Through this week's study of the book of Exodus we are able to see through the life of Moses, how God continuously draws us out to draw us in. We see how God's hand was providentially placed over Moses' life as he overcame many odds. From the improbability of survival for an infant traveling through the raging treacherous waters of the Nile, to the death sentence appointed by Pharaoh through an edict. The truth is that every act of man is serving the purpose of God. We must know that God often prepares us for the next chapter of life with the present chapter's experience. Also, understand that God is intimately aware of your agony and because God knows, God acts.
As we continue to learn how God draws us out to draw us in. We face an attribute of God which is sometimes hard to accept. We must realize that God does not spare His people (children) from harm and we learn dependence on God as we experience grace. Understanding that when we cannot trace God's hand, we must trust God's heart.
God has drawn us out so that he can draw us in. As we journey through the Book of Exodus we are striving to know God, understand God's redemption, understand God's mission and ours and draw lessons for living out our faith. While noticing that God always keeps His promise and His plan is always accomplished. We have a responsibility to acknowledge our limitations, read scripture honestly and remember the cross.
