The Light of Christ Journey

Encouraging people on their journey with Christ

The Living... — Exodus 14:13 (NIV) - Moses answered the people,...

Have you ever been afraid? I can remember being afraid of the dark when I was a little boy and had to go get something from one of our farm buildings when it was dark out. I can remember being lost once as a child and being afraid. Being afraid is a normal experience and shows us we need to rely on the Lord no matter the circumstance. Having a health concern can make you afraid of the future. The chaos of this world can cause fear of the future.

When we are afraid, we only need to cry out to God in prayer. The problem or circumstance may not go away, but we can be assured the Lord is with us. Many times, in those situations, the Lord gives us a peace that you cannot explain.

In our story of Moses, the people were afraid because they thought they were going to be killed by the Egyptian Army. They had seen 10 different miracles from God, but now they were not sure God would save them.

13 But Moses told the people, “Don’t be afraid. Just stand still and watch the Lord rescue you today. The Egyptians you see today will never be seen again. 14 The Lord himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.” [1] Exodus 14:13-14.

Don’t be afraid Moses said. Those may have sounded like hollow words. But Moses went on to explain, God will fight for you. Wow! How many frowns turned into smiles when Moses explained the character of God to the people.

Not only kids need reassurance. Each of us needs to be reminded and reassured that the Lord is with us and has not forgotten us. Our enemy, satan, likes to tell us God does not care or know about our problems. Those are just lies, and nothing could be further from the truth.

Do you need assurance today? Here are five Bible verses I have found helpful about being afraid.

  • Matthew 6:34 – “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.[2]
  • Joshua 1:9 – This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” [3]
  • Psalm 34:4I prayed to the Lord, and he answered me. He freed me from all my fears. [4]
  • Psalm 27:1 – The Lord is my light and my salvation— so why should I be afraid? The Lord is my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble? [5]

NLT Bible Verse su Twitter: ""Don't copy the behavior and customs ...

The Hebrews were told to leave Egypt by the Pharaoh and everything was going great. They were happy and filled with joy because God had rescued them from slavery. All that switched when the Pharaoh changed his mind and began to pursue the Hebrews. The Hebrews cried out to God and complained to Moses. It was easy to praise God when they were leaving Egypt, but now they were under pressure. Now things were not going well. Now following God was not easy.

Life is like toothpaste and when you are under pressure, what is on the inside comes out.

Exodus 14:10 As Pharaoh approached, the people of Israel looked up and panicked when they saw the Egyptians overtaking them. They cried out to the Lord, 11 and they said to Moses, “Why did you bring us out here to die in the wilderness? Weren’t there enough graves for us in Egypt? What have you done to us? Why did you make us leave Egypt? 12 Didn’t we tell you this would happen while we were still in Egypt? We said, ‘Leave us alone! Let us be slaves to the Egyptians. It’s better to be a slave in Egypt than a corpse in the wilderness!’ ” [1]

Jesus tells us in Luke 9:23, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must give up your own way, take up your cross daily, and follow me.[2] Following Jesus is not getting your own way. Following Jesus is not just when I feel like it. Following Jesus is giving up my will for the sake of building the Kingdom of God and it is a daily happening.

That is not easy, and we need God’s strength to help us pick up the cross. The good news is when we pick up the cross and follow Jesus, He opens doors to us in life we never thought were possible. Our heart begins to be transformed. We begin to live for others and not just for ourselves. Paul tells us in Romans 12:2, “Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.” [3]

Lord, help me to follow You no matter the circumstance. Help me, Heavenly Father, to rely on You when things become difficult and I want to run away. Jesus, thanks for walking with me and loving me. Pick me up when I fall. Thank you for the gift of forgiveness. Help me to take up the cross daily. Amen. Our ministry loves to connect with our readers.

The Bible on Twitter: "I call out to the Lord, and he answers me ...

In our story of Moses, the Pharaoh let the Hebrews leave Egypt after the tenth plague, but then changed his mind and chased after them. The Hebrews cried out to God because they thought they would die in the desert at the hands of the Egyptian army who was pursuing them.

