10 Alive Recap

Friends,

Sunday continuing our series on Moses, we discussed Exodus chapter fourteen.

“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. The Lord will fight for you; you need only be still.”

Why did the people complain?

Paul pointed out  they were afraid. They thought they were going to be killed by the Egyptians. We discussed how fickle the people appeared. God had delivered them from Egypt in a mighty way and now they were afraid God would abandon them.

 

Jack reminded us that we are no different. We complain when the going gets rough. Unlike the Hebrews, we have the Bible that records the exodus and all the other miracles God has performed. Yet when trouble comes we are afraid.

Human nature hasn’t changed much. Our natural tendency is to focus on our problem not our deliverer.

What do you think of Moses response?

“The Lord will fight for you; you need only be still.”

What is worrying you? What is the thing waking you up in the middle of the night? Did you hear the promise? The Lord will fight for you! Moses told the Hebrews “The Egyptians you see today you will never see again.” You can claim the same promise. “This ______ (you fill in the blank with what is causing you fear) you see today you will never see again.”

Do you believe that? You can. He who made the promise is faithful.

What did the Hebrews learn?

Chris said that the Hebrews learned God is greater than any problem. If we allow Him to He will accomplish His good and perfect will for our lives. He was telling the Hebrews “I love you. Nothing is going to get between you and me. And nothing is going to get in the way of my plan for you.” He is saying the same thing to us.

Next week chapter fifteen. Consider the following questions:

1) What thing most impressed you about the Song of Moses?

2) What is the message of the song?

3) How is the message of the song relevant to your life?

See you Sunday.

John

    The people probably complained because Moses was a terrible singer.
