Do you trust God to be with you when you go out and tell the world who He is? And who do you tell the world He is? Verse 14 tells us He is "I AM". Under whose authority do we raise our children; run our homes. By whose authority do we make decisions? Is it by what culture tells us? By what is acceptable to the world? Or is it by God's authority ONLY, because He is the great "I AM". And all authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Jesus Christ. Therefore all we do is by the authority of Jesus Christ.
When you first believed, did you equate this to service to the Lord. This is what many don't understand. God has come down and He moves His people to do His works. How often it that we say is: "That is not for me" or "I am not gifted like that, but let me do this for You". We are to be ambassadors for Christ. We are to speak and act on His behalf. Do you desire to be used by God?
Who of us, when gathered in the sanctuary on Sunday mornings think about the problems of life instead of focusing on God and what He has in store for each of us this morning. Who of us is engaged in His ministry and who is here to check of a list? When Moses saw the burning bush he put everything aside and he went toward that bush to see what was going on. God had his attention! Do we understand this morning the seriousness of who is speaking to us? Does God have our undivided attention?
As God got Moses' attention with the burning bush, He also has our attention with the cross of Jesus Christ. The cross is talked about every day. God revealed Himself thru the cross, just as He revealed Himself to Mozes thru the burning bush. Many of us are not willing to investigate what God has in store for our lives. Often we are not even in His presence, as life (sports, TV, concerts) are more important then spending time with His people in His house.
What is it you fear most? Death, retirement, financial downfall, your health? Fear is born out of the unknown. So what do you do when you are afraid? Are you impatient just as King Saul? Do you rely on self and take matters in your own hand; because you fear men more then you fear God? Or do you get on your knees and turn to the Lord and wait patiently for Him to answer?
