Burning Bush | Devotion 5: Pass It On
“…This is my name forever, and thus I am to be remembered throughout all generations.” Exodus 3:15
Reading this chunk of Scripture over and over, I kept coming back to this verse. I realize that Moses is having one heck of an experience on Mt. Horeb. He was simply taking his father-in-laws sheep to be fed when all of a sudden, the Lord is speaking to him in a burning bush. God said, “Tell them I AM who I AM sent you.” Moses was in awe, terrified, and I guess his jaw dropped. But still this verse kept going through my mind, “…this is my name forever, and thus I am to be remembered throughout all generations.” It made me think. “What am I doing to make sure that the Lord is being remembered for generations to come?”
You see, I love moments or situations that the Lord uses me. I am amazed at the ways He teaches me. I enjoy that He gives me all of those God stories. But am I passing them on? Do I tell my kids about them? Do I share them with my friends and family? Normally I rush home and tell my husband. But is that where it stops?
I would hate for my kids to grow up and not remember the Lord because we never talked about Him and the ways He is working or moving in our home. Is the Lord something I make them just read about, or are we experiencing Him and talking about His works? I am intentional, so we can remember Him for generations to come.
I am a little way off from grandkids, but I want to be able to sit and talk with them about all of the ways I have seen the Lord be real in my life. How about you? What has the Lord done lately? Who do you need to share it with? It does not matter if it is big or small. I challenge you to share with someone today!