Exodus 14:10 As Pharaoh approached, the people of Israel looked up and panicked when they saw the Egyptians overtaking them. They cried out to the Lord, 11 and they said to Moses, “Why did you bring us out here to die in the wilderness? Weren’t there enough graves for us in Egypt? What have you done to us? Why did you make us leave Egypt? 12 Didn’t we tell you this would happen while we were still in Egypt? We said, ‘Leave us alone! Let us be slaves to the Egyptians. It’s better to be a slave in Egypt than a corpse in the wilderness!’ ” [1]

The Lord heard the cries of His people and would supernaturally part the Red Sea for them to cross on dry ground. Then God destroyed the Egyptian Army by closing the sea on them as they followed.

We live in fallen world and sometimes tragic things happen or someone is in serious trouble or very ill. What do you do? When this happens, we need God’s assistance. As believers, we lean on the Almighty God, who is more than able to help, no matter what has happened to us. In tough times we can cry out to God and be sure our prayers are heard.

In the Bible, crying out refers to speaking audibly with great emotion concerning an urgent need. God invites us to use this form of prayer to communicate that we desperately need His mercy.

It takes both faith and humility to share our heart’s concern and cry out to God. Crying out is a way for God’s children to express trust in the Lord’s ability and willingness to help. By calling on Him with urgency, we also lay down our pride and any “do I on my own” attitude.  God’s Holy Word assures us that our Heavenly Father hears our cries and responds. In Psalm 3:4, for example, David wrote, Ps.3:4 I cried out to the Lord, and he answered me from his holy mountain.” [2]

When we call aloud for help in Jesus’ name, we invite His power into the situation. Remember that there is strength in just speaking His name. When we cry out to God, He may remove the problem immediately, but many times we may need to wait for His perfect timing. Harsh circumstances might even be allowed to remain for His good purposes. This is something that is hard to understand at the time. But we can always count on His comfort and presence, which enable us to live with joy and hope.

Are you desperate for God or praying for someone who is? Don’t hesitate to cry out to Him to help you in your present circumstance. 1 John 5: 14 And we are confident that he hears us whenever we ask for anything that pleases him. 15 And since we know he hears us when we make our requests, we also know that he will give us what we ask for.[3]

Exodus 14:4 (RSVCE) - Biblia.com | Exodus, Verse of the day, Bible

In the days of Moses, the people of Egypt were worshiping many false gods and God used the plagues to show who He was. Satan, our enemy, is a deceiver and blinds people to who God really is as the Apostle Paul writes in 2 Cor. 4:4.  Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God. [1]

The Lord sent the plagues to shake people out of their blindness. When Pharaoh and his army chased after the people, again the Lord demonstrated His power by allowing His people to cross the Red Sea on dry ground. Later, when the Egyptians attacked the Hebrews and followed them into the Red Sea, it closed and destroyed them.

Exodus 14:And once again I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, and he will chase after you. I have planned this in order to display my glory through Pharaoh and his whole army. After this the Egyptians will know that I am the Lord!” So the Israelites camped there as they were told. [2]

God went to great lengths to open the Egyptian hearts. He demonstrated that He was God and He alone should be worshiped.

I remember a mission trip to Honduras where we prayed for healing for a young man after a motorcycle accident. The Lord Jesus healed this man as he was being prayed for. He began to move his arm up and down and push it up into the air. Previously his arm was in a sling and was useless. It was a very moving experience to see God at work. This young man and many others who were there saw God at work. God’s demonstration of who He is caused them to place their faith in Jesus as their Savior. God had showed them that He was the true God.

How has the Lord revealed Himself to you? Was it through His Holy Word, the work of the Holy Spirit, during a worship experience, a time of prayer, through nature, or some other way that God chose? Take time to thank the Lord for this revelation. He reveals Himself so that we can place our faith in Jesus as Lord and Savior.

Dealing With A Hardened Heart | YP Life

The word “heart” is an important word any time it is used in the Bible. And it is especially important when it is used regarding our spiritual condition. When I have a hardened heart toward God, I am distant and cold toward the Lord and am not in a relationship with Him. A hardened heart is usually a stubborn heart and does not want to be molded by God. A hardened heart is a resistant heart to the good things the Lord wants to do in our lives. The Pharaoh in the story of Moses is repeatedly called a person whose heart is hardened toward God. His hard heart affects the whole nation of Egypt and the Hebrew people. In the worst case, a hardened heart paves the way for a person to reject the salvation won by Jesus on the cross. 

