Just when it seemed that all hope was lost for Moses to save his people, God showed up and changed everything.
In today’s lesson, we’re going to learn another story about Moses. Last time, we learned that Moses made a big mistake when he killed an Egyptian. Moses ran away after this happened. Moses ended up as a shepherd out in the wilderness. He was far from his life as a prince living in a palace. One day while he was tending his sheep, his whole life changed again. Off in the distance, he saw a bush on fire. As Moses walked closer, he noticed that the bush was not being burned up by the flames. It seemed weird and impossible! Well, then something more impossible happened- a voice spoke from the bush! Imagine Moses’ confusion. Who was talking to him? God was talking to him! God spoke to Moses. First, he told him to take off his shoes because he was standing on holy ground. That just meant Moses was in the presence of God and dirty sandals weren’t allowed. Then, he told Moses that he was sending him to save the Israelites from slavery in Egypt. Wait, how could Moses save the Israelites? He just ran away for killing an Egyptian. Well, God had a plan that seemed impossible to Moses. But, with God all things are possible! Kids, remember this in your own life. God can help you, too.
