Exodus 2 — 03-16-15

by Bruce on March 15, 2015

1 Chapter a Day’s take

The verse that was meaningful to me today was:

23 Many years later, Egypt’s king died. The Israelites continued to moan because of their bondage, and they cried out to be rescued from their oppression. Their cry for help ascended to God. 24 He heard their pleas and remembered the covenant He made with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. 25 God saw the situation the people of Israel were in, and He was moved to take action.

In verse 23, the Israelites continued to moan–so we know that they had been griping and moaning about their bondage for awhile. But what caused God to take action? When they cried out to be rescued. It doesn’t say that they calmly asked, but that they cried out. They were serious about their request! The key to freedom from an oppressive situation is to cry out to God for help.

Exodus 1 — 03-11-15

1 Chapter a Day’s take

The verse that was meaningful to me today was:

17 But the midwives respected God more than they feared Pharaoh, so they did not carry out the Egyptian king’s command. Instead, they let all the boys live.

21 Because the midwives respected God, He blessed them with families of their own.

The midwives were told by Pharoah to kill the Hebrew babies who were boys, but they did not. They did what was right and God blessed them. Most of us are not told by our employers or those in authority over us to kill someone, but we are sometimes pressured to do something that is either illegal or immoral and goes against God’s laws. If we do what is right, God will bless us as He did the midwives. It might not seem like things are working out well at first, but keep trusting God. He will bless you.

1 Chapter a Day’s take In Chapter 49, Jacob blesses his sons and tells what their futures hold–their long term futures. We see that his first three sons gave up the leadership role of the family by their behavior as young men. Judah, the fourth son, was the one who was given that role instead, […]
