Exodus 3:2-4

“There the angel of the Lord appeared to him in flames of fire from within a bush. Moses saw that though the bush was on fire it did not burn up. So Moses thought, “I will go over and see this strange sight—why the bush does not burn up.” When the Lord saw that he had gone over to look, God called to him from within the bush, “Moses! Moses!” And Moses said, “Here I am.”

“…Here I am.”

Moses had been on the run. He was living in the desert far away from his people and His calling.

However he was not hidden from God. God always has the habit of showing up at the critical moment. The voice of God told him it was time.

Moses had many excuses.  I cannot speak.  I am afraid.  I am far away.  All these excuses were really ways of saying; “I do not really want to go.”

God told Moses that the fulfillment was not about his fears but about God’s power and Moses’ obedience.  So go!!  NOW!!!


Faith is a call to act upon the promise.
