Delivered – Week 2: God Promises
Delivered – Week 2: God Promises
• God Reveals – 1 Corinthians 10:1-13
• God’s Promises
Philippians 4:6-8 – Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank
him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace
will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix
your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that
are excellent and worthy of praise.
• Exodus 4:11-13
• Saying God can’t use or forgive you is saying God isn’t big enough to work through your brokenness or weakness.
Ephesians 2:8-9 – God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it.
• Exodus 5:19-23
• Didn’t the Lord tell them this would happen?
• Old and New Testament comparisons
• God’s Promises doesn’t say there will be no pain
• God is faithful even when we are not (2 Timothy 2:13)
Exodus 6:9-13 – So Moses told the people of Israel what the Lord had said, but they refused to listen anymore. They had become too discouraged by the brutality of their slavery. Then the Lord said to Moses, “Go back to Pharaoh, the king of Egypt, and tell him to let the people of Israel leave his country.” “But Lord!” Moses objected. “My own people won’t listen to me anymore. How can I expect Pharaoh to listen? I’m such a clumsy speaker! But the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron and gave them orders for the Israelites and for Pharaoh, the king of Egypt. The Lord commanded Moses and Aaron to lead the people of Israel out of Egypt.
• Have you stopped listening, pursuing, following because the difficulties of your circumstance?
• John the Baptist (Luke 7:18-23)
• Exodus 4:29-31
• Jesus came down and entered our brokenness
• When is the last time you worshiped because God cares?
Hebrews 6:18-19 – So God has given both his promise and his oath. These two things are unchangeable because it is impossible for God to lie. Therefore, we who have fled to him for refuge can have great confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us. This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. It leads us through the curtain into God’s inner sanctuary.
• The Lord told Moses, now you will see
• God is Yahweh the Lord
Share a memory of when things have not gone as planned.
From the sermon, what was thought-provoking to you?
Read Exodus 4:1-17. What do you see about God in this passage? What does it tell us about Moses?
What are ways God has demonstrated his power and provision to you?
Moses was reluctant to do what God asked him to do. He would disrupt his current life and go back to a place that he had failed and ran from. In what ways can you relate to Moses? What do you do when you are in situations that feel like where Moses was? Hebrews 11:24-26 have a different perspective of what is happening?
Read Exodus 5. What is happening in this passage? What would you be thinking if you were the
Israelite people? What would you be experiencing if you were Moses?
Read John 11:1-6. Talk about who John the Baptist was and what he was experiencing. What holds you to trusting God when timing and events don’t go as you expected? When has following Jesus not gone the way you expected it would?
6. Read Exodus 6:1-13. What are the promises God makes? What does that tell you about who God is?
Are there people in your life who are too discouraged to hold on to who God is and his reality? How can you be a part of leading them out of their Egypt?
