I don't know about you, but sometimes I wonder how I could possibly meet God in a given circumstance. I search hard when there are big issues, but I can be forgetful in the daily routine.
Yet, God meets us where we are at. It is in our daily routine that we can encounter God. We must simply be observant and curious enough to check it out.
If we are willing to see God, God will reveal His presence, His name, His plan, and His purposes for our lives.
I love how Moses saw the burning bush and just went to go check it out. It was in this simple act of curiosity that he had the most intimate conversation with God.
I love that he was real and raw with his fears. He feared his ability was not good enough. He feared how the people would respond. He feared that he would not be recognized as one with authority.
With each fear God responded in kind.
I AM WITH YOU!
I AM THE GOD OF YOUR FORE- FATHERS.
KNOW MY NAME!
I AM SENDING YOU!
TELL THEM THAT!
Such intimacy, security, and comfort found as Moses just went about his day watching his flock if sheep.
Do I watch for God? AM I willing to pause and check things out when He is at work around me? Do I share with Him my greatest fears? Do I listen to His answers?
I can know this. God does not change and if He did this with Moses, He will do this with me.
I can trust that God is present!
I will worship Him alone!
I know His Name!
I will share what I know!
I can trust this will influence generations!
