Read: Exodus 6:1-30

Focus:
“Therefore, say to the people of Israel: ‘I am the Lord. I will free you from your oppression and will rescue you from your slavery in Egypt. I will redeem you with a powerful arm and great acts of judgment. I will claim you as my own people, and I will be your God. Then you will know that I am the Lord your God who has freed you from your oppression in Egypt.” Exodus 6:6-7

If you are reading this that may very well mean you may be doing your daily quiet time/daily devotional time. Quiet time is the time (no specific time of day necessary) you spend with God daily; reading the Bible, studying what you read and praying. I learned early on in my Christian walk that a dedicated time with God is very important. I also learned over the years since becoming a Christian during my quiet time with God that it’s good for me to speak the word of God over my life. What I mean is I take a portion of scripture and make it personal about me. In today’s reading verse six and seven are perfect for making it personal:

6 “Therefore, say to the Israelites: ‘I am the LORD, and I will bring you out from under the yoke of the Egyptians. I will free you from being slaves to them, and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with mighty acts of judgment. 7 I will take you as my own people, and I will be your God.”

The Lord is saying – I will bring you out from under the yolk of (insert word). It goes on to say: I will free you from being slaves to (insert word), and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with mighty acts of judgment. I will take you (insert your name) as my own, I will be your God.

That is a powerful word that can be spoken into your life today. I encourage you to make these two verses personal today. I then encourage you to begin to make God’s word from the Bible and begin to make it personal and begin to speak it over your life daily!

Prayer:
Father, help me to realize this day that when I read the Bible it is actually words from you to me. I want to make your word personal in my life as I begin to speak your words over my life this day. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
