Story of the day:  Standing on Holy Ground

     I often wonder how it would have been to be back in the days of Moses, when Moses heard God speak to him and say, “Moses, Moses!  Here I am.”  Hearing God’s voice and not knowing that where Moses was standing was holy ground.  Today, as the Holy Spirit resides in me, I too am standing on Holy ground. 

     “For Christians, every place they walk is, in a sense, holy ground.  We lose sight of the preciousness of our daily steps, that God hallows the ordinary that’s committed to Him.  Tourist who have visited Israel and have seen the places where Jesus walked often experience a sense of awe at being where Jesus was when He walked on earth.  Yet He lives today, and He still walks on earth–in our shoes.  Look around you, and see the holy ground on which you walk.” (Nick Harrison)

Quote of the day:  Richard Foster

“Do you remember Moses at the burning bush?  God had to tell him to take off his shoes–he didn’t know he was on holy ground.  And if we can just come to see that right where we are is holy ground–in our jobs and homes, with our co-workers and friends and families.  This is where we learn to pray.”

Bible verse of the day: Exodus 3:5

“Then He said, “Do not draw near this place.  Take your sandals off your feet, for the place where you stand is holy ground.”

Prayer:

Dear Heavenly Father,

Today as I take steps and follow You through my day, may I be humbled by the fact that where I go is, in a sense, like standing on holy ground.  May I recognize this in my job, with my co-workers, in my home, and with my family and friends.  I thank You for this blessed day!

In Jesus Name I pray,

Amen
