Slavery. Affliction. Hardship. Cruelty. Pain. Sorrow. You name it and the people of Israel experienced it.
Have you ever, in the midst of a particularly difficult season, wondered if God even saw you? If He knew what was happening? If He heard your cries?
If so, today’s reading has a beautiful word for you.
God saw the people of Israel – and God knew. Exodus 2:25
We are told that God heard their cries. God remembered every promise made to them. God saw them in their pain. And God knew.
He reiterates all of it in Exodus 3. God says, ”I have surely seen the affliction…I have heard their cries…I know their suffering…and I have come down to deliver them. Exodus 3:7-8
And this is not the last time God will come down to deliver His children.
God hears you. He sees you. He has not forgotten a single promise He has made to you. He knows what you’re currently dealing with. And His message for you today is…
I have observed you and I promise that I will bring you up out of the affliction. Exodus 3:16-17
Look out, friends, deliverance and delight are coming your way.
