We’re back!! The Good Morning Girls and I are back… we’ve started on Exodus, and also this year we are colour coding.. so that has been an added challenge.
My “Spiritual Sunday” is a day late for a few reasons, which I apologize for..
A- I am still technically in “holiday mode” this will come to an abrupt halt in a few days (Wednesday) when the Bloke goes back to work. We have been in and out of the house and in and out of the holiday place and up and down the roads.
B- to be perfectly honest it’s been a struggle getting myself back into my routine, because “no alarm” meant I woke up when my eyes or a baby woke me up, So then depending on the time I didn’t have the usual luxury of the first hour with the Lord, It’s OK I discussed it with him and he’s OK as long as I get it done sometime during the day. One day I even resorted to doing my study in the car on the way somewhere it was the only “Quiet” time I got!
So this is the start of the second week and I a only getting to blog about the first week, I need to work more efficiently at this part of it.
This week’s Memorization Verse was:
Week One– Exodus One through Five.
Monday- Scripture- Exodus 1:15-17
“The King of Egypt said to the Hebrew midwives, whose names were Shiperah and Puah “When you are helping the Hebrew women during childbirth the delivery stool, if you see the baby is a boy, kill him, But if it is a girl, let her live.” The Midwives however, feared God and did not do as the King of Egypt had told them to do, they let the boys live”
- Go against that which you know to be immoral like the Midwives did.
- They feared God more than the King of Egypt.
Tuesday- Scripture- Exodus 2:1-3
“Now a man of the tribe of Levi married a Levite woman, and she became pregnant and gave birth to a son, When she saw that he was a fine child she hid him for three months, but when she could hide him no longer, she got a papyrus basket and coated it with tar and pitch. Then she placed the sleeping child in it and put it among the reeds along the bank of the Nile”
- God watches over those who fear his word and takes good care of them
- Moses never forgot where he came from despite where he was raised.
Wednesday- Scripture- Exodus 3:10-12
“So now go, I am sending you to Pharaoh to bring my people the Israelites out of Egypt.” But Moses said to God “Who am I that I should go to the Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?”And God said”I will be with you. And this will be a sign to you that it is I who have sent you; when you have brought the people out of Egypt, you will worship God on this Mountain”
- Anyone can do anything with the Lord to comfort and guide them
- God was with Moses on the journey, leading and coaching him along the way.
Thursday- Scripture- Exodus 4:29-31
“Moses and Aaron brought together all the elders of the Israelites and Aaron told them everything the Lord had said to Moses. He also performed the signs before the people and they believed. And when they heard that the Lord was concerned about them and had seen their misery, they bowed down and worshiped”
- If you are a believer of the Lord, then no matter what happens believe that God is watching over you and leading you through it.
- God has a reason for everything he does or doesn’t do it is our job to just believe.
Friday- Scripture- Exodus 5:22 &23
“Moses returned to the Lord and said “Why, Lord why have you brought trouble on these people? is this why you sent me? Ever since I went to Pharaoh to speak your name, he has brought trouble on the people, and you have nit rescued your people at all”
- We are to do as the Lord tells us, faithfully and without question,
- It doesn’t matter if it doesn’t make “sense” to us it is his will and we need to do it.
And here is my pretty colour coded bible! I was very happy with the colour chart method. Please join me next week for the next bit of the Saga of Exodus.
