Exodus for Lent: Week 3, Friday

Read: Exodus 14:15-30; 15:20-21


Reflect: Israel is free of the tyranny of Egypt! God heard the people’s cries, told them He would save them, and did. This event becomes the touchstone of trust for Israel throughout the Old Testament. Whenever bad things happen to Israel, the people remember how God brought them out of Egypt. Do you have a personal Exodus moment, a time in your life when God saved you, when you learned to trust in God? Have you shared that testimony with others?


Write: Privately or here in the comments.


Recite: The Lord is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you. Psalm 9:9-10   


Pray: Heavenly Father, thank you for never giving up on me. Soften my heart that I may trust in you and never be separated from your love. Amen