Exodus 14:And once again I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, and he will chase after you. I have planned this in order to display my glory through Pharaoh and his whole army. After this the Egyptians will know that I am the Lord!” So, the Israelites camped there as they were told. [1]

The main reason for a hard and unbelieving heart is not God. The cause of a hard heart is an unbelieving (depraved) heart that pushes back against the Lord. The unbeliever hates and so suppresses the truth that the Lord is trying to bring forward. Pharaoh refused to humble himself, even after seeing miracles from God. God’s creation is on display every day, yet there are people who hardened their hearts toward what God is showing them.

Romans 1:20 For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God. [2]

The good news is that we don’t have to have a hardened heart. We can choose not to. David writes in Psalm 51:10, “Create in me a clean heart, O God. Renew a loyal spirit within me.” [3]

We also learn about the Apostle Paul’s heart in Romans 1:9, “God knows how often I pray for you. Day and night I bring you and your needs in prayer to God, whom I serve with all my heart by spreading the Good News about his Son.[4] Paul yearned to serve God and this is reflected in his heart.

In the book of Acts, we learn about a woman who wanted a relationship with God and the Lord opened her heart.  Acts 16:13 On the Sabbath we went a little way outside the city to a riverbank, where we thought people would be meeting for prayer, and we sat down to speak with some women who had gathered there. 14 One of them was Lydia from Thyatira, a merchant of expensive purple cloth, who worshiped God. As she listened to us, the Lord opened her heart, and she accepted what Paul was saying. 15 She and her household were baptized.[5]

What about you as you read this? What is the Lord revealing about your heart? Take time to ask the Lord to mold your heart as it says in Isaiah 64:8. And yet, O Lord, you are our Father. We are the clay, and you are the potter. We all are formed by your hand.[6] Our ministry loves to connect with our readers. If you have a prayer request or a comment, please let us know.

GOD's impending judgement is great but Your mercies are greater O ...

As we go through life, we sometimes make bad choices and when we do there are consequences to those bad choices. At our children’s elementary school, detention time was called “choices.” The name tried to drive home the point that your actions are a choice.

In a spiritual sense, the Lord wants us to learn from our poor choices. We can confess our sins to God by admitting our wrongdoing and asking for forgiveness. We can also ask the Lord to give us the strength not to make that poor choice in the future.

In our story of Moses, the Pharaoh had made one bad choice after another. His bad choices not impacted him, but his entire nation. The Pharaoh could have humbled himself after the first plague and asked God to forgive him. He could have pointed the people of Egypt to God and changed an entire nation. He had the free will to do so, but he did not. He chose to harden his heart and suffer the consequences of one plague after another.

Exodus 12:29 And that night at midnight, the Lord struck down all the firstborn sons in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn son of Pharaoh, who sat on his throne, to the firstborn son of the prisoner in the dungeon. Even the firstborn of their livestock were killed. 30 Pharaoh and all his officials and all the people of Egypt woke up during the night, and loud wailing was heard throughout the land of Egypt. There was not a single house where someone had not died. [1]

How about you? Have you ever made a poor choice and suffered from it? Did God use it for good by turning you in a different direction? I have met people who at one time were drug addicts, but God transformed them. Now they are helping others who are drug addicts. God even uses our negative experiences.

In Luke 15:11-32, Jesus tells the story of the prodigal son who made some very poor choices, yet God used those bad choices to lead him back to his father. If you have made some poor choices, the Lord has not given up on you. As you listen to His still small voice, He is calling you back to Himself. Don’t forget the Lord loves you and wants the best for you! He is always there for us no matter how deep a pit we have dug for ourselves. He is just a prayer away. Our ministry loves to connect with our readers. If you have a prayer request or a comment, please let us know. Also, if this devotional helped you, please share it with others.

Being thankful is about remembering what someone has done for you. God calls us to be thankful for what He has done for us. After the Hebrews left Egypt, the Lord called them to celebrate Passover each year to remember and give thanks for what God had done. Science tells us that thankfulness changes our brain for the better.

