He is all I need
(the story of the exodus)
Exodus 3:1 The backside of the dessert
Moses most likely lived a peaceful life as a shepherd, for years he seemingly was no longer concerned with his brothers in Egypt or, like many of us felt that he could do nothing to help them.
Exodus 3:2-4 The burning bush (Moses turns toward God)
What does it take to make us "turn aside"?
As a Christian who has spent much time at all in Gods word, we know right from wrong according to the Bible, we know we're supposed to witness, we know we're supposed to pray, we know we're supposed to give to Gods work, etc, etc, etc... But many times we do none of these things. We occupy ourselves on the backside of the dessert and wind up years down the road looking back and saying why didn't I do more? Often when we try to serve God we turn aside in the wrong direction.
Psalm 40:4, Joshua 23:6-11, 2nd Timothy 4:2-4
What does it take to make us "turn aside" for the good, or the bad?
Exodus 3:5 Holy ground (How do we approach God?)
We act like God fits in our pocket sometimes, we pretend He isn't around so often and then when we need Him we just pull Him out of our pocket.
Exodus 3:6 A Godly fear
Exodus 3:7-10 God lays His plan forth
We all want our own tablets of stone with Gods exact plan for each of our lives, what we don't realize is that He has given us all the leadership we need in His word and the guidance of the Holy Spirit John 16:13
Exodus 3:11 The necessary attitude for a servant (Who am I?)
Psalm 8:4, John 3:30, James 4:14-15
Exodus 3:12-14 Who is God? (The I AM)
Who is God to you?
Psalm 61:3, Proverbs 18:10, Psalm 18:2, there are many names and characteristics of God in the Bible but the most amazing in my opinion is the name He gives Himself, the "I AM" Because He is, our everything we will ever need.
