The comfortable prosperity of God’s chosen family is reversed at the beginning of the book of Exodus.

How will God now save his people and bless his people? The book of Exodus describes this mighty deliverance. Ness Hughes hosts this series of short devotionals as part of the Bible Reading strand of GrowingDisciples.
