“And [God] said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground.” (Exodus 3: 5)
Do you realize where you are? Have you recognized the significance of this moment, this place, this sacred space in your life? Moses wasn’t the only one to stand on holy ground, in the presence of God’s mission and His promise.
You and I have a significant purpose to fulfill and to do so we may need to get a better sense of reverence about it. This doesn’t mean our calling is one which is daunting or fearful. What it does mean is that we must enter into each moment with a proper awe that God Himself is there, that His glorious goodness has prepared that moment for us and has readied us to walk forward into it.
We leave our shoes behind. We put off our material trappings, our limitations, our burdens, our disbelief, our excuses, and step into Life with purity and innocence. The holy ground is one that requires your humility, your most genuine self, your willingness, and your grateful awareness of God and His powerful goodness.
Know where you are and treat your life and your unique purpose with due respect. The place where you stand is holy because God is there, and because you are the glorious and perfect evidence of that fact!
