In verse 22, 23 it says:
22 Then Moses went back to the LORD and protested, “Why have you brought all this trouble on your own people, Lord? Why did you send me?
23 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 often I don’t trust the Lords timing. Or if a misfortune comes my way I’m so quick to wonder why God allows bad things to happen to me. I wonder – don’t you care? Or when I look around the world with all of the starvation, and senseless wars in the middle east, and the terror of Kony…
I wonder… doesn’t God care?
Of course I know he cares, and we can’t begin to understand his timing since it is not comprehendible to us. I know what comes next though starting in Chapter 6.
The Lord will bring judgement and deliver his people just as he promised.
“And if our God is for us, then who could ever stop us, And if our God is with us, then what could stand against?”
Be patient oh Israelites – God is coming!
