We have completed an entire month – wow! I read a quote, can’t remember where: “Daily Bible reading keeps you within range of God’s voice”. Amen! Praying that is happening for you! Please read Exodus 1-2, 1 Chronicles 6:1-3, Exodus 3, Exodus 4:1-17.
“A new king came to power in Egypt who didn’t know Joseph” (Exodus 1:8 MSG). Now Jacob, Joseph, and their generations have died, but their descendants are still in Egypt. Even though the new king does not know their history (and what a blessing Joseph was to them in difficult times), God sees us and knows when it is time to act on our behalf. He never forgets His promises!
Thankfully God knows what we need before we need it. The children of Israel are going to have to be led out of Egyptian slavery, and they’ll need a leader. To this end, Moses is born. We’re going to spend a great deal of time with this guy!
Moses answered God, “But why me? What makes you think that I could ever go to Pharaoh and lead the children of Israel out of Egypt?”
“I’ll be with you,” God said. (Exodus 3:11-12 MSG)
