When Moses met a burning bush, the LAST thing he wanted to do was take on the most powerful man in the world.
God said, “I am sending you to Pharaoh to bring my people out of Egypt.”
Moses said, “Who am I that I should go?”
God said, “I will be with you.”
Moses said, “Suppose they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ What do I tell them?”
God said, “I Am has sent me.”
Moses said, “What if they don’t believe me or listen to me?”
God said, “I will give you a sign.”
Moses said, “I have never been eloquent, I don’t speak well.”
God said, “I’ll give you words.”
Moses begged, “Please send someone else.”
God got angry and said, “I’ll send Aaron with you.”
This morning, I’m wondering what we think and say and do when we run into a burning bush…
Are you making excuses? Or are you embracing your challenge?
When God calls you to an incredibly big task, you’re going to feel inadequate. It’s bound to happen. At first, you can try to talk your way out of the task, but eventually you have to make a choice…
Do you beg for God to choose someone else? Or do you suck it up and listen to the voice?
Do you shrink back and run away? Or do you keep step with the Holy Spirit?
Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. -Galatians 5:25
