When God Speaks

When God Speaks

Together with kindness and in understanding, let’s take this time to self reflect. I am here to inspire, encourage, and remind you that God has given us the most important weapon we have to fight the enemy, His Word.

Now let’s dress our soul like we dress our bodies, EVERYDAY!

When God Speaks

Exodus 3:1-5

New International Version

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 to 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.”

The story of Moses and the burning bush, can be found in the book of Exodus and through these incredible events, Moses encounters God on Mount Horeb and He reveals himself to him. How about it friends, have you ever had an encounter with the Good Lord?  The burning bush was Gods form made visible. I do believe that God shows himself to us in ways we can understand. What do you think?

Did you know that in scripture this was the first time the word “holy” was used in reference to God. Here we see God reveal his holiness in a way that had never been seen before. Moses even made a song about it. God holiness can be seen as he commands Moses to remove his sandals because he was standing on holy ground. Holiness involves separation. God’s holiness means that He is set apart from everything He has made, it is the distinction between God’s deity and our humanity. As God speaks to Moses he shares with him, his personal name, “I AM WHO I AM.” He has no beginning or end, he is Alpha and Omega, the First and the Last.

I can remember how my grandmother would adorn her Christmas Tree with plenty of cute trinkets of all shapes, sizes, and colors. Last year I did come into possession of one of her trinkets, a miniature white metal chair. As I searched carefully for a place for it on the tree, I thought about the tiny chair in my hand and what it meant. It was a tiny piece of my grandma’s favorite holiday. She loved Christmas. But I also saw God in that image as my resting place, and the action of just having a seat. I can recall how during those intimate conversations with Him, I would just ask him, Lord what do you think?” ” What do I do and how do I get there from here?” Now that I have asked the questions, in my seat it’s time to listen to God’s answers.

God speaks to us through many ways friends. One way I believe is through people. Secondly, through the scripture. Thirdly, through praise, worship, and prayer time. He is never gonna leave us hanging, whether it’s yes or no, He always answers.

Hearing God speak to you starts from within, and there is where we must continue to building our personal relationship.  John 10:27 tells us, “My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.” Are you ready friends? Are you ready to listen? Amen.

Remember friends, we are each others’s keeper and the only time we should be looking down on someone is when we are helping them up.
