Thoughts of Devotion:
When you see the history of Israel you discover a God of covenants. Time and again we find how God is always faithful to his promises, faithful to his Word, and immovable in carrying out what he has said. In this portion we see how God reminds them of the covenant that he made with Israel centuries ago, when the people left Egypt towards the desert. In Exodus 34:10 he tells us, “And He said: “Behold, I make a covenant. Before all your people I will do marvels such as have not been done in all the earth, nor in any nation; and all the people among whom you are shall see the work of the Lord. For it is an awesome thing that I will do with you.”
In the midst of discouragement and fear, God again reminds them of the promise made to their people. He brings to mind the great wonders he had promised to do and carry out in their lives. We observe the character of God, trustworthy, never forgetting, he fulfills what he promises!
Let’s read these three verses, and pray that our faith grows this morning …
