Fire On The Mountain

Scripture For Meditation — Ex 3:1-5

One consistent word that the Lord has been speaking repeatedly to the Church over this period that we are in, is that He is doing a “New Thing”!

As He said in Isa 43:19 —

Behold, I will do a new thing, Now it shall spring forth; Shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness And rivers in the desert. (NKJV)

As I meditated on this scripture, the word “Behold” jumped out at me.

What did this word “behold” mean to the Hebrew in the context of that message?

The word represents the idea of looking toward something of interest — The underlying meaning is the idea of a continuation; it meant “a looking toward something continually”.

So, God prefaced the announcement of what He was about to do with the word behold. In other words, He was saying to them to pay attention.

Pay Attention

He was saying to them as He is saying to us today, that we need to watch closely, to pay attention to the things unfolding before us, so we don’t miss out on the new things that He is about to do; the great things that He is already doing!

In our scripture for meditation today, we see that very concept playing out in the life of Moses in his encounter with God in his “burning bush experience”:

Exo 3:2 And the Angel of the LORD appeared to him in a flame of fire from the midst of a bush. So he looked, and behold, the bush was burning with fire, but the bush was not consumed.

God had kickstarted a process to do something to intervene in the affairs of the Israelites and deliver them from their captivity in Egypt, and indeed in Moses’ life; and He announced this by grabbing Moses’ attention in an unusual occurrence.

Exo 3:3 Then Moses said, “I will now turn aside and see this great sight, why the bush does not burn.”

When God saw that Moses responded to what He was manifesting before him, God revealed His plans to him.

Exo 3:4 — So when the LORD saw that he turned aside to look, God called to him from the midst of the bush and said, “Moses, Moses!” And he said, “Here I am.”

Take A Closer Look

Child of God, could God have been trying to get your attention through your own “burning bush experience” to usher you into your “new things” and you are not seeing the signs?

If you look carefully at the verses of scripture that we just read; it is interesting to note that Moses did not just see what was unfolding before Him; but crucially, he also saw correctly!

What Are You Looking At?

Is it not strange that it wasn’t the sight of the angel in the midst of the burning bush that caught his attention, but what he turned aside to look at, what caught his attention, was the fact that the bush was burning with fire but was not consumed!

Exo 3:3 Then Moses said, “I will now turn aside and see this great sight, why the bush does not burn.”

Are you looking at what is unfolding before you at work, in your business, in your ministry, all around you in this season and taking notice of what God is showing you? Are you looking at what God really wants you to focus on?

Some of us may be looking and indeed seeing, but we may inadvertently be focusing on the wrong thing!

Moses didn’t focus on the angel (as awesome as that sight probably was to him) — it was the “less spectacular” sight of the bush burning without being consumed that really caught his attention.

Child of God, I pray that God will open your eyes to see what you are really meant to see, so that you can hear your “marching orders”; the word that will bring you into your breakthrough in this new season.

Pray against every distraction that the enemy may have been using to draw your attention away from what God is really doing in your life and situation.

Pray, Lord open my eyes to see what I am meant to see in what You are doing.

Speak Your word to me that I may know what to do in this season.

Pray against the spirit of confusion, that you will have clarity in your mind and spirit, to see, to hear and to do as God will instruct in Jesus’s Name.
