LIFe with God: October 29-30

Posted on October 29, 2011

Scripture

Exodus 14-15

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What admonition did Moses give the people as Egypt’s army was bearing down on them (14:13-14)? How is the casualty count described (14:28-30)? What was the response of the Israelites and of Moses (14:31-15:1)

Application

Do I stand firm and wait quietly for God to intervene for me when facing impossible odds? Do I trust Him to provide complete and overwhelming victory? Do I praise Him and give Him all the glory?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:

Dear Lord, I confess that I am far too quick to complain and far to slow to offer You thanks, praise and worship. I am too quick to give in and give up, and too slow to stand firm and trust you. I am to quick to become discouraged and defeated, and too slow to believe You have already won the victory. And yet You love me and tenderly care for me anyway. Give me a heart that trusts totally on You and praises and glorifies You, regardless of the situation, In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.

Pray to BLESS!

  • B – BODY (physical health)
  • L – Labor (their job or school)
