Higher Places In GOD Through Solitude

Exodus: 3:1-3

1 Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father in law, the priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the backside of the desert, and came to the mountain of God, even to Horeb.

2 And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.

3 And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt.

Moses who was once prince of Egypt found himself in a desert looking after sheep. The desert was hot and the sheep didn’t smell too good. He had likely experienced all the pleasures of royalty in Egypt. Do you think Moses felt disappointment of all his great loss? Actually, he didn’t.

Hebrews 11:24-25

24 By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter;

25 Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;

It was only when Moses came to a place of maturity that he realized that there is more to life than materialism.

While Moses was in a place of solitude, the LORD was able to get his attention by the use of a burning bush and call him to a higher purpose. John the Baptist also was perfected for his ministry while in the wilderness and heard from the LORD (Mark 1:3).

Sometimes our expectations of where we would be at certain times of our life don’t pan out as we expect. Instead, we find ourselves in what seems like a wilderness where we sometimes can feel alone. Wherever you may find yourself, GOD can give you your own burning bush experience that can cause you to have a deeper relationship and ministry for GOD than ever before. The time of solitude the world is experiencing at this moment could be ordained of the LORD for people who are looking unto the hills from whence cometh their help, (Psalm 121:1) to have a burning bush type of experience and go higher in HIM.
