When God is Trying to Get Your Attention (Exodus 3:1-10)

Bro. Mike Meade, May 20, 2018
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

It was just an ordinary day for Moses the shepherd. He was tending to his father-in-law's flock on the backside of the dessert. But God had other plans, and wanted to get Moses's attention. The next thing Moses knew, he was talking with God through a burning bush.

Maybe you find yourself comfortable, going through your ordinary, routine day. And then, BAM! Something happens to throw a wrench in it. Is it God trying to get your attention? Maybe it's a sermon, maybe it's a passage of scripture, maybe it's a circumstance.

But, if God is trying to get your attention, do not ignore it!

Exodus 3:1-10

1Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father in law, the priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the backside of the desert, and came to the mountain of God, even to Horeb. 2And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed. 3And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt. 4And when the LORD saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I. 5And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground. 6Moreover he said, I am the God of thy 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 upon God. 7And the LORD said, I have surely seen the affliction of my people which are in Egypt, and have heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters; for I know their sorrows; 8And I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land unto a good land and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey; unto the place of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites. 9Now therefore, behold, the cry of the children of Israel is come unto me: and I have also seen the oppression wherewith the Egyptians oppress them. 10Come now therefore, and I will send thee unto Pharaoh, that thou mayest bring forth my people the children of Israel out of Egypt. (KJV)
