Becoming a Burning Bush
“I am raising up places and people that will be ‘burning bushes’ for Me. They will be places and people of ‘encounter’ for others!” The Lord often speaks to me through Biblical pictures and symbols, and as I was asking God for HIS purpose for the church that my husband and I pastor, He gave me this word and this picture.
When Moses encountered the burning bush, it was a turning point for him. His life CHANGED. He was commissioned with a PURPOSE to set God’s people free. He became a CARRIER of the fire that he had just encountered. The Lord is after a people whose lives have been so radically changed that they set others free. He desires burning ones that carry His fire everywhere they go.
I know your heart is crying out, “ME, LORD!” Here is what to do next:
Frequent places where people are burning with love and passion for God. Spend time with “fire-carriers” in the Spirit. We become like those we spend time with. Find those who are actively sharing the gospel and laying hands on the sick. Go to places where people are passionate for God and seeing miracles.
Spend time with God in the secret place. Moses turned aside to the burning bush. It is time to ‘turn aside.” Refuse to allow the distractions of life to get in the way of His presence.
Throw some “logs” on the fire! Pray in tongues! Meditate on the Word! Read and watch what stirs up the fire in you.
2Ti 1:6 For this reason let me remind you to rekindle God’s gift which is yours through the laying on of my hands.
Live with the awareness that you are one with Him, and that you are commissioned to carry His power and presence to those in need. Practice His presence in your life.
Refuse to receive fire without then giving it away. Actively give others an encounter with all He is. Lay hands on the sick and expect miracles. Do all with love and compassion.
Rom_15:19 (KJV) Through mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God; so that from Jerusalem, and round about unto Illyricum, I have fully preached the gospel of Christ.

REFUSE to simply “go through the motions.” One encounter with the living God flowing through YOU can set a person free or even turn a town upside-down.
I shared this vision of the Lord’s desire for people and places to become “burning bushes” for Him during a Thursday night meeting. As one small demonstration, a woman had an encounter with the Lord that set her free from depression and filled her with joy, peace, and love for her Savior. It only took one touch from Him. There was no deep ministry. There was one touch. We have had many others that have been set free, but this one was the confirmation of His Word to us.
A TURNAROUND FOR YOU..
A word by Dana Jarvis
I decree you are making the spiritual journey from the bondage of Egypt into your promised land of destiny. I know you have grown weary. Do not let the murmurings and complaining attitudes rule you. It causes the faith to waiver! Your focus is upon the cup of bitter waters that you are currently drinking from.
Rest assured that your God is making these bitter waters sweet!
You shall taste and see that the Lord is good! You are going to see such extravagance in your daily life. He is delivering much into your hands so reach up and take hold. Just as he was with you before, he is with you now. You are going to drink deep of the Living Waters. The bitter waters of life have tried to steal all joy.
However I hear the Lord say, “It is done, I am the Lord who heals you. I am the Lord who will restore you. I am the Lord who will provide your every need. I am the One that is making the bitter waters sweet!”
I feel so strongly that God is removing your cup of bitter waters you have had to drink for so long. He is causing a turnaround for you in a situation that you desperately need him to move. I am speaking to several and know this word is for you. Even as the Lord led Moses and the children of Israel from their bondage at the Red Sea, it still took one step of faith. One step of faith is all it takes to cause a release from all of this. Take a moment and sow into good ground by giving into Spirit Fuel. For just a contribution of $25, $50, or even $100 or more given into Spirit Fuel is an active step and good ground on which to sow. It is a powerful ministry reaching the world for Christ. As you sow that offering, it is that act of faith that will cause the Red Sea where you are standing to part in your life. The bitter cup will be removed and the sweetness of the Lord shall begin to flow!
