Moses is born and later flees to Midian.
God is sovereign in all the earth; we must never forget that. Much inner distress in life comes from losing sight of that one fact.
The same God who cared for Moses promises to care for us -- perhaps not as dramatically, but just as certainly. The peace that God promises -- the peace which surpasses all understanding (Philippians 4:7) -- is ours only if we embrace that fundamental truth.
· In full confidence of the sovereignty of God in your circumstances, give praise to God with this passage from the prophet Isaiah:
Have you not known?
Have you not heard?
Has it not been told you from the beginning?
Have you not understood from the foundations of the earth?
It is He who sits above the circle of the earth,
And its inhabitants are like grasshoppers,
Who stretches out the heavens like a curtain,
And spreads them out like a tent to dwell in
· Now pray this confession to the Lord as you come into His special presence:
For my iniquities have gone over my head;
Like a heavy burden they are too heavy for me
· Confess any sins that the Holy Spirit brings to your mind. As you agree with God's will, voice your affirmation of His Word:
But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (Ephesians 2:4).
· As you make your requests known to the Lord, pray for:
· God's sovereign will to be done on earth as it is in heaven,
· greater righteousness in your community,
· your prayer list.
· Now offer this prayer of worship to the Lord:
We give You thanks, O Lord God Almighty,
The One who is and who was and who is to come,
Because You have taken Your great power and reigned
