13Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. 14The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.” (Exodus 14:13-14 NIV)

 

EXODUS 13-16

DAY 114: JOURNEY THROUGH THE BIBLE IN A YEAR

Focus Verses For Today: Exodus 14:13-14

We continue our journey through with the Israelites in the desert being led by God. The Egyptians decided to pursue the Israelites, to capture them to keep them as slaves. As God prepares the way to the Promised Land the Israelites begin to rebel.

 

Take a some time to ask God for His understanding of Exodus 13-16. Read Exodus 13-16. Let’s journey!

 

Chapter 13, the Israelites are directed by God to consecrate their first born sons and sacrifice the first born male of the livestock. (Exodus 13:1-16) Moses takes Jospeh’s bones with him. God leads the Israelites; however, not using the most direct route. God leads them during the day in a pillar of clouds and gives light by night as a pillar of fire. (Exodus 13:17-22)

 

Chapter 14 , Pharaoh prepares his army to pursue and return to slavery the Israelites. The Israelites are terrified. Moses calms them. God parts the Red Sea for the Israelites to cross on dry land and returns it to its banks to consume the Egyptian army - every Egyptian solder that attempted to pursue the Israelites across the dried water bed died. (Exodus 14:1-31)

 

Chapter 15: The Songs of Moses and Miriam, songs of praise for deliverance from slavery and the Egyptian army. (Exodus 15:1-21) Stale water at Marah produces grumbling against Moses. Moses turns to God and the water is purified. Israel camps at Elim. (Exodus 15:22-27)

 

Chapter 16: God provides manna and quail for the Israelites to eat with conditions governing how much and when the manna and quail can be gathered. God’s conditions for gathering the manna and quail were violated by the Israelites. God was displeased. (Exodus 16:1-36)

 

Our focus verses for today:

 

13Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. 14The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.” (Exodus 14:13-14 NIV)

 

As the Israelites saw the dusk and heard the pounding hoofs of the horses of Egyptian army closing in on them, they were terrified. They had already forgotten what they had seen. They had already forgotten what they had saw. They had already forgotten their Deliverer. They had forgotten the God of Israel. Today is the first day after the most Holy Day that God has created for mankind, so on this first day after, reflect back on Resurrection Sunday (Easter) and take some time to thank God, thank Jesus His Only Son, for not forgetting you.
