From Bad to Worse:

When God recruited Moses to rescue the Hebrews from slavery, their situation went from bad to worse as well.

There was no doubt that the job needed to be done. The people had been crying out to God to help them (Exodus. 2:23).

Reluctantly, very reluctantly, Moses agreed to appeal to Pharaoh on behalf of the Hebrews. The encounter did not go well.

Instead of releasing the people, Pharaoh increased his unreasonable demands. Moses questioned whether he should have started (Exodus 5:22-23).

Only after a lot more trouble for a lot of people did Pharaoh let the people leave.

Whenever we set out to do something good, even when we’re certain that God wants us to do it,

we shouldn’t be surprised when the situation gets worse before it gets better.

This doesn’t prove that we’re doing the wrong thing;

it just reminds us that we need God to accomplish everything.

There is only One who knows

All the answers to my woes;

He will all my needs supply

When in faith to Him I cry. —Morgan
