God's Purpose


Romans 13, Exodus 6:13 -20, Exodus 7-8

Exodus 7:17 – Thus says the LORD, “By this you shall know that I am the LORD.”

Lord God, you are always at work with purpose and intention.  Nothing happens accidently or without careful thought and planning on your part.  You were at work through the plagues and through all the signs and wonders to show Egypt, to show your people, to show Pharaoh, yes, even to show Moses and Aaron that you were God. That was your purpose and intention.  You are still the same today, Lord.  You haven’t changed in your purpose and intention.  Though the people, the places, and the circumstances are different, you are not.  You still are at work in my life to remind me, to teach me, to show me, even to redirect me back.  You want me to know that you are God.  And not just that.  You want me to believe in you and trust you with all your heart.  When pain comes, you are working to chip away at my heart and destroy any idols there, anything that I trust more than you.  When blessing comes, you are working to lead me to rejoice in all your gifts to me.  O God, you are good. You never want me to forget that you are my God and my Savior.  I pray, keep working on me to accomplish your purpose in my heart and through my life.  Amen.
