When They Heard

When They Heard

Today’s Scripture Selection: Exodus 4:31

“And when they heard that the LORD was concerned about them and had seen their misery, they bowed down and worshiped.”

It’s a wonderful example of a people in need responding to the news that God cares about them.

Oppressed by harsh taskmasters, trying to keep their faith alive in a foreign land with strange and very different beliefs than their own, they were no doubt very discouraged.

Then via Moses they received the news that “the LORD was concerned about them” and, even more, “had seen their misery.”  How that must have comforted this captive people.

We too need to be reminded that God cares.

It is so easy to become discouraged or have our faith shaken at times.

Have you heard about God’s concern?

I mean, have you really heard – not just with your ears – but with a heart of faith?

If you have, I hope that you are encouraged.  God sees our misery.  God understands our pain and our circumstances, even more than we can.  God cares.

That truth is at the heart of the gospel and at the heart of our release from bondage, whatever its source.
