I came across a quote today in one of my old papers that I really like. I’m not sure where I read it, but I think it was from Eugene Peterson’s devotional called, Living the Message.

Here is what it says…

God spoke to Moses in a burning bush because (1) he was alone in the desert, and therefore God’s choices were either a bush, a burning lamb, or a flaming stone. In other words, God speaks to us when we are alone through the natural resources available. To Elijah it was the wind… to Joshua it was the Angel of the Lord… to Joseph it was a dream. And in the end, the means accomplished the purpose of communicating the message to the person in a manner that was unmistakably clear.
