Day 15: Graced For Life




You SEE it.

It is engulfed in flames,

yet it isn't burning.

And then you hear a voice

calling your name.

And it is coming from the bush.

What do you do?

I think I would pass out or run the other way.

But MOSES did not~

 And Moses said, “I will turn aside to see this great sight,

why the bush is not burned”.*

And then MOSES heard the VOICE~

"When the LORD saw that he turned aside to see,

 GOD called to him out of the bush, 'Moses, Moses!'...*

And MOSES did not pass out.

And MOSES didn't run the other way.

He responded~

 “Here I am.”*

Can you picture it.

I get chills running down my spine.

As I wish I could experience the

talking burning bush,

that GOD uses to call my name.

And it is just me and HIM.

Oh to be in the PRESENCE OF THE LORD.

For when GOD asks you to remove your shoes,

you would remove your shoes,

“Do not come near; take your sandals off your feet, for the place on which you are standing is holy ground.”*

IMMEDIATE OBEDIENCE.

To do what GOD INVITES you to do,

and you IMMEDIATELY do it

because it is GOD.

You open HIS WORD.

And you HEAR HIS VOICE

speaking right to your heart.

You look to the left.

You look to the right.

And you wonder if GOD is really SPEAKING to you.

How can GOD stop to SPEAK to you?

Why would GOD SPEAK to you?

But then,

WHY NOT?

Do you respond like MOSES~

"And Moses hid his face, for he was afraid to look at GOD" *(Exodus 3).

Is GOD too HOLY for you to look at HIM?

Oh YES,

but GOD did something about that.

HE sends

 HIS SON,

HIS GIFT OF GRACE,

for you, and me, and everyone else.

Is JESUS too HOLY for you to RECEIVE HIM?

Oh HE is beyond HOLY,

as to why HE wasn't wearing HIS shoes

and nothing else much,

when HE called your name,

but not from a burning bush

but a bloody cross.

And oh how if I heard my name coming from

THE CROSS,

how I would fall flat on my face

and weep uncontrollably,

as to

who am I that JESUS

would go to such great lengths

to provide

THE WAY

into a RELATIONSHIP

with

GOD,

who

showed up in

a burning bush

to MOSES.

Because that is what LOVE does.

Where am I going with this?

Well GOD brought the burning bush to me this morning,

to remind me that I get to come into

 HIS PRESENCE

at any given moment,

because of HIS SON,

who INVITED me long ago,

calling my name

to

COME TO HIM.

Was I worthy?

Oh no.

And that is why HE CALLED me.

An INVITATION to

be covered completely with

HIS FORGIVENESS,

IMMEDIATELY!

Oh the FREE GIFT OF FORGIVENESS

just drips from the

 CROSS

for ONE AND ALL

to

RECEIVE.

So that

when GOD calls your name,

you can look at HIM with

THE ASSURANCE OF FAITH

that

HE wants to SEE you

&

HE wants to TALK to you.

Because that is what LOVE does.

You SEE it.

The burning bush.

It is found in

THE BIBLE.

You OPEN it.

And then it happens.

You are standing on HOLY GROUND,

for GOD is INVITING you into a

conversation

that once you start it

you will never be the same.

Are you worthy?

Oh no way, and that is why

it is called

GRACE. 

Do you need GRACE?

Do you need to give GRACE?

Will you FAST from whatever is keeping you from

RECEIVING GRACE

and

GIVING GRACE

by taking off your shoes

and sit in

HIS PRESENCE

and have a

ONE on ONE

with the ONE

who knows your hame

because

HE wants to be with you

forever and ever.

And that my friend is

why

they

"CALL IT GRACE"

(listen to the song below)
