Good morning y’all. Today we looking at Exodus 3.
In today’s chapter we see Moses encounter God in the burning bush; and God gives him is assignment, which is to deliver the children of Israel out of Egypt.
Be blessed as you read 🙂
I will focus on verses 7-9 today.
“And the Lord said, I have surely seen the affliction of My people who are in Egypt, and have heard their cry because of their taskmasters and oppressors; for I know their sorrows and sufferings and trials. And I have come down to deliver them out of the hand and power of the Egyptians and to bring them up out of that land to a land good and large, a land flowing with milk and honey [a land of plenty]–to the place of the Canaanite, the Hittite, the Amorite, the Perizzite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite. Now behold, the cry of the Israelites has come to Me, and I have also seen how the Egyptians oppress them” ( Exodus 3:7-9 AMP).
God is not blind to our afflictions and He is not deaf to our cries for help. He is also aware of all our sorrows, sufferings and trials.
God is concerned about us. We are top priority on His mind. Nothing that is happening to us right now is a surprise to God. He already knew about it and already has a plan of escape for us.
He is bringing us to a land that is full of plenty, so much that we will forget about the sorrows and sufferings of the past.
Keep trusting God today. Don’t loose hope or faith. God is working things out for your good. The I AM THAT I AM is on your case. Romans 8:28 tells us all things work together for good to them that love God, to them that are called according to His purpose.
In verse 9 of Exodus 3, God reiterates the fact that He has heard and seen the cry of his children. He is the God who sees. I’m reminded of the story of Hagar in Genesis 16. In her lowly state, an angel of the Lord appeared to her to comfort her. The angel told her to return to Sarai and gave her prophesies concerning her son who was to be named Ishmael. My bible commentary says Ishmael means ‘God hears’. Isn’t it comforting to know that God hears us, that we are not serving a God who is blind to our needs or deaf to our cries :). God is aware of everything that’s going on in our lives and around us.
“Thereafter, Hagar used another name to refer to the Lord , who had spoken to her. She said, “You are the God who sees me.” [El-roi]. She also said, “Have I truly seen the One who sees me?” (Genesis 16:13 NLT)
Whatever you are going through today, just know that God sees and He hears you. Cry out to him today and he will meet you where you are. You don’t have to be perfect or have it all together. I’m sure the Isrealites weren’t perfect, yet God said in today’s reading that “He has seen and heard their cry for help and He is concerned about them”. Trust God to meet your needs today. He is the friend that is closer than a brother.
In Isaiah 49:15 He said He will never forget you.
“The Lord answered, “Could a mother forget a child who nurses at her breast? Could she fail to love an infant who came from her own body? Even if a mother could forget, I will never forget you”. (Isaiah 49:15 CEVUS06).
In Matthew 28:20b He said He is with you always.
“…..I will be with you always, even until the end of the world”. (Matthew 28:20b CEVUS06)
In Hebrews 13: 5b – 6, He said He will never leave you nor forsake you.
“For God has said, “I will never fail you. I will never abandon you.” So we can say with confidence, “The Lord is my Helper, so I will have no fear. What can mere people do to me?” (Hebrews 13:5b-6 NLT).
Dear Lord we thank you for today. Thank you for your love towards us. Thank you for reminding us today that you are not a blind or deaf God. You are a God who sees and hears us. Pls help us wait for you and to trust you to meet our needs. Thank you Lord. In Jesus Name. Amen
Thanks for joining today. Pls feel free to share your thots on the chapter.
Have a blessed day and remember God sees and hears you 🙂
