Verse of the Day
Then you will know that the LORD makes a distinction between the Egyptians and the Israelites. [NLT] Exodus 11:7b
Before the children of Israel could be rescued, they had to be reminded about the goodness and greatness of God. They had been enslaved for so long that they had probably given up on the idea of ever being freed/rescued, or if in fact the God of their fore-fathers was still in the business of answering heartfelt requests that was birthed from their sufferings. And when Pharaoh refused Moses’ messages from God, the Lord had to show to the Israelites that their God was a living One and not like the gods of the Egyptians. I’m sure when they were reminded the lengths Jehovah would go in order to rescue them from their distresses, I’m sure we don’t need to wonder how they would have felt at the time. The Lord Jesus, the Son of God says anyone who believes in Him, who believes in His teachings have salvation for their souls. And through our faith in Jesus Christ, God qualifies us as His children, and regardless of whatever we might be going through, He is more than able to show to us and the people around us, that there is indeed a benefit in having the Creator of the entire universe as our Father.
