A Holy Place

Today is a holy day.

You are standing in holy place. This is a sacred moment. You are, right now, at a moment, in a place, in a space, that is holy.

How can this be so? You may be reading this on your phone at work. You may be reading this at your home. You may be reading this in a place that you may not consider “holy.”

How can this place be holy? This is just a place. It’s not church. It’s not a place of significance. It’s just a place.


It’s holy. Why? Because God is here. If God is here, then any place is holy. No matter where it is.

Look at what happens to Moses today in Exodus 3:2-6:

And the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush. He looked, and behold, the bush was burning, yet it was not consumed. And Moses said, “I will turn aside to see this great sight, why the bush is not burned.” When the Lord saw that he turned aside to see, God called to him out of the bush, “Moses, Moses!” And he said, “Here I am.” Then he said, “Do not come near; take your sandals off your feet, for the place on which you are standing is holy ground.” And he said, “I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.” And Moses hid his face, for he was afraid to look at God.

urlThere he is, tending his sheep, minding his business. And he sees it. He sees a bush burning, but it is not consumed. He sees that something is happening. Something is different. Something is not as it should be.

So he goes to look. And what does he find? He finds the Lord. He finds that the Lord is there, that He is calling him, and that God has a mission for him.

God is there. So, since God is there, this place is holy. Even through it’s not church. Even through its plain. Even through there is nothing “holy” there, this place is holy.

Because God is there.

So is this moment in your life. So is this place where you are reading. So is this time. It’s holy. Why? Because God is here. Because God is with you. Because God will not forsake you.

This is a holy place. God is here. God is present. God is with you. God has not forgotten or forsaken. God is with you.

And will be. Through the Holy Spirit that lives in you and through you, as believer, God is present and with you. Never forget. Today, this moment, it holy.

Every moment, it is Holy.

God is here. That’s all that matters!
