Exodus 20:20–Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. God has come to test you, so that the fear of God will be with you to keep you from sinning.”
While the people of Israel had been the recipients of the miracles of God, they had not yet had a personal experience or encounter with God Himself. So, as the people were gathered there, He revealed some of His glory and power directly to the people. God knew that it is much easier to follow Him one we’ve experienced and encountered Him.
Father, being tested is difficult, but since I have seen You move and work in my life in the past, I know I can trust You to do the same going forward. Father, I will remember all that You have done in my life and I will hold to it as I go through the difficulties and testing that You bring.
