Exodus 17:8-16 Hands Held Up Summary: The Bible tells us that we are at war. It is not waged with guns and tanks, but we are in a spiritual battle against the world, against sin, and against Satan. Today as we see God's people in Exodus battle an enemy, we also see Moses stand and pray for God to give victory in the battle. Let's think about how to depend on God in prayer as we fight our spiritual battles in the wilderness: Outline: 1. We will wage war in the wilderness 2. The true war is waged in prayer 3. The Lord is my banner in the battle Verse: Exodus 17:15 And Moses built an altar and called the name of it, The Lord Is My Banner... Questions for devotions and family worship: 1. How does Israel's battle against the Amalekites reflect the long war against sin and Satan? 2. Israel was already saved from slavery and God vowed to bring them to the promised land. Yet they still had to face these enemies along the way. How might this help us understand our pilgrimage toward heaven? 3. How does Moses' prayer, and the help of Aaron and Hur help us understand what was truly happening in the battle? How does this help us understand prayer, and the spiritual battles we face? 4. What does it mean when Exodus 17:15 says

Exodus 17:1-7 Water from the Rock Summary: How do you respond when someone around you is always complaining? Do you join them and complain too? Or do you get annoyed and wish they would stop? Do you not want to be near them? If we are honest, we all struggle at times with grumbling and complaining. Sadly God (and Moses) had to bear with the grumbling of Israel in the wilderness. Today we see God provide water again for His people. But He gives them much more than that. He provides mercy for their sin. Let's think about it: Outline: 1. God in the dock 2. God on the rock 3. God provides for His flock Verse: 1 Corinthians 10:4 ... For they drank from the spiritual Rock that followed them, and the Rock was Christ. Questions for devotions and family worship: 1. What are the things you most frequently complain about? 2. How does Israel heighten their complaint in Exodus 17? How is God on trial here? How do people put God on trial today? 3. Why is it significant that God took his stand on the rock and commanded Moses to strike it? How does Paul speak about this incident in 1 Cor. 10:4? 4. God constantly shows himself patient and forgiving with a complaining people. How should this passage shape us as we think about our sin, and God's mercy?

Exodus 16:22-36 The Gift of Sabbath Summary: Did you know that Sundays are a gift from God? Today we're going to hear how God gave the gift of a one day Sabbath (rest) to Israel in the wilderness. He taught them to trust Him by giving them a two day's supply of manna on the sixth day of the week, so they could rest on the seventh day. God still gives us a day of rest as well, our Lord's Day (Sundays!). Let's listen in and find out what it means for us: Outline: 1. Sabbath is a tool to teach us to rest and trust 2. Sabbath is a gift of God's grace 3. Sabbath is a sign of God's salvation Verse: Mark 2:27 The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath. Questions for Devotions and Family Worship: 1. Why did God give Israel the gift of a one day Sabbath every week? Why does he give it to us? Why did Jesus say
