Two posts within a week. Don't pass out on me....(ok, my one reader...Shauna, don't pass out!) :-D
So 90 days. It equals roughly 12 pages a day. Yet I remembered VBS falls during this time, so I'm already trying to get ahead so I'm not whelmed, or overwhelmed, that week. It's been good so far. Not even a week in and I'm over half-way through Exodus. Here's a part of today's reading that I just love:
"Lord who is like You among the gods?
Who is like you, glorious in holiness, reverred with praises, performing wonders?
You stretched out your right hand, and the earth swallowed them.
You will lead the people You have redeemed with Your faithful love; You will guide [them] to Your holy dwelling with Your strength."
That's the God I believe in, have confidence in, love and serve. The Israelites had been crossing the Red Sea with the Egyptians in hot pursuit, but through God's protection and provision over His chosen, "...neither group came near the other all night long." (Ex. 14:20) Of course most we know the rest of the story in that none of the Egyptians survived to return home. Talk about a leader and defender Yahweh was to the Israelites! He was truly worthy of their praise at that point for all that He had done for them, yet their praise quickly turned to grumbling once again. I find myself in the same position. Realizing how truly worthy God is of my praise, adoration and worship, then quickly returning to grumbling and complaining about where God has me. No one is like Him. He has led me with faithful love. He has guided me His strength.
