I have a great curiosity about God, the meaning of life, and spiritual things. I think most people would like to have an experience with God or see a miracle to help build up their faith. God is invisible to us, so seeing something beyond our world would be reassuring of the reality of the unseen world. I have seen and experienced miracles and had fascinating experiences that confirm my faith in God. Have you? What I have felt is ‘that feeling’- that I am not worthy, yet loved. Out of place, but in the exact right place. Moses had an amazing first encounter with God at the burning bush. His curiosity was met with the realization of his own feelings of unworthiness and the profound nature of God’s holiness. I get it. The only thing to do, is to take off our shoes, acknowledge God and receive His instruction! And to say again “Lord, here I am”!
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.” Then he said, “I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob.” At this, Moses hid his face, because he was afraid to look at God. Exodus 3:5-6 NIV
What experiences with God can I draw encouragement, strength, direction and purpose from today?
God, as this day begins- I want to thank You for revealing Yourself in miraculous ways to me over the years. I want to reaffirm my response to Your great and holy calling. I am ready and available to serve You and fulfill Your mission in our world. Thank you for the example of Moses.
