Moses' Crisis of Faith Exodus 5:22-23

  • he is questioning God’s

  • he is questioning God’s

God Reminds Him

1. GOD IS IN CONTROL Exodus 6:1

2. GOD IS FAITHFUL! He keeps His covenant Promises Exodus 6:2-5

3. GOD SAVES! Exodus 6:6-7:5

  • Notice the FREEDOM (Exodus 6:6)
  • Notice the REDEMPTION (Exodus 6:6)
  • Notice the ADOPTION (Exodus 6:7)
  • Notice the INHERITANCE (Exodus 6:8)
  • Notice the JUDGMENT & MERCY (Exodus 7:3-4)

God’s answer for Moses’ discouragement is an answer to ours as well. Remember, our God…

  • He is in control
  • He is faithful
  • He will SAVE to the uttermost!
