DAILY DEVOTIONAL – Monday, June 27, 2016
Today’s scripture reading:
This “land flowing with milk and honey” is was a poetic word picture expressing the beauty and productivity of the Promised Land. (NLT)
Exodus 3:7-8 – Then the Lord told him, “You can be sure I have seen the misery of my people in Egypt. I have heard their cries for deliverance from their harsh slave drivers. Yes, I am aware of their suffering. So I have come to rescue them from the Egyptians and lead them out of Egypt into their own good and spacious land. It is a land flowing with milk and honey—the land where the Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites live.
Happy are those whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the Lord their God. –Psalm 146:5 (NRSV)
Richard Woodard (Washington, D.C.) titled his story “UNIMAGINABLE HELP;” here is a portion of Richard’s story:
“. . . But God sent Moses to proclaim God’s power and concern for the people. A seemingly hopeless situation was transformed by the unimaginable acts of God. . . .
“Sometimes situations in our own lives and the news from around the world can cause us to despair. But the unimaginable acts of God still break through seemingly hopeless situations. Through faith and prayer, we can call on our loving God to enter in and give us hope once more.”
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY – When we can’t see a way out, God offers help in unimaginable ways.
Prayer: Dear God, you have no limitations. When our imaginations and efforts reach their limits, give us courage to step out into the unknown – trusting in you to help us. Amen.
Prayer Focus: SOMEONE FACING A SEEMINGLY HOPELESS SITUATION