Who doesn’t want to be around people that are thankful? People that are thankful are more pleasant to work with, they are encouraging, and see things in a more positive light. When we are not thankful, we can take others for granted and become more self-centered. Thankless people are not the type of people we like to spend time with.

Exodus 12:14 “This is a day to remember. Each year, from generation to generation, you must celebrate it as a special festival to the Lord. This is a law for all time. 15 For seven days the bread you eat must be made without yeast. On the first day of the festival, remove every trace of yeast from your homes. Anyone who eats bread made with yeast during the seven days of the festival will be cut off from the community of Israel. 16 On the first day of the festival and again on the seventh day, all the people must observe an official day for holy assembly. No work of any kind may be done on these days except in the preparation of food. 17 “Celebrate this Festival of Unleavened Bread, for it will remind you that I brought your forces out of the land of Egypt on this very day. This festival will be a permanent law for you; celebrate this day from generation to generation.[1]

Here are just four verses from the Bible about being thankful I find helpful in my own life.

  • 1 Thess. 5:18 –Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. [2]
  • Psalm 107:1 –Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever. [3]
  • Eph. 5:20 –And give thanks for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. [4]
  • James 1:17 – Whatever is good and perfect is a gift coming down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens. He never changes or casts a shifting shadow.[5]

Spend some time today praying and seeking the Lord. Remember what you are thankful for and how those experiences, things or people changed your life. I believe you do you will be amazed what the Lord brings to your heart.

Henry B. Eyring Quote: “The Lord protects, guides, and watches ...

It is a natural instinct for parents to protect their children. Our Lord is the model of protecting His children. Who are the children of God? The Lord tells us in John 1:12 But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, 13 who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God. [1]

God protects us through the work of angels. Hebrews 1:14 Therefore, angels are only servants—spirits sent to care for people who will inherit salvation. [2]  There is an ongoing battle in the unseen realm and angels are at work protecting us 24/7. They are there even when we are not aware of it.

The Lord protects His children by encouraging them along their spiritual journey. Psalm 23:Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me. [3]

The Lord tells us He is always with us. Matt. 28:20 Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”[4]

The Lord protects His children even in death, as we read in John 3:16. “For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.[5]

Have you ever stopped to contemplate how much the Lord protects you? As we open God’s Word, it is full of stories and verses about God’s supernatural protection. We see the Lord protecting His children in the story of Moses.

Exodus 12:11 “These are your instructions for eating this meal: Be fully dressed, wear your sandals, and carry your walking stick in your hand. Eat the meal with urgency, for this is the Lord’s Passover. 12 On that night I will pass through the land of Egypt and strike down every firstborn son and firstborn male animal in the land of Egypt. I will execute judgment against all the gods of Egypt, for I am the Lord! 13 But the blood on your doorposts will serve as a sign, marking the houses where you are staying. When I see the blood, I will pass over you. This plague of death will not touch you when I strike the land of Egypt. [6]

Today give thanks for the Lord’s protection and how He has supernaturally called you to faith. The blood of Jesus covers your sins.

If you have not invited Jesus into your heart as your Savior take time today in prayer.

Father, it is written in Your Word that if I confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in my heart that You have raised Him from the dead, I will be saved. Therefore, Father, I confess that Jesus is my Lord. I make Him Lord of my life right now. I believe in my heart that that You raised Jesus from the dead. I thank You for forgiving me all my sin. Jesus is my Lord, and I am a new creation. Old things have passed away; now all things become new in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Revive Thy People on Twitter: "Exodus 12:11 #sacrifice #Lamb ...

In the story of Passover, the Lord called the Hebrew people to be prepared to leave Egypt and He wasn’t speaking figuratively.

Exodus 12:11 “These are your instructions for eating this meal: Be fully dressed, wear your sandals, and carry your walking stick in your hand. Eat the meal with urgency, for this is the Lord’s Passover.[1]

The Lord had sent nine previous plagues on Egypt and still the Hebrew people remained slaves. This time would be different. God knew that after the tenth plague the Pharaoh would let the people go and they needed to be prepared to leave immediately. As they dressed and put on their sandals it was an act of obedience. They would physically be putting their faith into action.

As the story unfolds, they would be glad they were prepared to leave Egypt.

