Standing on Holy Ground

While watching after his father-in-law’s sheep, Moses came upon a curious sight.  A bush nearby appeared to be on fire.  So Moses went to get a better look.  When he did, God spoke to him from the bush.  The first command God gave to Moses was not to come any closer.  The second was for Moses to remove his sandals, because he was standing on holy ground. Finding a bush that looked like it was on fire but wasn’t being burned certainly made the place Moses stood unusual, but it was the presence of God that made the place holy. 

In Psalm 139 David asks, “Where can I go from your Spirit?  Where can I flee from your presence?”  His beautiful reply is this:  “If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.  If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.”  Whether you work today requires you to travel to the other side of the world or prevents you from setting foot outside the house, you remain in the presence of God, and the ground upon which you stand is always holy.
