In the book of Exodus, the children of Israel was under extreme affliction of Pharaoh, because they were great in number and was very fruitful. In our society today, people are afflicted with the a job lost, home foreclosure, retirement stolen, the destruction of family. Not to mention the plagues of ungodlessness.
God raised up Moses to tell the children of Israel, “I am the Lord. I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians‘. I will rescue you from their bondage and redeem you…” However, due to the anguish of spirit and cruel bondage, they did not heed the word of the Lord from Moses. (most of us can relate to that) Furthermore, the more Moses told the people what God said, the more they were afflicted. (Today, the more you hear the promises of God the more it seem like bad things happens.)
After many plagues and finally he death of Egypt’s first born, Pharaoh let the people go.
Lesson to be learned:
God hears your groan
God will send a deliver (a word, a way out, etc.)
He will deliver you or your family member from any bondage. (sex, drugs, bad habits, grief, etc.) What every have power over you.
When they left out of Egypt, the didn’t go out empty handed.
God led them in the wilderness to worship Him.
Then hen purged them, he separated the whet from the staff sort of speak.
Moses could only take them so far, then He raised up Joshua to take the children to the promise land.
And so will he take you to your promise land…Just hold on.
