Recognizing God’s working
One day Moses was tending the flock of his father-in-law, Jethro, the priest of Midian. He led the flock far into the wilderness and came to Sinai, the mountain of God. There the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a blazing fire from the middle of a bush. Moses stared in amazement. Though the bush was engulfed in flames, it didn’t burn up. “This is amazing,” Moses said to himself. “Why isn’t that bush burning up? I must go see it.” When the Lord saw Moses coming to take a closer look, God called to him from the middle of the bush, “Moses! Moses!” “Here I am!” Moses replied. “Do not come any closer,” the Lord warned. “Take off your sandals, for you are standing on holy ground. Exodus 3:1-5
When your mind is occupied with your daily activities and responsibilities, the tendency is to forget that God is there wanting to be a part of your daily living. This is the reason why you miss the opportunity to grow in your relationship with God. His goal for your life is to attain godliness. “By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence” (2 Peter 1:3). God provided you all the resources you need so you could experience the transformation that He will produce in you. When you realize your part in what God will be doing in your life, every time you wake up you think of how God will lead you to godly living throughout the day. Growing in godliness is not just a decision you make but a lifestyle He called you to live. From the text, while Moses was in his daily activity God interrupted him so he could experience Him. God let Moses see that even in his daily routine he cannot detach himself in experiencing the presence of God. He wants you to grow in your relationship with Him so it is important that you consciously make yourself aware that any moment He can touch your life. It is not necessarily that he will bring you to a burning bush experience like Moses, but He has His ways to let you know that even in ordinary mundane things of life He is there to transform you. Make it a choice that God is there to interfere to help you grow in your relationship with Him. Be open to His working and draw yourself closer to Him through His word so you will know His ways on how He communicates with you His plans.
