    A Call to Prayer – In God We Trust!

    Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’ Jeremiah 33:3 Moses was one of the greatest intercessors of his time. In Exodus 17 we see Moses interceding for Israel in the battle of Rephidim, but even the greatest of intercessors get tired and weary. Whenever Moses’ arms were held up in prayer the battle was successful. Whenever they fell, they began to lose. Aaron and Hur came alongside Moses and held him up. Here we see a true depiction of how God intended his church to behave in battle. We are all called to prayer, but we are…

    Labor of Love

    “Let us flee from the face of Israel, for the Lord fights for them!” Ex. 14:25             God didn’t just rescue His people, He blessed them in the presence of their enemies, and then used the enemy to bless them also! (Psa. 23:5, Ex. 12:35-36). God is jealous for us and He will move heaven and earth to prove it! (Deut. 4:24, Eph. 3:20). Israel’s victory wasn’t without struggle. Sometimes we want quick solutions, but God works ALL things together for good (Rom. 8:28). God showed Israel who He was, and then He gave the enemy an opportunity to repent (Ex. 6:7, 2 Pet. 3:9, Deut. 30:19). Pharaoh was given…
