Exodus 34 When the Lord saw that he had gone over to look, God called to him from within the bush, “Moses! Moses!”
And Moses said, “Here I am.”
5 “Do not come any closer,” God said. “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground.” 6 Then he said, “I am the God of your father,[a] the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob.” At this, Moses hid his face, because he was afraid to look at God. (NIV)
As soon as Moses understood who was speaking to Him his reaction demonstrated the kind of instant transformation that happens in a person when they come face to face with the living God. At this, Moses hid his face, because he was afraid to look at God. Moses was transformed in that moment from a brash, self-confident, man who believed he was capable of withstanding any type of calamity ( and history shows that he was well justified in that opinion of himself) to a penitent believer in all that God required in a relationship with Him.
Unfortunately, as can be seen in the further tory of the Exodus Moses needed constant reminders of that relationship. A sense of destiny or purpose was always in front of him as it is today with many Christian believers. It is in the nitty gritty of every day that we tend to slip our moorings and soon find ourselves adrift in a sea of doubt and despair. Perhaps that is why the Apostle Paul wrote, fix (ing) our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
