God Calls Moses & Moses Gives Various Excuses
Moses heard God through the burning bush. He still speaks to us and confirms it through prayer, the bible and others.
- At one point did the Lord actually speak from the burning bush? Have you ever thought how God might wait until you turn aside to look at what He is doing before He speaks to you? Can you think of any “burning bush” moments in your life?
- What do you learn about God in this chapter? How do you think this event changed Moses’ relationship with God for the rest of His life?
- What excuses does Moses give God? How does God answer him? Can you think of a time when you were asked to do something and you gave excuses rather than just obeyed?
- What was in the hand of Moses that God often used (be watching for it in the upcoming readings) to demonstrate His power? What strengths or abilities has God given you that He wants to use to show His power to others?
