It is vital that we spend time in God’s Word.
But it’s not always easy.
We read a chapter and we don’t know what to get out of it or even how to start to understand it.
I thought I could try to help you get a little something out of what you are reading by providing you with some questions to ask as you look at the text. Good questions are a good start to understanding. Sometimes there will be more questions, sometimes less.
You can do this!
So, get a notebook, a pen, your Bible, and if you would like some help, take some time to answer the questions, and you may be surprised by all God teaches you.
- What is Moses doing when he meets God? Moses has gone from a position of glory to a very humble position, hasn’t he?
- God has decided He is going to deliver His people and He goes out to meet a shepherd in the wilderness. God often goes about saving in surprising ways. What does the author tell us about the mountain where he met with Moses?
- Who does verse 2 say appeared to Moses? Who does he say spoke to Moses in verse 5? What do you think about that?
- What’s happening in verse 2 that is so surprising?
- What does God tell Moses to do and why? What is this teaching us about God?
- How does God identify Himself? What does God say He has done in verse 7 and 8? What is His plan for Israel?
- What is Moses’ response? What do you think about that response?
- What is the sign God gives to encourage Moses? What is funny about that sign? Why does God do that you think? What does that say about what God is going to do?
- What does Moses say next? How does God respond?
- What do you think this name means? What are some things that name possibly tells you about God?
- God tells Moses to go and then he tells him how the future is going to go. What does that tell you about God?
- Egypt at this point is the greatest superpower in the world. The Pharaoh claimed to be God. Israel is just a slave nation. But what is God going to do to Egypt and what does that teach us about God and about salvation?
