Day 76 - Exodus 6

V. 1 What a gracious answer the Lord gives! The unbelief of His people does not change His purpose of bringing the Israelites into the land of promise.
V. 2-8 God again gives His plain promise. Are we willing to believe God when He speaks before He acts? That is faith. A new name of God "Jehovah" is here given. God's special Name earlier had been the "Almighty God" (verse 3). (In Christianity today, God has fully revealed Himself as Father, Son and Holy Spirit).
V. 6-8 Notice seven times the Lord says "I will". In (1) deliverance, (2) liberty, (3) power, (4) intimacy (5) relationship, (6) blessing and (7) inheritance. Can you identify these?'
V. 9 Moses spoke a happy, comforting message, but it was not listened to because the people were so upset. How often we miss out because we are not patient and do not believe God!
V. 13, 14-27 Obedience to God's Word is what God insists upon. God knew that the people would be brought out of Egypt, so He gives us those families who would later become special leaders among the Israelites.
