So he looked and behold, the bush was burning with fire, but the bush was not consumed. (Exodus 3:2b)
Here the supernatural God enters into the lower natural creation and burns within a humble bramble bush without burning it up. Moses could not help but compare himself with that bush. Forty years earlier he had tried to burn for God and had just burned himself out. Now, at the end of his life, he discovered that God can burn in a man’s life—and not burn him out. God burned in him before Pharaoh’s court, marching through the Red Sea, and over the desert without burning him out. Such will He do with us if we allow Him.
