May You Encounter The God of The Burning Bush

Now Moses was tending the flock of Jethro his father-in-law, the priest of Midian, and he led the flock to the far side of the wilderness and came to Horeb, the mountain of God. 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 him from within the bush, "Moses! Moses!" And Moses said, "Here I am."
"Do not come any closer," God said. "Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground."...At this, Moses hid his face, because he was afraid to look at God. Exodus 3:1-6.
It was another ordinary day for Moses in the desert after fleeing from Egypt for murder.
Forty years had passed by since he traded the clothes of a Prince in Egypt for that of an ordinary shepherd in the desert. He really had nothing to his name because he did not even possess his own flocks.

Did he have any hope of a different future? Did he ever reflect on what life must have been like if he had continued to live like a prince in Egypt? Did he regret trying to save his fellow Hebrew from the hand of the Egyptian he murdered? Was the sacrifice worth it?
Did God have any plans for him? Or had the God of his fathers forgotten about him?

The ways of God are beyond our finite understanding. One day is like a thousand years and a thousand years is like one day in His sight. That ordinary day was about to change into one of Moses' most unforgettable days. He was about to encounter the God of the burning bush who had been waiting for forty years. Moses was about to enter holy grounds and divine purposes!
Everything changed when he encountered the God of the burning bush.

Maybe like Moses, you are wondering what the future holds. Are you wondering if the desert is all there is to your life? The answer is: No, God has more for you. The desert is not your final destination. God could be preparing to give you your own burning bush encounter.
May you encounter the God of the burning bush soon.

Prayer: Father, I know you have wonderful plans for me even in what currently seems like a desert experience. I wait in expectation for the unfolding of those plans. I know I am about to encounter you soon. Thank you, Father. Amen.
