Wild Goose Chase – Chapter 3

Mr. Batterson talks about when God came to Moses in the form of a burning bush. “God showed up. And an ordinary place – a bush on the backside of the desert – became holy ground. That seems to be the way the Holy spirit works, doesn’t it? He is predictably unpredictable. He loves to show up in wild places at wild times.” … “I think this is one of those stories in which the obvious can elude us. The holy ground wasn’t the Promised Land.

Mark Batterson is the author of this book (also of In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day). He nailed something right on the head when he wrote, “We try to make God fit within the confines of our cerebral cortex. We try to reduce the will of God to the logical limits of our left brain.
