The above lyrics is from “Trust in You” song by Lauren Daigle, it is my #songoftheday today 🎶
Sometimes when we commit to trust in God, things don’t turn easier they’ve even become way harder!
Moses had his faith in God and His promise that the Israelites would be freed from slavery in Egypt and to enter the promised land, the Canaan. However, when Moses approached Pharaoh and delivered the message, Pharaoh hardened his heart and made the Israelites worked even harder! (by not providing straws for them which is something necessary in making bricks, something that I’ve just learned this morning when I read Exodus 5).
The Israelites now had extra duties to find their own straws PLUS they still had to meet the daily quota of the bricks making.
Moses complained to God, “why have You brought all this trouble on Your own people, Lord? Why did You send me? Ever since I came to Pharaoh as Your spokesman, he has been even more brutal to Your people. And You have done nothing to rescue them!”.
Oh how I can really relate with Moses!
God once again gave His promise of deliverance, but the Israelites “refused to listen anymore. They had become too discouraged by the brutality of their slavery”.
And how I could relate with this too.
We may become too discouraged too in many times. Seeing the facts and circumstances in front of us are just different with one that God’s promised.
Is there something wrong with me?
What should I do more?
What should I do less?
We’ve lost our focus on Jesus and fix our eyes more on our doubts and worries instead.
We may not be able to find all the answers to our questions.
But today, as I read God’s words and listen to the above #songoffaith I find another courage to trust.
Another step of faith to believe in God’s timing.
God’s delay does not equal to failure of His plans.
Find your strenght, comfort, and peace in God’s words.
And once again, #choose to trust in Him.
Even if He did not move the mountain in our timing,
Even if He did not part the sea,
Even if He did not multiply the bread and the fish,
His ways are way higher than ours.
Choose to trust and keep the joy in our heart.
His deliverance shall come at His perfect timing!
