TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 30TH | EXODUS 10:21-24 In this Exodus story, God uses darkness to strike fear in Pharaoh’s heart and protect the Israelites from those who seek to keep them enslaved. The Egyptians could not find the Israelites hidden by God’s darkness. This Advent, find some quiet time to sit in the dark. We are often afraid of the dark because of the way it limits our vision. But can you experience the dark’s protection like this passage suggests? What do you find comforting when all the lights are out? How is God seeking to protect and comfort you this Advent? You cover and comfort us, Eternal God. We thank you for the darkness that reminds us of the ways you protect and provide for us. Help us to seek you, even when we cannot see. Help us to feel your presence among us this Advent. Amen.
