Re: Verse reading–Exodus 5:1-2; 6:1-8; 7:1-5, 14-18; 8:1-3, 16, 20-21; 9:1-4, 8-9, 13-18, 25-26; 10:3-11, 21-22, 28-29; 11:1-5 (day five)
In the selected verses of Exodus 6, God makes several promises to His people through Moses. (Hint: look for “I Will” statements) I will: bring you out, deliver you, redeem you, take you for My people, be your God, bring you to the land, give it to you for a possession.
These promises indicate the great care, concern, strength, and power of the Lord. Can you imagine someone in whom you completely trust and depend making those kinds of promises to you? Maybe as a child or parent we have experienced or made promises that were not kept. Sometimes we can become “promise calloused”. Can you name any promises God has broken? Will you praise God today for specific promises He has kept?
What are promises God has made that shape courage and hope in your heart? (Look for “I Will” statements whenever you read the Scripture)
