Bait: When something is used to get/grab your attention or to capture you. (My emphasis lol/my definition)
The bait of God.
God often uses things to get our attention. If we take the bait, we walk right into His will. Let’s take a look at Moses. On what seemed like an usual day, Moses was tending to the flock of his father-in-law…
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. And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt. And when the Lord saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I.Exodus 3:2-4 KJV
I love that Moses said, “I will now turn aside, and see this great sight[…]”. I can just picture it, it was so crazy to see that he had to talk out loud to himself about what he was about to do 😆 Reading it can seem blah but think about if you saw a burning bush how you would react. I might have gathered the sheep and had a conversation with them(yep I would’ve talked to the flock)on how it was time to go lol. Thank God for Moses’ curiosity like characters in movies.
God set Moses up and Moses took the bait. What was about to happen next was about to change his WHOLE life! Ordinary would now turn into extra ordinary. When the Lord saw him taking the bait he called unto him!!! It was a set up for Moses to be introduced to another side of God and His plan for that season of his life.
In our ordinary lives God can put bait in our path to get our attention! In each stage/season of life He can introduce another side of Himself and His plan for this season of life. We may think we know God and His plan but we can’t forget that the God we serve is infinite! We can ALWAYS learn more of God and be introduced to another facet of Him! That is Exciting!
We have all been baited into salvation but dont be surprised in stages of life when you get baited again and the God you thought you knew and the life you thought you knew becomes holy ground for God to move mightily.
P.S. Keep reading in Exodus and imagine it as you read. God is amazing!
