Pressures and stress can cause one to run from their troubles and dilemmas in life. Moses had a call on his life to deliver Israel from their years of bondage in Egypt. One day Moses saw a Egyptian solider beating a Hebrew and he took matters into his own hands. He killed the solider and ends up running for his own life.
Moses ends up spending the next forty years of his life on the backside of a desert. Was God through with him? Had God changed his mind about Moses call to deliver Israel from the hand of Pharaoh?
God says; "The calling of God is without repentance." Another words, God never changes his mind about his call and mandate for your life. God called you knowing that you would have hick-ups and setbacks in your life. Look through the entire bible and you will find that each of his servants had their own issues. God wasn't through with Moses and has him in a place that he will see the next step for his future.
Moses was going about his normal caring for the sheep and suddenly a bush catches fire. That's not really abnormal, but the fire doesn't go out, and the bush isn't consumed. Moses takes a closer look and God speaks, "Moses, take your shoes off, for you are standing on holy ground." Moses would never forget this moment in life.
He hears God tell him to go to Pharaoh and complete the work that God had placed in his heart in his early days. Moses dramatic experience at a burning bush would take his feet to the exact assignment he had been given many years prior.
This day God was giving Moses a fresh start, a new beginning. To many of God's kids waste so much energy over their past mistakes, their past blunders, their past impatience. God called you knowing that you were going to mess up. God called you knowing that you were going to have some hang-ups along the way.
In spite of our weaknesses, and our shortcomings, God still calls us reminding us that the excellency is in Christ. It's his might and his power, and his hand that does the work. Moses didn't have the power to deliver a fly out of Egypt, but with God's hand, he would see rivers turn to blood, plagues of frogs and lice and much more pressure would come upon the Egyptians.
Then he led them out with Gods mighty strong hand. With the breath of God's nostrils, he blew a whole some five miles wide to get three million Jews across the Red Sea. God had to show Moses, it won't be your hand getting them out, but mine alone.
Are you walking in the gift, the call, and the assignment that God has given you? Did you realize He chose you to be His voice, His feet, His ears, and His legs? When Moses heard God's voice at a burning bush and moved accordingly, things happened that would forever be written down in history. What about you? Have you forgotten that God also has an assignment for you? Have you taken time to walk over to the bush, the circumstance that you can't make heads or tales of? Listen closely to what God may be saying to you. Never push off or back off from the words from a Holy God that will catapult you over into your destiny.
God chooses the weak things of the earth to confound the mighty. Quit allowing you're past trajectory to hinder what He wants to do in your future. He has never forgotten His call, His mandate, and His plan for your life. His fire can birth fresh wind and fresh life into your being today.
