completed reading on July 13th {checking them off one chapter at a time…slowly, but surely}.

“I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.” {Exodus 20:2}

my exodus summary: 

again I’d say i felt like i was reading a historic fiction book; but this time there was a burning bush, water turning to blood, plagues of insects, boils, hail and even the death of every first-born son. Which ultimately led to Moses leading the Israelites out of slavery in Egypt towards the promised land; hence the title, Exodus or ‘exit’ from Egypt.

A foreshadowing of God leading us out of spiritual slavery into new life in Christ. 

my favorite exodus story: 

Crossing the sea. “That day the Lord saved Israel from the hands of the Egyptians, and Israel saw the Egyptians lying dead on the shore. And when the Israelites saw the mighty hand of the Lord displayed against the Egyptians, the people feared the Lord and put their trust in hum and in Moses his servant.” {Exodus 14:30-31}

Now that’s a powerful story. And my pastor so kindly brought it down to my level and explained this story is a symbolic representation of a water baptism.

biggest take-a-way: 

God hears his people {Exodus 1-6}. God saves his people {Exodus 7-18}.

 

ps – i’ve been meaning to note that while making this website, i found a fun setting that made everything lowercase. i fell in love with it. so i kept it. but the downfall is absolutely everything has to be lowercase. so please excuse the lowercase ‘g’ in reference to god {as well as all the surnames and so on}. god is great and his names deserved to be praised {and capitalized, i’m still working on figuring out how to make it work with my settings…}.
