Scripture: Exodus 3:3-5
3 Then Moses said, “I will now turn aside and see this great sight, why the bush does not burn.”
4 So when the Lord saw that he turned aside to look, God called to him from the midst of the bush and said, “Moses, Moses!”
And he said, “Here I am.”
5 Then He said, “Do not draw near this place. Take your sandals off your feet, for the place where you stand is holy ground.” 6 Moreover He said, “I am the God of your father—the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.” And Moses hid his face, for he was afraid to look upon God.

Have you ever thought, I would love to stand before God? I would love to stand in God's presence. It might be a little bit more of an experience than you think it is. In Exodus chapter three, Moses comes near the burning bush and the bush is on fire, but it's not being consumed. And the voice comes to him from the midst of the bush and the Lord speaks to him. He tells him to take off his sandals for the place where he's standing is holy ground and Moses will fall flat and will turn his face away from the voice of the Lord. Why? Because the presence of God is an awesome... And scary place to be. Be careful what you ask for. Someday, you just might get it.
