Exodus 3:2 “There the angel of the Lord appeared to him in flames of fire from within a bush. Moses saw that though the bush was on fire it did not burn up.”
God used a burning bush to get Moses’ attention. God chose Moses to lead Israel out of bondage. God saw how his people were being held slaves. He promised Moses he would be with him.
Father, grant me that peace that passes understanding, that peace you promise in your Word. I want to have that peace when everything seems hopeless. The peace that trusts you no matter what is going on in my life. When I have that peace, I have joy. A peace confirming that nothing can destroy the love and faith I have in you. Thank you for your promise that tells me you will never leave me or forsake me.
I delight in your Word. It is truth, it fills me with wisdom. It reveals your love for me. You shield me from harm, I feel protected. You hear me when I call in distress. Your mercy and compassion never fail me.
When I surrendered my life to you, I became your child. You have set me apart, I am yours, body, soul and mind. My sin nature is still a part of me. The thought that I still sin and offend you drives me to confession. I am forgiven, you restore my peace and joy. That is what the cross accomplished. Your blood covers me, I am pronounced not guilty.
Why am I anxious? Your Word says “Be anxious for nothing but in everything let your requests be known
to God”. As I pray, Lord, free me from my anxious thoughts. Let the knowledge that I am your child, that even if I am considered a failure in the eyes of the world—I am still your child. Nothing can ever take that from me. Having control over everything and focusing on myself increases my anxiety. Let my goal in life be living for you, Lord, and to focus on others rather than myself.
