Re: Verse reading–Exodus 3:1-14; 4:1-15 (day one)
“When the Lord saw that he had gone over to look, God called to him from the [burning] bush.”–v 4.
It is a common and crushing condition of the human heart. We get so defeated, we stop looking for God, for answers. We grow cynical, negative. Past disappointments seem larger than future hope. We aren’t even curious anymore. In Exodus 3, Moses is man who has experienced significant disappointment. Some of it self-inflicted. Even so, he retains a hope that God is alive and active in the world. When he sees a burning-but-not-consumed bush, he goes to investigate. God honors this resilient hope, this curiosity and speaks to him. What about you, friend? Are you still looking for answers for yourself and your family and your nation? Or, has your heart grown calloused and unbelieving? “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for”—Hebrews 11:1. Did you wake today with hope? Are you still looking for God?
