While tending to a flock of his father-in-law’s sheep, Moses came upon a blazing fire from the middle of a bush. Moses was amazed that the bush had not burned up, even though it was engulfed in flames. As he went in to take a closer look, the Lord called out to him from the middle of the bush. In his encounter with the Lord, Moses learned that God would use him to lead His people out of Egypt and into the promised land. Moses, a self-proclaimed poor speaker, was terrified; but God assured him that He would perform miracles and guide him to success.
