‘Word soon reached Jethro, about all the wonderful things God had done for His people and for Moses’
- Do you believe that you can trust the Lord for wonderful things at this time? - It is part of God’s heart and character to do wonderful things for us. - Be expectant, keep holding on, and believe in His faithfulness towards you. - May others soon hear about the wonderful things He has done for you.
Prayer: Lord, I am expectant, and my heart is full of confidence that You will do wonderful things for me. I pray that others, around me, will also see how You have undertaken and provided for me. Amen.
