Music and Lyrics Used by Permission CCLI# 1595532 Sermon Application Questions: 1. God says that his aim in the exodus is that (14:4) 'I will get glory over Pharaoh and all his host, and that the Egyptians shall know that I am the LORD.' Does that seem selfish to you? What are some reasons it’s good for us that God is committed to displaying his glory and revealing who he is? 2. This passage reveals God as his people’s present shepherd. What circumstances in your life right now make you feel your need for a shepherd to lead you and provide for you? How does this passage help you in your need? 3. God is his people’s gracious Savior. Do you ever find it difficult to keep a firm hold on this truth and instead feel more sure of God’s love when you’re obeying him consistently and less sure of his love when you fall short? How does seeing the way he deals with his people in this passage help you? 4. God is his people’s victorious king. Through the death and resurrection of Jesus he has defeated our greatest enemies: sin, death, and the devil. How does being deeply assured of this lead not to living however we want, but living for him? Have you seen this change in your own life?

Sermon Application Questions: 1. Why does God have the writer of Psalm 105 rewrite the events he’s already had Moses record in the book of Exodus? What does the fact that this psalm was written 400 years after Exodus say about its usefulness for us living so many years after the Exodus? 2. How does that saying, “The way to build trust in a relationship is to make promises and keep them” strike you? Do you think it is true? Does it help you in your appreciation of God or does it seem like it doesn’t really apply? 3. What promises that God has made are most precious to you and would be most devastating to you if God did not “remember”? What accounts of God’s remembering in the past do you need to “remember” (v. 5) that will help you trust him now?

Music and Lyrics Used by Permission CCLI# 1595532 Sermon Application Questions: Think of the two main points from today’s message: 1. God means his presence with his people to be uninterrupted. 2. God means his presence to be known by his people. Reflect on each of these truths as they relate to your life, and then ask: What is the level of my confidence in and my experience of God’s presence? How do I think about it? How does it affect my day-to-day life? How might I grow in experiencing what God desires for me?
