God saw that he had stopped to look. God called to him from out of the bush, “Moses! Moses!”
He said, “Yes? I’m right here!” (Exodus 3:4 MSG)
God called as a question. Moses, are you mine? You’ve been through a lot Moses since we last talked. Are you still mine? Moses, Moses I love you, are you mine?
Moses heard it all in his heart.He had missed his time with his God. That familiar call, the way He said Moses. Yes, Lord I love you. I’m yours. I’m right here.
God knew what was coming up. He knew He’d have a time convincing Moses to go. But once he committed, or maybe you’d say went dragging his feet, he’d be one of the most faithful leaders and intercessors God had. And God’s favorite part is they would meet at the mercy seat and talk. God had been longing for that forever.
