One day Moses was tending the flock of his father-in-law, Jethro, the priest of Midian. He led the flock far into the wilderness and came to Sinai, the mountain of God. There the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a blazing fire from the middle of a bush. Moses stared in amazement. Though the bush was engulfed in flames, it didn’t burn up. Exodus 3:1-2 (NLT)
Listening to God is easier when God doesn’t have competition. We can better hear God when we are not distracted by work, friends, politics, entertainment, but instead have clear quiet minds to notice when God gives us “burning bush” moments. We won’t hear God unless He first has our attention.
