Exodus 3:1 – 4:17; Jeremiah 29:10-13.

When Moses responded to what he saw, he found himself in the presence of God, heard the voice of God, and experienced a new move of God in his life. God set not only the life Moses in a new direction, but also those who he would lead.

Compassion, love, justice, mercy and grace were at the heart of all that God was doing. When Moses struggles to see that, and so doubted and felt uncertain, he experienced more of God through nurture, equipping, sustaining and promise.

During our time of transition as the people of God, we can hold onto God’s prefect timing and reassurance: “I know the plans I have for you”, declares the Lord, “Plans for your welfare and not your destruction; plans to give you hope and a future” (Jeremiah 29:11).
