Exodus for Lent: Week 3, Wednesday

Read: Exodus 13:17-22


Reflect: The Israelites are prepared for battle. They know better than to trust Pharaoh. But God knows the people are weak and vulnerable, so He gives them some time to breathe and recover, to get used to being free of Egypt. He leads them clearly, day and night. Have you ever felt blessed by an unexpected respite in times of trouble, a breathing space to gather your strength and see God’s path clearly? Did that respite help you trust God’s path for you?


Write: Privately or here in the comments.


Recite: Psalm 9:9-10 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.

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
