Exodus 3 Now Moses was tending the flock of Jethro his father-in-law, the priest of Midian, and he led the flock to the far side of the wilderness and came to Horeb, the mountain of God. There the angel of the Lord appeared to him in flames of fire from within a bush. Moses saw that though the bush was on fire it did not burn up. So Moses thought, “I will go over and see this strange sight—why the bush does not burn up
People have been quick to try to explain away the phenomenon of the “burning bush” for many years now. Everything from spontaneous combustion of creosote bushes to mysterious so called “earthquake lights”. To me, since the Bible has been found to be reliable in more ways than science ever thought to be, (See Jesus and the house built on sand Matthew 7) I choose to take the Bible at face value particularly in this instance. God had Moses’ attention. He knew Moses could not resist in his curiosity the strange sight he saw in the distance. Most of his contemporaries would not have undertaken the journey to see. It was this trait in Moses that God knew He could use to bring about His plan for the rest of Moses’ kinsmen.
How about you? What does it take to get your attention? A calamity, a disaster, an illness, a great personal crisis or failure of some kind? I am reminded of the weird statement that’s come out of some veterans of war that I have known. “There are no atheists in a foxhole.” Is it time for you to “go… and see”?
