As you go through each day’s reading in our Chrolological Bible plan, a great excercise is to underline every thing God says about himself.
I have found this to increase my faith, give me hope in the One who loves me and it brings my personal worship and prayer time to a deeper place.
For example, from today’s reading in Exodus:
“I will hear”
“I am compassionate”
“I send an angel before you to guard you on the way and to bring you to the place I have prepared.”
“I will be an enemy to your enemies and an adversary to your adversaries.”
“the glory of the Lord was like a devouring fire on the top of the mountain…”
Those are just a few of the nuggets God speaks about Himself as He begins to reveal more and more of who He is to these wandering Israelites. He tells them these things while laying out His commandments that are sure to bring life.
And while He promises to BE these things to them, there is a call He makes to the people to “cry out,” and “obey my commands.”
The LORD indeed is good and faithful to all generations.
As you seek Him today in His Word and Truth may you remember the God you are crying out to is the same God of Isaac, Abraham and Jacob. The same God that brought a nation out of Israel. And He still hears you.
