Have you taken a moment to ponder what Moses must have been feeling emotionally and physically during his encounter with God at the burning bush? This was his first encounter with God.
I know there are other more episodic encounters between the two, but this was Moses’ first time encountering God.
What a heart pounding experience this must have been.
This encounter changed Moses’ life forever.
Yet, Moses had to overcome his own fear of inadequacy before committing to his complete life change.
Surely his life would have changed simply by having contact with God’s spirit, but he had to get past his fears before accepting his role in the full plan God had for his life.
But once God gave a response to all of Moses’ weak excuses, Moses finally picked up his mantle and became all that he was purposed to be in God’s plan.
If a book where to be written about our lives, at what occasion would the readers find our weak excuses we give to God?
Then Moses said to God, “Behold, I am going to the sons of Israel, and I will say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you.’ Now they may say to me, ‘What is His name?’ What shall I say to them?” God said to Moses, ” I AM WHO I AM”; and He said, “Thus you shall say to the sons of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.'” God, furthermore, said to Moses, “Thus you shall say to the sons of Israel, ‘The Lord , the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you.’ This is My name forever, and this is My memorial-name to all generations. Go and gather the elders of Israel together and say to them, ‘The Lord , the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, has appeared to me, saying, “I am indeed concerned about you and what has been done to you in Egypt.
