Day 4: Moses Doubts Again
Have you ever seen God accomplish amazing things? Assuming the answer is yes, consider this: Have you ever doubted God even though you’ve seen Him accomplish amazing things? If so, then the story of Moses is one that should resonate with you.
At this point in the story of Moses, he has seen God work in profound ways. Moses had first experienced the presence of God on a mountain in the form of a wildfire. Then Moses experienced the power of God by turning his staff into a snake. He then witnessed the strength of God through various plagues that God sent upon Egypt.
After Pharaoh released the people of Israel, Moses crossed through a body of water on dry ground, with the Egyptian Army pummeled by the same waters. He then experienced the presence of God in the form of cloud and fire. If you read through the entire story from start to finish, you’ll see that Moses had no reason to doubt God. But despite everything he had seen God accomplish around Him (and within him), Moses still had doubts.
As you read today, consider this: Think back through all of the readings from this week: How did Moses respond to the challenges he experienced?

Would you have responded any differently a year ago? 5 years ago? 10 years ago?

Heavenly Father, even though the life Moses lived is very different than my own, I’m encouraged to know that I am not alone in my doubts. I’m encouraged to know that somebody who accomplished such great things still struggled with doubts.
But even though I do struggle with some doubts, I pray that You will continue to reveal to me the purpose and plans You have for my life, and that I won’t run from Your purposes, but will instead continue to embrace them. I pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
