“Did we not tell you this in Egypt, when we said, ‘Leave us alone. Let us serve the Egyptians’? Far better for us to be the slaves of the Egyptians than to die in the desert.”
How many times in our lives does it seem that just when things go well…something happens to pull the proverbial rug out from under us? Many times it’s then when we rail against God for supposedly leaving us. The Israelites were jubilant in following Moses out of Egypt after hundreds of years of captivity until Pharaoh changed his mind about releasing them and sent hundreds of Egyptian soldiers after them in the desert. So the Israelites turned on Moses and on God in despair. There are peaks and valleys in our lives. Hard times can come due to the free will choices we make or others make…or just by chance. The story of salvation history shows us that despite the people turning against God…God never left them. Over and over and over God remained loyal while the people did not. Jesus showed us the extreme lengths God will go in the face of total rejection to say, “I love you. I forgive you. I will never let you go…never.” If you’re struggling…you can either let your struggles make you bitter…or make you better. Your struggle is the exact place where you will encounter the unconditional love of God ready to lift you, transform you, and lead you to a better place. God is always with you!
