Exodus 2:23-25 (NLT)
23 Years passed, and the king of Egypt died. But the Israelites continued to groan under their burden of slavery. They cried out for help, and their cry rose up to God. 24 God heard their groaning, and he remembered his covenant promise to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. 25 He looked down on the people of Israel and knew it was time to act.
Father as I think about life and the various experiences we all encounter on a daily basis, I am so glad that you hear our prayers, remember your promises, see our needs, know our concerns and intervene at the appropriate time. The great example of this is when you sent your Son: “….Christ came at just the right time….” Romans 5:6 (NLT) This principle of timing at the right moment is also mentioned: “Psalm 102:13 (ESV) “the appointed time has come.”
Our job is simple and at the same time challenging and it is this: “I wait for the LORD, my soul waits, and with hope I wait for his word. Psalm 130:5 (GW)
Thank you Father for such personal, compassionate and timely care. In the Name of your beloved Son and our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
