“Now may the Lord of peace himself at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you.”
2 Thessalonians 3:16
Peace in every way…
Peace at all times…
even in turmoil
even in waiting
even in stressful life
Peace that transcends all understanding.
Pray about everything. Tell God what you need and thank Him for all he has done.
“Like a city whose walls are broken through is a person who lacks self control.”
– Prov. 25:28
“Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.”
– Titus 2:4-5
Moses was given a task by God. And He gave him proof and signs to perform. God showed Moses what to do to let the Israelites go out of Egypt. With a promise in Exodus 3:12… And God said, “I will be with you. And this will be the sign to you that it is I who have sent you. When you have brought the people out of Egypt, you will worship God on this mountain.”
“I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.”
– Rom. 8:18
In Exodus 1-2, the Israelites were oppressed after Joseph’s death. It takes hard labor and slavery for a long time to see the soon to be glory being revealed to all. Our present suffering is not permanent. We just have to hold on to what God wants to happen and show His glory. If we need to repeatedly plea or pray constantly for freedom from oppression, then do so.
“Now all glory to God, who is able, through His mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.”
– Eph. 3:20
“You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives”
– Gen. 50:20
