Fire


Read: ​Exodus 3:2-5, Exodus 13:17-22, Psalm 105

Have you ever had a full day... week... month when you felt like you were running like your hair was on fire? Life can become hectic. Our schedules can fill up quickly. When the heat of the world is on us, we need to look to God. Whatever tasks are on your to-do list, and however fast you run to keep up, focus your mind on the fire of God. He lights our paths and makes a way for us.

God appeared to Moses as fire in a burning bush, and He said, "Here am I." This was the beginning of a great journey of leadership for Moses. As educators, we also are in positions of leadership in our communities. God has put us in positions to positively influence the lives of our students, colleagues, and community members. You likely won't see a burning bush, but there will be times when you can feel God's spirit stirring in you, calling you. Do you recognize God's presence and influence in your life? Is he stirring in you a willingness to serve Him?

Another instance of God's fiery leadership was when God led the Israelites out of Egypt and through the wilderness as a pillar of a cloud by day and as a pillar of fire by night to light the way. Do you feel as though you are traveling through the night of the wilderness today? Are you seeking his light? Are you following His light?

God has a plan. If we follow where He leads us, we will reach our Heavenly home. When you find yourself feeling chased by worldly flames, seemingly running to keep up with your responsibilities in this life, look for God's fire. Set your mind on Him, and he will lead you toward peace (Galatians 6:6).

PRAYER: Thank you, God, for leading us with your light and illuminating a path for our salvation and peace. Please stir our hearts to follow your will. We honor you and seek the joy and peace that faith in your son brings to us. We serve you, praise you, and ask for these blessings in Christ's name. Amen.
