After God appoints Moses to confront Pharaoh and lead the Israelites out of slavery, they come to Mount Sinai, where God invites them to become “a kingdom of priests.” But things do not go as planned for the Israelites.

on repeat this week: Where I’m Standing Now

[ Print’s FREE here: ]

…prayer isn’t about getting what you desperately want,
but about getting more of the One Who desperately wants you.

What if we bravely lived what we humbly pray:
Your kingdom come —
not our kingdom.

Because you alone are God — and we are not.

And our problems fade in the light of Your gentle face, Your tender embrace….
