In my daily study I pick up Exodus 19. This book is cliche for being "old fashion". However today I urge to to think of it as lessons learned. Additionally look for the theme of faithfulness.
We see God giving instructions to Moses. These aren't orders for slavery but direction for prosperity. Even before Jesus was sent God shows His love to the very people that doubt him. Even after He brought them through trials.
Now we know about the risen savior , we know if the grace we have but we still doubt. Doubt is normal. However right now let us claim on the victory of what was done and what will be.
I need to add one more thing.
In order to have a close relationship with God we are to live Holy. We are to set ourselves apart. Yes we sin- but right now let's ask God to forgive us.
"Father forgive me for my sins. God I want to live holy. I want to have you work in me in a new way. Use me for Your kingdom. Lord I'm asking for this not for the blessings your word tells us but because You love me and sent your son Jesus to die for my sins. Amen "
soli deo gloria
