The challenge: To write daily words of encouragement from the systematic reading of the Word to encourage us to keep moving forward. Written in the context of 45 minutes a day
ya it was mostly about having faith and trusting in God. Like the people in exodus should have done.
When these occasions happen, what I think is the most difficult thing to do is not to aknowledge that God intended for us to be there, but it's to ask Him: What do I do next?. Not doing it by our own strenght, but really seeking His will.
I listened to it... when are the Israelites ever going to learn? I wonder many awesome things they've seen and still complained and doubted.... "Oh, it was just a run-of-the-mill sea parting... nothing special..."it sad to think of all the children that died at the hands of the Egyptions...
How far are we willing to go its like God saying jump of a cliff but you dont want to and then when you actually do it you fall in to a big fluffy cloud abd you here god say "See I told you to trust me" and you know that you safe in hid arms
I think we should always trust God no matter what. The Isrealites rarly trusted him. I listened to it.
Today i am not so sure what to writte as a comment,besides that God did take care of the Israelites, after they had had left Egypt even if they did not have a lot of faith on Him at first.
I've always thought that the Israelites always complained and never learned, but ... I guess I never thought of them being *children* when it came to the relationship with the Lord. Know I'll remember that they didn't learn yet, and forgive them for their complaining. It's very sad though, the Egyptians killing all those babies. I wonder how it happened ... I mean, Joseph brought his family into Egypt during the famine that hit the country, then, the next thing we know, *BOOM* they're in slavery! I wonder if one of them made the ruler made or something. Anyway, the devotions really made me think ...
I agree with Audrey, sometiems it isnt the acknowledging part, its the asking what to do next part. One thing is for sure, the Egyptians most definately did not treat the Israelites all to well. Its very sad what the Egyptians did, killing the babies and all. Makes you wanna smack someone. I find it kinda odd that even after seeing all those miracles and what not that God did, they STILL doubted Him. (Though I have to admit, I too would be rather un-nerved if faced by an army while I am un-armed and have my back to the sea.)
I thing :that if the Israelites had trust in God thing would go in and onther way than this one,for them.And also that we should put our faith in God.
i still think it would of been hard for the israelites to trust God and all but I agree with rachel like they see all those miracles and they still don't trust in him, and I feel bad for all the people that had to lose their children..I wonder if they made them watch them throw the babies into the Nile.
