caused fear and withdrawal but he rather took the uncommon decision to probe further into the intriguing sight of a bush in flame and yet not consumed. His decision paid off because he thereafter received a special message from God to lead the children of Israel out of Egypt. What a challenge to Christians! We should always set aside our fears and move with courage to discover and pursue God’s will for our lives.
Moses no doubt painted a picture of a diligent and dutiful shepherd. He was gainfully engaged in spite of the fact that he was a fugitive from Egypt and at the risk of death if caught by Pharaoh’s men. Kingdom citizens must not see any job as demeaning or be lazy with what they have to do to cater for themselves and their family. In the faithful discharge of what we call little, God will lead us to greater things as He did with Moses. It is also instructive to note that God is never unmindful of the problems confronting His people and will never be late in rising to deliver them.
Are you going through difficult times and thinking of giving up? All you need do is to heed God’s call to come closer to Him. He knows what you are going through and He has the power to deliver if you cry to Him for help.

Thought for the day

The flame becomes tame when God is with you in it.
