Life Applications from the Bible – Vol. 44
As I continue reading in the book of Exodus, I keep finding wonderful encouragement and life applications. I am so amazed how the entire Bible speaks so clearly to us. I hope you will join me as I continue reading about the Exodus.
- Exodus 9:6, 10, 25
- Pharaoh’s hardened heart brought about bad consequences for the entire country.
- If we are in any type of leadership position, we need to take it seriously. Every decision should be a matter of prayer, because what we do affects others.
- We need to be diligent in our research when electing officials at every level. Their decisions will affect us. We can only hope they make their decisions based on prayer as well.
- Ex. 10:1-2 – When Problems Occur
- The Lord works them out, and we get to witness it.
- We end up with a personal testimony to share so others can see what He has done as well.
- Our personal faith can grow.
- God gets the glory.
- Ex. 12:22b
- This was not just a frivolous restriction; it was an urgent life-saving measure.
- Many times people think that if they follow the Lord, they will have a lot of restrictions put on them. Looking back on my life, I can see where many of my mess-ups and painful experiences could have been avoided if I had followed His “restrictions.” They are not restrictions but protections – wrapped in love!
- Exodus 13:17
- The shortest route is not always the best way to go.
- The easiest route is not always the most beneficial.
- When things take longer than we think they should, and we don’t understand why we are encountering roadblocks in reaching our goals, remember that there is a reason. If our goals are God-given, we will get there in His time. He sees the overall picture and knows what is best and where we need protection.
