"When the Lord saw that he had gone over to look, God called to him from within the bush, “Moses! Moses!” And Moses said, “Here I am.” (Exodus 3:4)
Long before the birth of Jesus, Moses had to wait for God to speak to him on a mountaintop or through a burning bush. At that time, mankind did not have constant access to an intimate relationship with God.
How often do we still ask for our own burning bush, wishing for an explicit, tangible sign or a clear word from Him? When it feels like we’re waiting and waiting to hear from Him. Even as followers of Christ we can start to believe God is far away.
Jesus has bridged the gap between us and God. He is God’s answer to our desire for a burning bush or a mountaintop conversation with Him. Jesus has restored our relationship with Him and made a way for us to daily approach His throne boldly.
"Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel." (Isaiah 7:14)
We find comfort in knowing that God is with us. He hears our prayers. If God can mend our broken relationship with Him, think of what He can and will do in our lives.
Enjoy a wonderful day knowing God is with us.
