“There the angel of the LORD appeared to him in a blazing fire from the middle of a bush. Moses stared in amazement. Though the bush was engulfed in flames, it didn’t burn up.”
Forty years had gone by, and Moses hadn’t heard a word from Heaven. Then suddenly one day, as he was watching his father-in-law’s sheep, God called to him from a burning bush.
He told Moses that He had seen the suffering of His people and had heard their cries. As a result, Moses’s new job was no longer tending sheep but delivering people. He was to go back to Egypt and demand the release of the Israelites.
Moses didn’t realize that during the 40 years he was tending those sheep, God was preparing him. He was showing Moses some things that would help him later.
