Exodus 2:23-25; 3:1-6

23 During those many days the king of Egypt died, and the people of Israel groaned because of their slavery and cried out for help. Their cry for rescue from slavery came up to God. 24 And God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob. 25 God saw the people of Israel—and God knew.

Now Moses was keeping the flock of his father-in-law, Jethro, the priest of Midian, and he led his flock to the west side of the wilderness and came to Horeb, the mountain of God. And the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush. He looked, and behold, the bush was burning, yet it was not consumed. And Moses said, “I will turn aside to see this great sight, why the bush is not burned.” When the Lord saw that he turned aside to see, God called to him out of the bush, “Moses, Moses!” And he said, “Here I am.” Then he said, “Do not come near; take your sandals off your feet, for the place on which you are standing is holy ground.” And he said, “I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.” And Moses hid his face, for he was afraid to look at God.



1. God does not have to remove you from a situation to deliver you from it.


2. How you feel is not always how it is


3. Changing scenery does not change God’s story


When God wants to get your attention…He sometimes speaks from burning bushes.


The miracle for Moses was not horizontal, a burning bush; the miracle for Moses was vertical, God was speaking to Him from the bush. God used a horizontal circumstance to point to a vertical truth. The bush had one purpose…to point Moses to God.
