moses%u2019 first encounter with God is recorded in exodus 3. the way their meeting goes down should be extremely encouraging for anyone who has ever felt stuck doing average stuff in a distant place.
the setting is the far side of the desert.
moses is tending sheep.
the sheep belong to moses%u2019 father in law.
a bush catches on fire.
moses walks over to look%u2026
in reality when you peel back the layers%u2026 its really quite ordinary. moses is performing menial manual labour. working for his father in law. does it get any more mundane?
almost all encounters with God begin that way.
we position ourselves for encounter by walking with Jesus every day. being obedient and faithful in our ordinary lives. having regular time of prayer and worship. reading the bible regularly, if not daily! we position ourselves to be used by God as we live a life that pleases Him, being transformed and making outward the inward righteousness. taking up our cross, dying to self daily, refusing to compromise and bow to the status quo of the world around us.
in the ordinaryness of our life God can shine and do amazing things.
will you remove your shoes, draw close, and receive your assignment? will you give the Lord permission to ignite your ordinary?
