The God of enslaved Israel is about to make good on an ancient promise, and has a special job for his servant Moses. This would-be hero, however, is less than enthusiastic. God still calls us to speak God’s Word of freedom, forgiveness, and healing. How will you answer God’s call?

TALK: Consider some of these ideas:
But Moses said to God, “If I come to the Israelites and say to them, ‘The God of your ancestors has sent me to you,’ and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ what shall I say to them?” 14God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.” (Exodus 3:13-14)

- Tell of a time you had to wait a really long time for an answer from God. What happened when the answer finally came?
- If you are still waiting, what answer are you hoping for?
- How do you respond to God’s call to intercede for God’s children in a time of need?
- Are we willing to speak up, even if it puts us at risk?
PRAY: Holy God, your promises stand fast forever. Make us bold to trust where you lead, and put our unfailing hope in your faithfulness. In the name of Jesus, Amen
BLESS: May God answer your prayers. Amen.
