Day 9 - 21 Day Fast
Day 9 - Pray for salvation, freedom, + purpose
Exodus 6:6-8, 1 Corinthians 1:20
In Exodus 6, God promises to save Israel from slavery. He promises to free them and redeem them, to make them His people and bring them into a new land. So many years later, we read the rest of the Old Testament and see God was faithful to keep His promises.
God is extending the same promises to us today. He wants us to save us from sin, free us from the past, fill our lives with purpose, and make us His family. These promises are on offer to anyone who will take Him up on them.
As you pray today, think about what these promises mean to you as well as to your family, your school, your neighborhood, your workplace. What would it look like for the people closest to you to also be saved, freed, filled with purpose, and brought into His family?
- How has knowing God and understanding the unique way He’s gifted you given your life meaning and purpose?
- Are there areas of your life where you’ve given up on experiencing freedom?
- Ask God, “What is my next step? Which promises do I need to believe?”
- Try reading Exodus 6:6-8 again, but make it personal this time. Insert your name in place of “the Israelites.” Insert your bondage in place of “the Egyptians.” Replace “the land” with that promise you struggle to believe.
Thank you, God, for always pursuing me and fighting for my freedom even in times I have grown weary. I stand firm on your promises for our freedom, salvation, and purpose!
It was powerful to read Exodus with my name and the thing I am struggling with. Believing God for new freedom.
