        God's command to Pharaoh, "Let my people go!" 
reveals that Israel was in bondage. God wanted them to 
be free that they might serve Him. Instead the result 
was more bondage for Israel. Unfortunately, the people 
of Israel looked to Pharaoh for help and not to the 
Lord, who had promised to deliver them. God's purpose in 
allowing Pharaoh to oppress Israel was that His power 
and glory might be known to the world.

        The stage is set: Pharaoh has refused God's 
command, and now God will send His judgments on Egypt. 
He would fulfill His promise in Genesis 12:3 to judge 
the nations that persecute the Jews. He would reveal His 
power, His wrath, and His greatness, showing that the 
gods of Egypt were false gods and that Jehovah was the 
true God.

        Moses certainly must have known discouragements, 
but he took his problems to the Lord. God sustained him 
and gave him the victory. We Christians serve the same 
God Moses served. When situations come into your life 
that cause you confusion and depression, do not be 
discouraged. We should never doubt God. His greatest 
desire for His children is to bless and lead them. No 
matter what the situation, God will see you through it. 
The song write expressed it so well when he wrote, 
"Through it all, through it all, I've learned to trust 
in Jesus, I've learned to trust in God." God loves you! 
He will sustain you "through it all" and give you 
complete victory.
