Read Exodus 1:1 through 4:31
As tragic world events unfold, people may feel deep hopelessness. They may wish God would miraculously intervene and stop human suffering. That’s exactly what happened in Exodus.
Reading the Book of Exodus can help renew hope and trust in God. Exodus records more miracles than any other Old Testament book. It reveals God’s power in action and His participation in the life of His people.
The Lord said: “I have indeed seen the misery of my people in Egypt. I have heard them crying out because of their slave drivers, and I am concerned about their suffering. So I have come down to rescue them from the hands of the Egyptians” (Exodus 3:7–8).
Jesus freed us from the slavery of sin and promised He and the Holy Spirit would be with His people. We must believe His promises and respond to His call to make a difference while trusting Him to take care of us as we do His work.
Prayer Suggestion: Holy Spirit, free me from my fears and sins; empower me to live a fuller life.
