Wisdom Moses God Jesus Old Testament

Nothing Hinders

Read Proverbs 4 today!

Does it ever seem like there is a lack of awe for God in today’s world?  Well, I know that I tend to see it around me and in myself.  If I truly grasp who God is and what He has done for me…  would I not approach Him first by bowing in reverence to His greatness?  Wouldn’t I find a way to make God greater in my life and not put such an emphasis on me?  Let’s take a look at some places where God was revered in the Bible.  What can we do to get back to a place of awe with the Lord?

1.  A man or woman of wisdom let’s nothing hinder their relationship with the Lord!

Moses and the Burning Bush (Exodus 3)

Moses saw a strange sight out in the middle of the desert.  He saw that there was a bush on fire but it was not burning up.  He approached it to find out what this strange sight was all about.  As he approached these are the words he heard from God.  “Do not come any closer,” God said “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground (Exodus 3:5).”  This command prevented Moses from rashly approaching God’s presence.

The land that was just moments before ordinary and used for ordinary things, became holy ground because the Lord was present.  The Lord did not reveal who He was until Moses responded with reverence.  After Moses removed his shoes, God had these words to say… “I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob (Exodus 3:6).”  I believe that God so often wants to reveal Himself to us, but there is something standing in the way.  What do Moses’ shoes represent in your life?  What must you let go of before you can fully enter into the presence of God?

Dear Father God, I pray that I will throw off anything that hinders me from fully approaching Your throne and Your presence.  May I have a reverence for Your Word that never fades.  May my heart be right before You!  Please show me where I have not given full honor to You and help me to increase in my awe of Your greatness!  May my fear of You truly be the beginning of wisdom in my life!

Searching after the things of God,
