The Moses Experiment: Part 4

Close your eyes. Take a deep breathe. Relax and picture this… You’re out in a field tending to a flock of woolly white sheep. The sky is bright and the clouds are the fluffy type that look like any variety of objects. You’re slowly walking amongst the flock thinking about how you wound up watching these sheep that don’t even belong to you when off in the distance you notice something out of the ordinary. It looks like a fire. Not a big one, in fact it looks like a single bush burning. Odd. Even more peculiar is the fact that despite the heat and flames the bush looks no worse for the wear.

This kicks your curiosity into high gear and your pace towards the bush increases. Step…..step…step..step.stepstepstepstep.

“Moses.”

You Stop.

Did someone just say my name you think to yourself. Nah, I must have been in the sun too long.

“Moses,” the voice says. 

“Umm… yes that’s me.”

“Stop where you’re at and take off your shoes, you’re standing on holy ground.”

You quickly remove your sandals and feel the warm earth between your toes.

“Moses, this is God and I have something I need you to do.”

“Who me?”

“Yes you,” the voice says.

“Um…alright, what can I do for you?”

“Well, I need you to rescue the Israelites.”

At hearing this your eyes grow wide, your palms get sweaty and a lump forms in your throat.

 Okay, open your eyes and go look at yourself in the mirror. What do you see? A normal, average person? A person who goes about a relatively uneventful life? Someone who is unworthy of doing the work of God?

That’s what Moses would have thought had he looked in the mirror after receiving God’s instructions. And yet God chose him to save a nation.

If God can use a stuttering murderer to free a nation, just imagine what God can use you for.
