Today I encourage you to read Exodus 5 through 12. I know it’s a long passage to read but my post isn’t. Please look for and record any “Oh! Wow!” moments you discover even if I’ve not recorded them on this website. And If you have time please share them with me.
Response: “Oh! Wow!” Lord You brought the Israelites out of bondage.
Something to think about: Pharaoh was not a follower of the God of the Israelites. He didn’t fear their God either. Numerous times Moses was sent by God to ask Pharaoh to let them go worship their God. Each time Pharaoh would refuse to let them go God would send a plague. Each time Pharaoh’s heart would be harden. But then the last plague was sent. All Egyptian firstborns were killed. Then Pharaoh and all the Egyptians sent the Israelites away. But not before the Israelites asked the Egyptians for and were given silver, gold, and clothing.
Something to experience: There was a time in my life when I moaned and groaned because I had to live in Florida. I wasn’t even in bondage or given the task of making bricks as the Israelites were. The Israelites were in bondage to Egypt for 430 years (see Exodus 12:40). Are you complaining about where you live? If so, perhaps you and I both should show some gratitude.
Prayer: Lord I pray we will express gratitude to You for where we are right now (Ephesians 4:1, 5:10). I pray we will tell others of Your greatness (Psalm 145:6). I pray the way we live our life will please You. I pray we will pursue a life of purpose with gratitude to You for our salvation (I Thessalonians 4:1). I pray we will be content regardless of our circumstances; trusting You to take care of us (Philippians 4:11, I Timothy 4:4). Thank You for promising to be with us always (Hebrews 13:5). In Christ Jesus’ name I pray. AMEN.
I hope you visit again soon. May God be with you. I pray you will experience a God filled, oh! wow! day.
