A quick of my Bible reading today: Moses is raised up as the deliverer of Israel but Pharaoh increases the workload on and abuse of the Israelites when confronted. The Israelites are depressed, discouraged and overworked under the bondage of that nation.

“Say, therefore, to the sons of Israel, ‘I am the LORD, and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will deliver you from their bondage. I will also redeem you with an outstretched arm and with great judgments. Then I will take you for My people, and I will be your God; and you shall know that I am the LORD your God, who brought you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians. I will bring you to the land which I swore to give to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and I will give it to you for a possession; I am the LORD.’”

” So Moses spoke thus to the sons of Israel, but they did not listen to Moses on account of their despondency and cruel bondage.” Exodus 6

The Bible is clear that we are part of that inheritance that Moses reiterated to the Israelites, since we are grafted to that tree through our relationship with Jesus Christ. We are likely to see odious burdens placed on us by a godless government in months and years to come. God will judge our nation and deliver his people, however, just as he delivered the Israelites. Note that God did not judge the people under bondage despite not listening to Moses, because of their discouragement. We may be discouraged, but we have the judge and deliverer living in US! Take care to listen to him, and take heart!

God did not only deliver the Israelites from Pharaoh and Egypt, he preserved their families and their possessions, and blessed them with the riches of Egypt. How much greater is our inheritance!
