““Therefore, say to the Israelites: ‘I am the Lord, and I will bring you out from under the yoke of the Egyptians. I will free you from being slaves to them, and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with mighty acts of judgment.
Moses reported this to the Israelites, but they did not listen to him because of their discouragement and harsh labor.”
Exodus 6:6, 9 NIV
Since Moses himself raised objections to God’s call to lead the Israelites out of captivity, it probably came as no surprise to him when his people did not rush to jump on the bandwagon of his message. With a promise filled with unknowns and a history of oppression and abuse they at least knew what to expect day to day; they already knew that dysfunction. Stepping out in faith can be SCARY. God does not promise easy, but He promises best, if we will place our trust in Him vs self, obey and wait persistently.🚦
