Moran writes, "In our Scripture reading this week, we see a continuation of last week’s portion regarding what we are to do with the treasures that God has entrusted to us."
Moran writes, "In our Scripture portion this week, we can see that whatever God asks or requires of us, He will also give us the tools through which to do it."
Moran writes, "In this week’s Torah portion, we find an amazing indication of something that was to be fulfilled in Messiah Yeshua."
Moran writes, "Let us search our hearts for what motivates us in our walk with the Lord. Are we motivated by fear? By an expectation to receive back from Him? By love and gratitude?"
Moran writes, "Sadly, many view the statutes of the Lord negatively, as it conjures up the idea of a burdensome law. Instead, I believe we can view His statutes positively, understanding that He gave them to us to not only know what is right, just, and good, but also to have abundant life!"
Moran writes, "But isn’t that how we are with God? For many years, I heard about God, but it was only when I said to God, “I want to know you, not just about you”, that I encountered the Living God through Messiah Yeshua."
Moran writes, "In our Scripture portion this week, Pharaoh releases the Children of Israel from slavery in Egypt. It is a very dramatic exodus, and we witness the mighty hand of the Lord working on behalf of His people."
Moran writes, "This event foreshadows an amazing act of deliverance which took place many years later, when the blood of another lamb, Yeshua the promised Messiah, was shed in order to redeem His people..."
Moran writes, "The second important point that we can see is that God intended to glorify His name not only among the Hebrew slaves, but also among the Egyptians."
Moran writes, "Are you looking to God, trusting Him to give you all that you need to fulfill the task He has given you? Or are you like Moses when God first called him, giving God all the reasons why you aren’t able to answer His call?"
