In your unfailing love you will lead the people you have redeemed. In your strength you will guide them to your holy dwelling.

Exodus 15:13

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

As a minister, I have been privileged to be present at many of the most important events in people’s lives. Being present at these crossroads is a sacred trust. In those hardest moments — tragedy, catastrophe, dying, and death — verses like this one fill my heart with strength, and the promise reminds me why I answered a call to serve in waters way above my head. God’s promise in this passage is a great reminder that what he began when he redeemed his people out of Egypt, he completed by bringing them into the Promised Land. Now, we can hear a more powerful promise behind these words through the voice and writing of the apostle Paul to the Philippians.

…being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus” (Philippians 1:6).

Because of Jesus, we have even confidence to trust God’s promises in our verse for today. God did what he said for Israel. Since he did it for them, we confidently say “In your unfailing love you will lead the people you have redeemed. In your strength you will guide them to your holy dwelling.”

My Prayer…

Tender Shepherd, you have led me through some tough times and brought me safely through. As I seek to live for you, please make your presence known. I genuinely believe that you are guiding me to your holy dwelling, but I confess, at times, the way becomes difficult, and faith becomes hard. Renew my courage, O LORD, as you did with reluctant Moses and untested Joshua. Then, dear LORD, please use me to help others find your promise and their way home to you. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
