Exodus 2:25 – God saw the people of Israel—and God knew.
Where is God? Doesn’t He care? Almost from the beginning of the onset of the coronavirus to today, those are questions many have asked. Where is God? He is here. Doesn’t He care? Yes, He sees, He cares, and, as today’s verse says, He knows. All of it. He knows!
The people of Israel had been in slavery for nearly 400 years in Egypt. They cried out for help. They cried for God to come and rescue them. Exodus 2:24 says, “And God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob.” He knew. And He was providing. Just ahead of those verses, Moses had been born and was delivered to the daughter of Pharaoh, where he would be raised in a royal court, commit a crime, and become a fugitive in the wilderness tending sheep, until the time that God would need him.
Lyrics to an old hymn include these words: “Jesus knows all about our struggles; He will guide ‘til the day is done,” and “There’s not an hour that He is not near us…no night so dark, but His love can cheer us.”
Only God knows if He has prepared a Moses to rescue America from the dark days and nights that surround the nation. But He does know. He has heard the cries, He cares, and He is with you.
Pray With Us
Almighty Omnipresent God, thank You for Your omniscience and Your omnipotence, as well as forever being present. Yours alone, O God, is the knowledge of what is to come and when. Mine it is to trust You. I long for the Day of Your Great Redemption of Your people to Yourself, and pray that old Aramaic word ‘Maranatha,’ “Come, Our Lord Jesus.” Keep my heart attuned to Yours, and guide my steps each day. Thank You for hearing my prayer, for I ask it in Jesus’ Name.
