Holy Ground

Image of a burning bush on a blue background with the words "do not come any closer" God said "take off your sandals for the place where you are standing is holy ground." Exodus 3:5
"Do not come any closer,' God said. 'Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground.' " ~Exodus 3:5

This has always been my favorite 'Moses' story - it gives me chills every time I "hear" God's voice talking to him. Can you picture this scene? Moses is a shepherd, minding his own business, out away from everyone and something catches his eye. Fire! Moses gets closer and sees that it is a thorn bush burning, yet the flames are not destroying it. Suddenly, the Lord speaks from the flame, "Moses!" and immediately Moses replies, "Here I am".

That burning-yet-not-consumed thorn bush is a purposeful representation of Jesus Christ. There are so many layers of symbolism - the wood of the Cross, where Christ experienced the flames of hell for us but lives forevermore, the thorn bush as His Crown, the promise of deliverance, the holy ground - set apart for a specific purpose.

God asks Moses to go back to Egypt where is he #1 on the most wanted list. But this time, God is on his side - instead of saving one Hebrew man in angry reaction, Moses will save all the people by the power of God and not of himself.

Let this be a lesson to us - anger never accomplishes the will of God ~James 1:20. When you encounter a situation that fans the flame of rage, stop and while you are counting to 10, pray. Ask God for the right response - He will ALWAYS answer - follow His voice, not your reactive own. That's a Win Win!
Have a blessed day!
