When the Lord saw that he turned aside to look, God called to him from the midst of the bush and said, “Moses, Moses!” And he said, “Here I am.” Then He said, “Do not come near here; remove your sandals from your feet, for the place on which you are standing is holy ground.”
I usually begin these devotionals with a relatable story, but that is not the case this Monday morning. In fact I am writing this on late Sunday evening under the burden that the Spirit has laid on my heart. It begins with what is a regular practice of mine, enjoying consecrated songs on YouTube – mainly traditional hymns and choruses. On Sunday I found myself listening to Holy Ground in a beautiful medley at Whitewell Tabernacle Belfast, which touched my heart deeply. What a beautiful consecrated worship song it is!
It was written by Geron Davis in 1979, when he was nineteen. He wrote on the request of his father, a pastor, for the dedication of their newly refurbished church. It was later released to wide acclaim in 1983, and has been covered by many gospel singers and choirs as they praised God.
Dear reader, as my spirit joined in singing this beautiful song I became aware of The Spirit speaking inaudibly to me within: “that wherever we stand as children of God is holy ground.” Moses met God at the burning bush, which was holy ground because the Almighty was there. Moses was doing his everyday routine, that he had done many times before, and God met him in the mundane things of his life. Brethren believe me when I tell you that if you know and love God, and Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, the third member of the Godhead (The Holy Spirit) dwells within you, and around you. Wherever you stand is holy ground because of His presence with you! This morning pause and appreciate the presence of the Triune God with you in your Monday routine.
