Spiritual Flashpoint

WHERE IS YOUR SPIRITUAL FLASHPOINT?

Exodus 3 :11 –But Moses said to God, "Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?"

How much to you trust God with your future plans? Or better yet how much do you trust God at all?

God offers us his resources, just as he did to Moses. We should not hide behind our inadequacies, as Moses did, but look beyond ourselves to the great resources available. Then we can allow God to use our unique contributions. We need to stop waiting for God to do what God is waiting for you to do. God doesn’t want your comfort to increase; he wants your character to grow.

The spiritual life is about surrender instead of control, and repentance rather than being stubborn. What’s your excuse today? Your past? Moses had one. Your future? He was living one out that he despised as a prince.

Often, we miss spiritual “FLASHPOINTS” because we are afraid or declare ourselves unworthy. We buy into the false belief that God can use us only on the basis of our qualifications, rather than in “spite of our weaknesses.”

FLASHPOINTS PREPARE YOU FOR THE JOURNEY. When Moses had his “FLASHPOINT” God laid out the road ahead, but the path did not lead downhill (or easy roads). God parted the waters at the Red Sea, but only after Moses and the people recognized the only way anyone was going to survive this journey was with divine intervention. I think Moses knew that standing barefooted next to a burning bush.

All spiritual flashpoints have this kind of spiritual impact-they change us from the inside out!

They are fueled by God.

They are seen by men.

They are a necessity of every Christians journey

They are always consuming of the bush they encounter.

When will you stop saying why me and starting following God direction for your life? Moses finally did, and the benefit was enormous. Yours will be too. So, ask God for your burning bush experience it will be a spiritual flashpoint you’ll never forget.
