Moses was to lead God’s people out of Egypt and in doing so, he would become a shepherd of people rather than of sheep.
What are you expecting from this new year?
Are you expecting something new from God or the same old, same old?
God wants to do a new thing but will we look forward expectantly to joining him in his adventure or do we just want a quiet life?
Moses was never the same again and I hope and pray that 2017 would become a year of change and a real journey of faith for those of us who call ourselves followers of Jesus.
Moses met God because he went to see how a bush could be on fire without burning up. May we learn to look for signs of God at work and when we think we see them to go and to have a closer look so that we can join him in what he is doing.
