10.2 – Devotion

One of the most famous American presidents is none other than Abraham Lincoln. Lincoln was the sixteenth president, and many people think of him as one of the most important people in American history. He accomplished a lot while he was president, including abolishing slavery and winning the Civil War. But did you know that one of his first jobs was splitting wood? Lincoln came from humble beginnings. He was born on a rural Kentucky farm and grew up in rural Indiana and Illinois. As a kid, he probably never expected to be president.

Another man with humble beginnings is Moses. Born to a Hebrew woman in Egypt, Moses was sentenced to death the moment he was born. But God had other plans for Moses. God protected Moses throughout his life, keeping him safe from danger and guiding him to where he needed to be. God even guided Moses to be the leader of all the Israelites, even though Moses was nervous about it. God protected Moses and all the Israelites from every danger that came their way, and His plan for them was so much bigger than they could’ve imagined.

God’s protection wasn’t just for the Israelites—He also protects us today! The devil tries to tempt us and trick us, and sometimes we fall into his traps. But God will always be there to protect us. He will always forgive us of our sins, and He has defeated the devil, once and for all, through Jesus’ death on the cross! God guides us away from danger and into His loving, comforting arms, where we will always be safe.

  1. Why do we need God’s protection?
  2. What can we do when we need protection?
  3. How has God defeated the devil?

Let’s pray:

Dear God, You protected Moses and the Israelites and guided them to safety. Please protect us as well and guide us to You always. Thank You for always being there for us, and for forgiving us of all our sins. In your name we pray. Amen.
