Scripture: ‘Moses spoke thus to the people of Israel, but they did not listen to Moses, because of their broken spirit and harsh slavery.’ Exodus 6:9
Observation: For the people of God held captive in Egypt is was difficult to believe that God was going to rescue them because they had witnessed no evidence or proof to convince them of what Moses & Aaron where telling them. Proof from many people is what often prevents them from making a decision to believe in God and in this instance it created a huge barrier in Moses & Aaron establishing credibility with the people.
Application: For people who are far from God having proof in their mind that God is real and that he cares for them is a true barrier for belief and we must do what we can to help eliminate that barrier so that they can begin to know and trust that God has a plan for their life.
Prayer: Father, I pray today for those who are far from God and are searching for answers and questioning whether to place their faith and trust in you but for whatever reason they are hesitant because life circumstances are preventing them from trusting you completely. I pray that you would revel yourself to be true in their life and that people would place their whole trust in you. Amen.
