Heart Pounding Encounter

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.

I’m Not Smart Enough To Do That

How many time have you had a purpose placed in your spirit only to doubt that you have the ability to make it happen? Well, you may not. It happens to me occasionally. But that shouldn’t always stop us from trying.

If God has purposed something in your spirit He is also faithful to help make it happen.

You can count on that. I’ve seen Him do it to many time personally for me and for others. I’m not saying I always jump to do everything, because I am not perfect. But I am still trying and growing and that is what each of us have to commit to doing.

We have to have courage and faith then take the first step.

This week on my LIFE Group we will be talking about Moses and his doubts when faced with a monumental ask from God. I can’t speak, I can’t lead, who should I say sent me and other doubts that Moses had. But God still encouraged him to his purpose.

What stretch goals have you set for yourself based on a prompting by the Holy Spirit? Take time to discuss in the comments and let other readers encourage and help you on your journey.

But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But he must ask in faith without any doubting, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind. For that man ought not to expect that he will receive anything from the Lord, being a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.
James 1:5‭-‬8 NASB
