de Caussade: the present moment

Wednesday, June 6, 2018
    Commemoration of Ini Kopuria, Founder of the Melanesian Brotherhood, 1945
    There [on Mt. Horeb] the angel of the LORD appeared to him in flames of fire from within a bush. Moses saw that though the bush was on fire it did not burn up. So Moses thought, “I will go over and see this strange sight—why the bush does not burn up.”
    When the LORD saw that he had gone over to look, God called to him from within the bush, “Moses! Moses!”
    And Moses said, “Here I am.”
    “Do not come any closer,” God said. “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground.” Then he said, “I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob.” At this, Moses hid his face, because he was afraid to look at God.
    —Exodus 3:2-6 (NIV)
    The present moment always reveals the presence and the power of God.

    See also Ex. 3:2-6; Isa. 6:1-5; Luke 12:56; Rom. 13:11
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are present with Your people.
