7. Moses had questions for God. Maybe you have questions too. Maybe it is hard for you to understand why God has allowed certain difficulties, trials and temptations to come into your life. What questions do you have for God? Commit some time in prayer to lay these questions before God, knowing that He is in control and loves you very much. From the story of Moses, we see that God is long-suffering with us, with our fears and frailties. He longs for us to rest in His arms, but He is faithful to help us make our way even if we come with our many questions and doubts.
