When God comes to save his people, things get worse before they get better. This is all a part of God’s great plan. But it is a terrible trial and a test of faith. In our struggles, God wants us to see the big picture, keep our eyes on the goal, and remember that he is doing all things for his glory and for the good of his people. Scripture reference is Exodus 5 – 6:1.
We will consider these three points:
1. The announcement of God and the resulting oppression of Pharoah.
2. The cries of the people and of Moses and the promise of God.
3. The fulfillment in Christ.
