Turn Aside

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. The other day I was reading Exodus chapter 3. That’s where it describes Moses and his encounter with the burning bush. When Moses realized that the bush was not being consumed by the flames, he said, “I will turn aside and see this great sight.” Well, I was so touched by those few short words. Moses saw something amazing, something unusual and wonderful, and he stopped what he was doing to turn aside and investigate. I love that! Because you and I are burning bushes… bushes that do not burn up or burn out when trials come. And that should cause a skeptical world to stop what they’re doing and wonder, ask themselves, why is this person not consumed by his problems?! She’s so unusual, so amazing. And that gives us a chance to tell them why we’re not consumed… because Jesus is the source of our strength. Today, be that flaming bush.
