Bushes and Bare feet

My feet, my yard 

Exodus 3:1-6: 
“Now Moses was tending the flock of Jethro his father-in-law, the priest of Midian; and he led the flock to the back of the desert, and came to Horeb, the mountain of God. And the Angel of the LORD appeared to him in a flame of fire from the midst of a bush. So he looked, and behold, the bush was burning with fire; but the bush was not consumed. Then Moses said, “I will now turn aside and see this great sight, why the bush does not burn.” So when the LORD saw that he turned aside to look, God called to him from the midst of the bush and said, “Moses, Moses!” And he said, “Here I am.” Then He said, “Do not draw near this place. Take your sandals off your feet, for the place where you stand is holy ground.” Moreover He said, “I am the God of your father — the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.” And Moses hid his face, for he was afraid to look upon God.” (NKJV)


The true meaning of Christmas as G. K. Chesterton said: “In Jesus coming to earth we have not a good man finding his way to God, but the good God Himself finding His way to man.”

Daniel 7:1-14

Last Sunday, we saw how God exercised and still exercises His sovereignty in the affairs of men of all ages. We saw in the first six Chapters of the Book of Daniel how God allowed six moral conflicts to come through and how in each of those conflicts He won decisive victories over the enemies. We saw that in those conflicts, there was one principal participant – a man called Daniel and renamed Belteshazzar by the prince of the eunuchs. What made God use Daniel? Let us in an attempt to answer this question, do a little more study of the character of Daniel.

The Sovereignty of God Over the Affairs of Men in all Ages

God's sovereignty over affairs of men

Reading: Daniel 1-6.

As you read through the Scripture and particularly the Book of Daniel you cannot but see how intimately God can be associated with the affairs of men. If I must use this word, but not irreverently for want of any other one to use, God is seen to frequently “interfere” in the affairs of men in all ages. God truly is Sovereign and rules over all. No matter what man may say or do, no matter how we try to resist God’s sovereignty; He is still sovereign and His power is not limited.