Exodus 12:28 So the people of Israel did just as the Lord had commanded through Moses and Aaron. 29 And that night at midnight, the Lord struck down all the firstborn sons in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn son of Pharaoh, who sat on his throne, to the firstborn son of the prisoner in the dungeon. Even the firstborn of their livestock were killed. 30 Pharaoh and all his officials and all the people of Egypt woke up during the night, and loud wailing was heard throughout the land of Egypt. There was not a single house where someone had not died. 31 Pharaoh sent for Moses and Aaron during the night. “Get out!” he ordered. “Leave my people—and take the rest of the Israelites with you! Go and worship the Lord as you have requested. 32 Take your flocks and herds, as you said, and be gone. Go, but bless me as you leave.”[2]

The Lord also calls us to be prepared today, but in a different way.

1 Peter 3:14 But even if you should suffer for righteousness’ sake, you will be blessed. Have no fear of them, nor be troubled, 15 but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect, 16 having a good conscience, so that, when you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ may be put to shame. 17 For it is better to suffer for doing good, if that should be God’s will, than for doing evil. [3]

How should I prepare myself? Grow in the word of God and prayer and rely on the Holy Spirit to guide you. When you do, you will be prepared. The key is going to God in prayer and asking Him to help you to be prepared. On our own we may not have that desire, but with God working in us, our hearts change. Our ministry loves to connect with our readers. If you have a prayer request or a comment, please let us know. Also, if this devotional helped you, please share it with others.

Holy Week - God's Unchanging Faithfulness | Immanuel Tours

We live in a world that is bombarded by falsehoods and half-truths. Our enemy satan is on a mission to deceive as many people as possible. He wants to lead them away from the Lord and into hell itself. When Eve fell into sin in Genesis three, she said she was deceived. Satan is a master of deception and has studied mankind for thousands of years and knows our weaknesses. Satan and his deceivers tell people over and over there are many ways to heaven.

Jesus tells us in John 14:6 three different things that are very important. I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.[1]

  • Jesus – I am the way. There is only one way to heaven and that is through Jesus. He is also described as the door or the gate. John 10:I am the door. If anyone enters by me, he will be saved and will go in and out and find pasture. [2]
  • Jesus – I am the truth. John 17:17 Make them holy by your truth; teach them your word, which is truth.[3]
  • Satan is a liar – John 8:44 For you are the children of your father the devil, and you love to do the evil things he does. He was a murderer from the beginning. He has always hated the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, it is consistent with his character; for he is a liar and the father of lies. [4]
  • In Jesus is life. John 10: 10 The thief’s (satan) purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My (Jesus) purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.

In our story of Moses, the door of the house played an important role in Passover.

Exodus 12:“Take special care of this chosen animal until the evening of the fourteenth day of this first month. Then the whole assembly of the community of Israel must slaughter their lamb or young goat at twilight. They are to take some of the blood and smear it on the sides and top of the doorframes of the houses where they eat the animal. That same night they must roast the meat over a fire and eat it along with bitter salad greens and bread made without yeast. Do not eat any of the meat raw or boiled in water. The whole animal—including the head, legs, and internal organs—must be roasted over a fire. 10 Do not leave any of it until the next morning. Burn whatever is not eaten before morning.

11 “These are your instructions for eating this meal: Be fully dressed, wear your sandals, and carry your walking stick in your hand. Eat the meal with urgency, for this is the Lord’s Passover. 12 On that night I will pass through the land of Egypt and strike down every firstborn son and firstborn male animal in the land of Egypt. I will execute judgment against all the gods of Egypt, for I am the Lord! 13 But the blood on your doorposts will serve as a sign, marking the houses where you are staying. When I see the blood, I will pass over you. This plague of death will not touch you when I strike the land of Egypt. [5]

Where was the blood to be placed? On the door frame. This is where the people would go in and out of the house. Also, they were not to leave the house on the night of Passover. To be safe they needed to go through the door and stay in the house.

Our ministry loves to connect with our readers. If you have a prayer request or a comment, please let us know. Also, if this devotional helped you, please share it with others. To come to faith, we must go through the door. That door is Jesus. Thank you, Jesus you made a way for us, to come to you!
