Day 3: Moses’s Obedience
Take just a moment to think about somebody you know who is regularly looking for ways in which God is already at work so they can join Him in it. Do you think they ever struggle with their own doubts or fears? Do you think they ever wonder if they’re actually doing what they’re supposed to be doing? Do you think they experience trials? The answer, of course, is a resounding yes. Everybody struggles with these thoughts from time to time.
At this time in the story of Moses, he had seen and experienced God doing a lot of miraculous things. Now he was leading an entire nation of people out of Egypt, but there was a huge obstacle in the way – a great sea on one side, and a furious Egyptian army prepared for battle on the other.
As the people began to panic, Moses remembered everything God had accomplished. He turns to the people and shares a truth that helped calm their fears. He said, “The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.” (Exodus 14:14).
As you read today, consider this: What problems was Moses facing? How do you think he felt throughout these experiences?

Reflect: What did you H.E.A.R. from God today? HEAR Bible Study Method
Heavenly Father, I confess there are times in my life in which I don’t feel close or connected with You. There are times when I feel like I need to pray more, or read my Bible more, or do more of something else in order to be closer with You. But today I am reminded that the battle is Yours. You have fought for me. You are fighting for me. You will continue to fight for me. My role is simply to be still.
Today, my desire is take intentional time to be silent and to experience Your presence. May You speak to me in the quiet, and may I be refreshed and rejuvenated by meditating on the wonders of who You are. I pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
