Read: Exodus 5:22-6:9
Reflect: God’s ways are not our ways. The Israelites want to be set free, but God’s purpose is much greater than relief from bondage. The Israelites “would not listen…because of their broken spirit.” When we’re at our lowest, it’s hard to hear the words of comfort and hope others say. Has there been a time of broken spirit for you or someone you know? How did you or this other person learn to listen again to words of hope?

Recite: John 10:27-28 [Jesus said,] “My sheep hear my voice. I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish. No one will snatch them out of my hand.”
Pray: Redeeming Lord, Speak to me so that I may listen and be lead by your Word to eternal life in Christ. Amen.
