Day Fourteen - 90 Day Bible Reading Challenge - Exodus 5 - 8 - The Great Adventure A Journey Through the Bible

Day Fourteen 
Exodus 5 - 8  

Bible Time Period:  Egypt and Exodus 
You freed your people from slavery in Egypt so they could worship you. Free me from sin so I can serve and worship.

In Exodus 4:23, God said to Pharaoh, “Let my son go [halak] that he may serve [obed] me.”  Now in 5:18, Pharaoh replies:  “Go[halak] now and work [obed].”  The battle here is not between Pharaoh and the Hebrew people but between Pharaoh and God.  Whose people are they? To whom do they owe service and worship?  Watch the interaction between God and Pharaoh as the drama unfolds.

Lord, your promise has always been that you would be with those who seek you and strive to live according to your will during our journey to eternity.  You never promised, however, that the journey would be without struggles and sufferings.  The struggles and sufferings of the Israelites under Egyptian bondage in Exodus, and your mighty works to bring them to salvation and freedom are a comfort to us in our daily journey as we struggle with our personal sin and our desire to be freed from all suffering.   Just  as you persevered to bring the Israelites out of Egypt, so too do you persevere with us, Lord, giving us strength when we are weak and resolve to make the right choices when we waver under the pressures of worldly wisdom. (Exodus Lesson 4 Agape Catholic Bible Study)
