It’s Always Darkest Before The Dawn…

Exodus 5:22-23 and 6:1 Then Moses turned to the Lord and said, “O Lord, why have you done evil to this people?  Why did you ever send me?  For since I came to Pharaoh to speak in your name, he has done evil to this people, and you have not delivered your people at all.”

But the Lord said to Moses, “Now you shall see what I will do…….”

When things seem to look the worst ~ look up, not around!  Just because things don’t seem to be going right doesn’t mean that God isn’t working.  God may be getting ready to show Himself mighty in your situation so remain faithful and hold on, God isn’t finished with this yet!  Jeremiah 29:11  “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “Plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

There’s so much evil going on in the world, worse than I have ever seen in my life and believe me if you read Revelation you will see just how mighty God is going to show Himself to be!  In the meantime, though He is still all about showing Himself mighty in His people’s lives if they will just remain faithful and follow Him.  The way may seem uncertain and scary at times but He will always do what He has said He will do!  In this case, poor Moses felt somewhat responsible because He was the one telling the people that God was going to deliver them and now things were worse than they were before he showed up and the people were suffering and angry.  

It is often when we feel as though things couldn’t get any worse that God is working and He is about to show up to do great things so hold on to your hope.  Don’t give up now!  God is always at work and He knows what you have been facing ~ your tears have not escaped His notice.  Pour your heart out to Him today, hold on to every ounce of faith you have left, and pray for the strength to get to the other side, if you have no strength left ask Him to carry you through and He will.  Take some time and read about all of the miracles God did to deliver the people of Israel if you need some encouragement.  Trust Him to deliver you knowing that His best is yet to come!
