Stand in Awe Outline

{ASH WEDNESDAY 2017} Stand in Awe Let the whole world fear the LORD, and let everyone stand in awe of Him. [Psalm 33:8] Lent is a season of fasting and renewal. When you fast (stop doing something), but you also replace it with something else—something beneficial to your relationship with Jesus. For this Lenten season, […]

A Mighty Hand

As God shares His plan with Moses, He lets Moses know that Pharaoh would not let the people go when he would make the request. Even though Moses was being sent to make this special request, the numerous requests would never work. It was the mighty hand of God that would cause Pharaoh to release […]

True Encounter

Could you look at God? Could you look right into His face? As Moses stands in the presence of God, facing the bush that would not be consumed by the fire, he hears someone speaking. The voice says that the ground ahead is holy; Moses had to remove his sandals. But this encounter does not […]

We don’t often feel compelled to do things for God. Most people think that God is supposed to do something for them. How many people pray, Lord what can I do through You today? How many people pray, asking the Lord for things? There is most likely a big difference. God doesn’t need us. God […]

Now Go

When reading Exodus 3-4, we find God calling Moses. Most people can remember the burning bush. Like all of us, God created Moses for a purpose. Moses was to lead God’s chosen people out of Egypt. In 3:10, after Moses answers God with “Here I am” and hears of God’s concern for His people and […]
