“I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.”
Before laying out the Ten Commandments to Moses for the Israelites, God reminds the people who He is and what He has done for them.
God has a vision for the way we live our lives- a life set apart and consecrated to Him. But before He gives us a list of what to do or not do, He emphasizes His relationship with us; He cares for us and He has provided for our every need. He deserves all the praise and His aim for us is for our benefit as well as His.
Thank You for Your provision, Father. I know that You are good and the things You ask of me are few compared to all You’ve done for me. Help me to live according to Your commandments for Your glory.
