Exodus 13:17-18 When Pharaoh let the people go, God did not lead them on the road through the Philistine country, though that was shorter. For God said, “If they face war, they might change their minds and return to Egypt.”
So God led the people around by the desert road toward the Red Sea. The Israelites went up out of Egypt ready for battle.
The Egyptians and all Israel saw the power of God. What He had promised to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob He now frees Israel from Egyptian bondage and sets them out to the promised land. God always remembers his people.
The world is increasing in sin and wickedness. I pray to never be a part of the evil that surrounds me. My hope is to have favor in your eyes. Help me to not get caught up in the pleasures of this world. I want to live in a deep, intimate relationship with you. Apart from you I am lost. My security rests only with you, my God and Savior.
I want you to be the center of my life, in everything I do, say or think. In my relationships, finances and every area of my life. Jesus, you are the only source of light. I know that living my life pleasing and honoring you will give me the best possible life while I am in this body on earth.
Thank you for the experiences I have had in my life. All of the abilities that I have you placed in me in my mother’s womb when you created me. You give me the knowledge and motivation to use these talents to serve you while I am here. Let me do all that you have planned for me, instruct me and guide me.
I lift up my heart to you, Lord, I know you are nearer than I can ever imagine. I know that you always listen when I pray. This gives me comfort when I am going through difficult times.
The foundation of my spiritual life is faith. As I read your Word it introduced me to Jesus. It gave me faith. Now my heart’s desire is to have a closer relationship with you. Lord, as I seek you increase my faith.
