Many things are revealed in the way God has come forth to Moses. God comes to Moses in nature and the wilderness with a spectacular fiery image. A bush was inflamed but not burning. Would you be frightened? Would you run?
I can trust God when i put the flesh aside and live in the Spirit. The problem is many times i think I have it figured out and have a plan. I think i know best and what is right for me . Then God flips the script because his time is not our time. I know when I trust him his will is enough and is the best for me even if I don't see it immediately that way. Put all your trusts in the Lord and bring everything before him. Heavenly Father give me the grace to trust you unconditionally and assist me in putting my plan to the side. You know I love you and want to serve you. Please let your Will transform my life. I pray this in the powerful name of Jesus. Amen.
Like Abraham we have been chosen to be a new creation. God has chosen me to be the spouse, husband,dad and worker he wants me to be. God's will be done. God wants !me to live life to the fullest, but I can not do it by myself as I have failed countless times before. But through the infinite mercy of God he has made me a new creation through Jesus Christ. Heavenly Father through the power of the Holy Spirit bless my life to assist me in being the man you want me to be. I know that I am powerless and can not do it by myself. With your love, strength, power and might I can do all things. I pray this in the powerful name of Jesus.
