The Lord grants rest to his people. He teaches us to be still and rest in his promises, his protection, his provision, and his finished work. Exodus 14:13-14
Our God hides behind masks. Much of the work that he does in our lives, he does from hiding, that is, from behind other people and the way that they work in our lives. This leaves us wondering at times: How do we know God is working? How do we know that God is watching? How do we know that God is listening? God's Word gives us the answer. Exodus 12:40-42.
God shows us in a dramatic way that he is the one we are to lean on.
There are some really big question in life that we often ask. Questions like: How do we know God is in it? How do we know God is leading us? How do we know we’re following? Moses wondered too and God assured him. We find hope and freedom in living our lives when we learn to find out to find God where he promises to be. Exodus 4:1-9
God calls us to serve in his kingdom and leaves no one standing idle. In so doing, he makes the unwilling willing and then uses us. Exodus 3-4.
The only thing that the people of Israel could hold was the blood. It was their only hope. If God looked at the people in the houses, they were dead. But when God looked at the blood of the house, they were safe, not even a dog would bark at them. Exodus 11-12.
God wants us in heaven and will do what it takes to get us there. Sometimes that means pain. And when he turns us back through pain, he hears us, remembers his promises and comes down to help. Exodus 2:23-25
