Exodus is the fulfillment of God’s promise to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob that He would make them a great nation. God carries out His promise despite opposition of the greatest superpower in the world at the time, Egypt, and despite unbelief and disobedience of the descendants themselves, the people of Israel. Exodus is filled with powerful stories and familiar scenes: a burning bush, ten plagues unleashed by God on Egypt, the Ten Commandments, the origin of Passover, and the most marvelous movable tent in history. This 88-page devotion takes you through Exodus a chapter a day for forty days.
Comment. In our day, we need to fear God more than the government. These midwives may have risked their lives by disobeying the king. As Christians, we may have to do the same. As the culture changes, as government may persecute Christians, we need to fear God more than government or more than the culture we live in.
Prayer. Father, we look forward to the blessings You are going to have for us in the Book of Exodus. We thank You for this opening blessing right here that we are to fear You and not the commandments of men or the laws of our land. And we see when we stand firm in You, you blessed the midwives and You can bless us as well…We look forward to so many more life lessons.
