Heavenly Father, as I begin to understand Your amazing plan of salvation, which had to come through a perfect, sinless, kinsman-Redeemer, I begin to understand the incredible significance of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and the nation of Israel – for through them was to travel God’s promised human SEED, Who was to be born as the holy, eternal Son of God – into the race which He Himself created. Thank You that the Word was made flesh and dwelt amongst us and thank You that He died to pay the price for the redemption of the whole world. Thank You that Jesus rose again to give us new life – and thank You that He is my Redeemer, Who dwells in heaven and lives eternally in my heart. I pray for the nation of Israel, that they will one day come to national repentance, and cry out to HIM, Who comes in name of the Lord.. for salvation. This I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.

“And all the souls that came out of the loins of Jacob were seventy souls: for Joseph was in Egypt already.”

Heavenly Father, what a long period of training Moses had to undergo to be prepared for the work You destined to do in his life. At times I am so impetuous and want things done in my life immediately, and yet I realise You take time to call and train and fashion and hone Your servants in the things You have prepared for them to do. Develop that same patient spirit and humble heart I see in Moses, and remove from my character anything that dishonours Your holy name, this I pray in Jesus' name, AMEN.

Father I begin to understand that irrespective of how limited my ability or how boundless my talents, unless I am lead of You and speak the words You instruct I will be ineffective in my work for You.

Heavenly Father, it is most wonderful to realise that through the ten terrible plagues of Egypt, which caused such hardship for so many, we can trace Your long-suffering mercy towards fallen man and Your perfect plan of redemption for those that will listen to Your voice; obey Your instructions; turn from their wicked ways and believe on You. Thank You that in the past, as well as in this present time, it is not Your will that any should perish but that all should come to repentance - turn from their sin and trust in Christ for the forgiveness of sin.

Heavenly Father, there are times when I become astonished and even angry with Israel's lack of discernment and inability to trust in You as their Provider and Healer, their almighty God and gracious Saviour. But Father, as I consider their lack of trust, their foolish murmurings, and prideful attitude, I recognise the times that I have been guilty of the same unbelief. Forgive me for my lack of faith and I pray that in my personal difficulties, I would shake off my cloak of unbelief, and trust in You for EVERY eventuality of life - even those times when I do not understand or when things seem unfair. Thank You that Jesus came to earth and turned my bitterness into sweetness and saved me by grace - through faith in HIM. Keep me low at the cross and broken before You - this I ask in Jesus' Name, AMEN.

Source: Verse of the day for Exodus 20:3

Heavenly Father, I realised more and more how despicable and obnoxious is the practice of idolatry, when someone or something is seated on the throne of our lives, instead of Jesus Christ, the true and living God. Keep me from any form or idolatry. Protect me from the wiles of the devil, and help me to keep the eyes of my heart on Jesus, the Author and Finisher of my faith.. Who alone is worthy of my worship and praise. Knowing that I died with Christ and have been raised up in Him into newness of life, I pray that King Self may be kept in the place of death, and that I will not be hoodwinked into giving honour to anything, except my God and Saviour, Jesus Christ, in Whose name I pray, AMEN.
