In the Old Testament, The Israelites were the people of God, they were chosen to become a nation through whom God would bless all other peoples. But, we see in the opening chapters of Exodus, God’s chosen people were in a bad way. The people of Israel had become slaves in Egypt. And in this way, they were not able to be the blessing to others that God had promised.
Pharoah, the King of Egypt, feared the Israelites because their numbers were large and a threat to his domain. So he made life unbearable for them until the people cried out in their slavery, sickness, and suffering. Some of the deepest crying, happened because many of their baby boys were murdered. Which bought trauma and hopelessness.
Today we maybe suffering from trauma and hopelessness like the children of Isreal and God may seem absent for a long time, but God hears our cries and groanings like he heard theirs and will act to bring us to freedom. It may not be easy or quick, but it would be decisive providing rescue for His suffering people.
The Israelites groaned in their slavery and cried out . . . to God. God heard their groaning and . . . was concerned about them (Exodus 2:23-25).
Yahweh, see and hear my cries today and the groaning of people who suffer everywhere in this world. Father, be concerned and please move us to the place of faithfulness and trust over worry and fear. God help me to be responsive to your call and move into action in Christ’s name. Amen!
