KEY VERSEExodus 3:7–8 (God to Moses)
Then the Lord told him, “I have certainly seen the oppression of my people in Egypt. I have heard their cries of distress because of their harsh slave drivers. Yes, I am aware of their suffering. So I have come down to rescue them from the power of the Egyptians and lead them out of Egypt into their own fertile and spacious land. It is a land flowing with milk and honey—the land where the Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites now live.”

You can trust me today. I already know what’s going on and what you need. Turn to me, and you’ll see that I am already with you. You don’t have to look for me. I am here, and I will provide.

Just as I enlisted Moses for a seemingly impossible task, be ready for me to call on you. In fact, more than being prepared, be excited. Look around and imagine all I might do. Moses doubted himself, and that’s understandable. His knowledge was limited to his experience. But I am asking you to look beyond what you can understand or accomplish on your own. I will ask you to do more than you can handle, and it will be OK to feel overwhelmed. But trust in me more than your fear. Don’t miss out on being part of a miracle and someone’s answer to prayer. I am with you, and I am all you need.

Trust God today. Feel overwhelmed or don’t think you’re able to make it through the day? Lean on God and his resources more than your own. Ask a friend or two to pray for you and give them updates throughout your day.
