God at work

02 October 2018
‘The LORD appeared to him in flames of fire from within a bush.’

On a day that started out like many of the days before, Moses spotted a burning bush out of the corner of his eye. Then he heard a voice from out of the bush calling his name. That certainly wouldn’t have been what Moses was expecting. When God works, it’s not always in the ways we expect either. Just when we think we’ve got God all figured out, He surprises us. We may not encounter a burning bush or talking donkey (take a look at Numbers 22), but He can work in many different ways. And we won’t always understand them. God says: ‘My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways, says the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts’ (Isaiah 55:8-9 NKJV). Sometimes, we might not even be open to seeing God’s work in our lives. We’re often so busy drifting through life aimlessly and getting frustrated with its monotony, that we forget to look for how God’s moving in our lives. We need to be getting up each morning and praying: ‘Father, thank You for this new day. Give me fresh insights in Your Word that reveal new aspects of Your character so that I might do Your will and glorify You. Show me how You’re working in my life.’ We need to become more alert and aware; we don’t want to miss what God has for us. When Moses encountered the burning bush, he said: ‘Amazing!… Why isn’t that bush burning up? I must go and see it’ (Exodus 3:3 NLT). Let’s try to ‘see’ what God is doing in our lives, too.

 

What Now?

Every day, pray that prayer above. Ask God to surprise you each day with how He’s working around you.
