Summary of Chapter
The main focus of this chapter has been the use of the rod as a picture of God’s involvement with the nation. All that was provided was from God, be it water or victory over one’s enemies. In the last case, the rod could be seen as an outward sign of inward praying.
I want us to pull together some of the applications of the last few study devotionals. We have been talking about prayer as focused on the Lord in the areas of praise and dependency. Now I want us to continue to focus on these same areas, but with the recognition of the necessity of a life typified by prayer. Remember, as soon as Moses let the rod down, the battle turned against the Hebrews. As soon as we let down in our prayer lives we frequently find ourselves getting in trouble.
What are some different ways that we can remind ourselves to work on our prayer lives this coming week?
“For you yourselves are fully aware that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night …
But you are not in darkness, brothers, for that day to surprise you like a thief. For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,
Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you” (1 Thessalonians 5:2, 4, 9, 16–18 ESV)
Exodus study to be continued.
