In The Back of the Desert
A Season of Life When God Seems Far Away
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 (Exodus 3:1).
What life meanings can one take away from this Old Testament Bible passage?
First, what the reader of the next verse (Exodus 3:2) knows is not what Moses expects: “And an Angel of the Lord appeared to him in a flame of fire from the midst of the bush.”
God is like that to you and me: what He knows is not what we know about and expect from our lives.
God can reach you in the back of the desert. Know it. Expect it.
