Will You Let God Set You Free?

Will You Let God Set You Free?

Read Exodus 6:6
Today’s Truth

Moses was a messenger with great news. God was promising to free His people, yet hopelessness kept them from accepting that promise. The Bible says, “... they refused to listen anymore. They had become too discouraged by the brutality of their slavery” Exodus 6:9 NLT 

Don’t we do the same when Jesus tries to speak to us today? We get so caught up in what’s happening around us, we find it hard to believe there is any other way to live.  

Discussion Questions
  • Do you relate more to Israel or Moses in this story? Why?
  • What, if anything, stops you from hearing from God?
  • What, if anything, do you want to be free of today?

Moses’ mission to free Israel is a perfect parallel to Jesus’ mission to free us. God sent His Son to free us from sin and give us eternal life. But like Israel, we can be so blinded by our circumstances we refuse to listen when the Lord speaks. 

We don’t believe Jesus’ offer when we hear it because it sounds too good to be true. Or maybe we don’t hear it at all because we’re too busy trying to stay afloat to be distracted by something as daunting as a brand new life. But God keeps pursuing us the same way He kept pursuing Moses and His people in Egypt.
