And the Lord said, “I have surely seen the affliction of My people who are in Egypt, and have given heed to their cry because of their taskmasters, for I am aware of their sufferings.”
I thought of all that the world and in particular, God’s people today, Christians, were going through. I thought of wars where innocent Christians were being killed and of enslavement or persecution of Christians by those who hate Christ and what He stands for. I thought of the crippling power of illnesses, disease, drugs, and broken marriages and families. I thought of people being mentally taken advantage of by false doctrine, commercialism, and the like. I thought of lives being ruined by sexual, physical, mental, and/or social abusers. I thought of the lies of the Enemy that were devastating lives. I thought of dictatorship or the movement towards it as well as the goal of Islam to take over the world. And I applied this verse and God’s words to all of that, and to us today.
We need to take some time on our own to answer these questions and then cry out for help to God asking to be “released from our own taskmasters”. My prayer is that you will have the willingness and courage to do so. And then to do whatever you know you have to in order to stay free.
