July 23 – Trust That God Will Deliver His Children!

Daily Bible Life

King Pharaoh was upset with Moses and his people for asking for their freedom. The king asked his servant to multiply the people’s punishment. Moses was at the center of the situation, because the Israelites also, blamed him for their hardship. However, while the people pointed accusative fingers at anything they could find, God was busy plotting his miracle to perform on their behalves. The Creator was determined to set his children free from the Egyptians’ bondage.

The scripture explained how Moses’ rescue effort sparked rage among the Israelites, “Afterward Moses and Aaron went in and told Pharaoh, “Thus says the Lord God of Israel: ‘Let My people go, that they may hold a feast to me in the wilderness.’” And Pharaoh said, “Who is the Lord, that I should obey His voice to let Israel go? I do not know the Lord, nor will I let Israel go.” So they said, “The God of the Hebrews has met with us. Please, let us go three days’ journey into the desert, and sacrifice to the Lord our God, lest He fall upon us with pestilence, or with the sword.” Then the king of Egypt said to them, “Moses and Aaron, why do you take the people from their work? Get back to your labor.” And Pharaoh said, “Look, the people of the land are many now, and you make them rest from their labor!” So the same day Pharaoh commanded the taskmasters of the people and their officers, saying, “You shall no longer give the people straw to make brick as before. Let them go and gather straw for themselves. And you shall lay on them the quota of bricks which they made before. You shall not reduce it. For they are idle; therefore they cry out, saying, ‘Let us go and sacrifice to our God.’ Let more work be laid on the men, that they may labor in it, and let them not regard false words” (Exodus 5:1-9).

 

Lesson:

God is supreme, and his mode of operations cannot be predicted unless he reveals his plan. However, no matter what type of miracle that the Creator chooses to adopt, his ultimate goal will always be to favor his children. He will do whatever is necessary to defend the interest of his people and defeat their foes. Christians must trust God in dire situations and earnestly wait to receive his help. Pressure may mount during a difficult situation, but Christians must be resolute in their faith, as God will never forsake his own people. He will respond in due time to meet our needs, as we express immovable faith in him. Jehovah will meet our needs and also, cause us to laugh so that we can praise his name.

 

Prayer:

Dear Lord, please help me to trust you whenever I am confronted with any difficult situation. Give me the ability to patiently wait for your salvation. Let your covenant of peace, protection, and prosperity, be fully manifested in my life. Please give me long life and good health to witness your goodness in the land of the living. For in the name of Jesus Christ, I make my requests. Amen.
