I laid there thinking about Moses and then started thinking about the opportunity I had just learned about. An opportunity that was so ridiculous. I mean, leave my job?! Leave my country?! It was crazy to think it was even an option. And yet something caught my attention.
So here I am a little over a year later. I quit my job. I left my country. And I’m embarking on the ridiculous. I couldn’t help but laugh at God’s perfect timing when my first devotional after I arrived started with this...
priest of Midian and also Moses‘ father-in-law.) When Moses led the flock
to the west side of the desert, he came to Sinai, the mountain of God.
There the angel of the Lord appeared to him in flames of fire coming out of
a bush. Moses saw that busy was on fire, but it was not burning up. So
he said, ‘I will go closer to this strange thing. How can a bush continue
burning without burning up?‘
When the Lord saw Moses was coming to look at the bush, God called
to him from the busy, ‘Moses, Moses!”
And Moses said, ‘Here I am.‘
Then God said, ‘Do not come any closer. Take off your sandals, because
you are standing on holy ground. I am the God of your ancestors - the God
of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.‘ ...
The Lord said...’I have heard the cries of the people of Israel, and I have seen
the way the Egyptians have made life hard for them. So now I am sending
you to the king of Egypt. Go! Bring my people, the Israelites, out of Egypt!’ ”
-Exodus 3:1-6, 9-10
continue it until it is finished when Jesus Christ comes again.” (Phil. 1:6)
Did you see what God is doing? A good work in you.
Did you see when he will be finished? When Jesus comes again.
May I spell out the message? God ain’t finished with you yet.
Your Father wants you to know that. And to convince you, he may surprise you.”**
