4 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.”
“The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous, and his ears are attentive to their cry;” Psalm 34:15.
God looks with love upon His own, and he is looking for our response to His overtures. Where are you aware of God calling to you at the moment and what is your response? I wonder, what would have happened if Moses had walked on by? If he had not changed direction and gone over to take a look? What might he (indeed what might the world) have missed if he had not gone across?
I think it was Dallas Willard who counselled a pastor, ‘You must ruthlessly eliminate hurry from your life.’ I often think about his wise words, while being acutely aware that it’s a hard thing to do. But I wonder how much I miss by being hurried and distracted? How about you?
Someone said God moves at walking pace!
PRAYER: Lord, help me to walk through life at your pace. May I not fail to see what you are doing or heed what you are saying because I am too much in a hurry.
