As I read chapters 5 and 6 of Exodus this morning, verse 9 of chapter 6 caught my attention. "Moses reported this to the Israelites, but they did not listen to him because of their discouragement and harsh labor."
In retaliation for Moses’ request, Pharaoh made life even more miserable for the Israelites. They, in turn, turned against Moses. But their lack of faith in God’s promises could not stop God’s plan of redemption. God told Moses to stay on track; He was not finished.
As God’s people, our Savior will bring us through our earthly trials, whether we believe He can or not. Think of how much more peace we can have when we put our needs in His care instead of doubting His care for us. God acts in His time, which is always perfect.
