Hello and thanks for joining in on to today’s daily devotion. Today is Tuesday January 19th. The 3rd day of the Hebraic week.
Our verse today is Ex. 3:7
YHWH said, “I have indeed seen the misery of my people in Egypt. I have heard them crying out because of their slave drivers, and I am concerned about their suffering.
Ever felt like YHWH doesn’t notice what you may be going through? Ever felt like YHWH doesn’t hear your prayers? Ever felt like you’re all alone in this big crazy world?
The Israelites felt the same way. This verse is where we see YHWH talking to Moses at the burning bush. YHWH was working in their salvation. He had already planned out their deliverance and was now putting it into action. Yet, did the Israelites see what He was doing?
No. Did they have any idea what His plans were. Not a clue.
All they knew was that it seemed He was no where to be found. All they knew was the injustice that was being done to them. All they knew was the hopelessness of feeling that YHWH didn’t care, didn’t hear and was no where to be found.
If you’re struggling with those feelings right now. Please don’t give up. He’s there. He hears His children. He see’s His children. He’s working in ways you simply can’t see. He’s planning things that you can’t even imagine. You need only to stay faithful.
Will it be easy? Most likely no. But in the end, you’ll see His hand at work in ways that you never imagined. When you do, everything you’re going through will be nothing but a distant memory.
Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until tomorrow, shalom!
