Discussion | A Soft and Harmonious Heart

Welcome to the discussion episode for the story, “A Soft and Harmonious Heart.”Welcome to the discussion episode for the story, “A Soft and Harmonious Heart.”

Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh several times, asking him to let God’s people go into the wilderness to worship God there. God sent four different plagues on Egypt. The four plagues were the Nile river turned to blood, frogs, gnats, and flies. Pharaoh’s magicians were able to replicate the first two but not the third or fourth. After each plague, Pharaoh’s heart became hard, and he refused to let the people go. After the fourth one, he promised to release them but quickly changed his mind when the flies were gone. We learned that submitting to God is the best possible response to God regardless of the situation!

Times of Doubt

Like Moses, we can have times of doubt. Listening to God is important as he will encourage us when we are aligned with him.

Coming up on the Bible Story Podcast, we step into the burden on Moses as he struggles to see himself intertwined as the leader of the Israelite people in freeing them from Egypt. We empathize with Moses with these doubts and uncertainties and are encouraged by the response and prophecy of the Lord.

Discussion Times of Doubt

Everyone has struggled with times of doubt. It is part of being human and why God has given us the gift of faith.

Moses, a man of great conviction and desire to follow God, was not above or out of reach of human errors and doubts. As we continue to read through these sections of scripture in Exodus, we read about the vulnerability, frustration, and confusion Moses faced through his experience of following God’s prompting and call!

Discussion Episode | Title

Welcome to the discussion episode for the story, “God, why all this Misery?”

Moses leaves his Father-in-law, Jethro, packs up his family and takes them back to Israel. Aaron, Moses’ brother, shares Moses’ story of God and the burning bush. Moses performs miraculous signs and convinces Israel’s leaders of the desire that God has to rescue and free the Israelite people. Aaron and Moses ask Pharaoh to let the Israelites go into the wilderness to worship God. Pharoah gets angry and demands the Israelite slaves to continue making all the bricks for building, and in the same numbers, even though he is no longer providing them with straw, a key ingredient. This was an impossible task and caused the Israelite foremen to be whipped and beaten for missing the quota. Moses confronts God and asks him why he has done nothing to rescue the people. Things seemed so promising,  and eventually, Moses and the people are worse off than before!

Moses – had several questions and still responds to the voice of God with “Here I am.” We pray that we all can respond in this way to the calling God has given us,  willing to walk the path with God! 

Today we went through a TON of history on Moses – Exodus 1 – 4:17. We learned about his birth, upbringing, and calling given directly to him, from God, through a roaring bush of flames!

Discussion | God, Open Our Eyes

The lesson for the story is a prayer, ‘God, open our eyes.’ Today we dove into 2 Kings 6:8-22. Elisha prayed a particular prayer that frames the lesson of this week. God answered Elisha’s prayer. God opened the young man’s eyes to the wonder of God. The young man saw the power of God in the midst of fear, war, and imminent battle.  We can still ask this of God today.
