“So Moses and Aaron gathered all the elders of the Israelites.
Aaron told them everything that the Lord had told Moses.
Then Moses did the miracles for all the people to see. So the
Israelites believed. They heard that the Lord was concerned about them
and had seen their troubles. Then they bowed down and worshipped
The Israelites were in bondage for a really long time. Things had been really
difficult for them. So when Moses and Aaron told
them that God was concerned about them and had seen their troubles they must have
But the hope they had quickly disappeared when the pressure intensified. The joy, the hope,
the faith they had was replaced with doubt, fear, and anxiety. They were not patient with the
Lord. They wanted the deliverance to happen that very instant.
“As they were leaving the meeting with the king, they met Moses and Aaron.
Moses and Aaron were waiting for them. So they said to Moses and Aaron, “May the
Lord punish you. You caused the king and his offices to hate us. You have given them
an excuse to kill us.”
Exodus 5:20, 21
That story spoke to me today. We need to endure as we wait for God’s promise
to materialize in our lives. His promise for our lives, our families, and our countries will be
contested against by the enemy. There is no way he is going to just sit and let you
stroll into what God has promised you. he is the adversary and by the very nature of
that name he opposes and fights against everything good that God has prepared for us.
The Israelites thought it would be a walk in the park but it wasn’t. They had to trust God with
all that they had. They had to believe His word was true. They had to endure.
God’s promise was true and He would deliver them and they needed to understand that no matter
how bad things got.
“He sent a man before them, even Joseph, who was sold as a servant. His feet they hurt with fetters;
he was laid in chains of iron and his soul entered into iron.
Until his word [to his cruel brothers] came true until the word of the Lord tried and tested him.”
When the promise seems like a fantasy we must keep trusting, we need to endure. His promise
is true, it will come to pass. The Lord is not a man that lies. His word is sure and if He promised
it will come to pass. Difficulty doesn’t mean the promise won’t come to pass.
There is nothing that can stop the word of God from coming to pass.
Hold on in the storm. Endure, put your faith in Him.
He will fulfill what He promised you.
Bless you, friends…
