REVEALED WORD TODAY
// READ: EXODUS 1:9-14 //
9 “Look,” he said to his people, “the Israelites have become far too numerous for us. 10 Come, we must deal shrewdly with them or they will become even more numerous and, if war breaks out, will join our enemies, fight against us and leave the country.”
11 So they put slave masters over them to oppress them with forced labor, and they built Pithom and Rameses as store cities for Pharaoh. 12 But the more they were oppressed, the more they multiplied and spread; so the Egyptians came to dread the Israelites 13 and worked them ruthlessly. 14 They made their lives bitter with harsh labor in brick and mortar and with all kinds of work in the fields; in all their harsh labor the Egyptians worked them ruthlessly.
When God favours a man like He did for the children of Israel, He should expect people to start dealing WISELY with him. This is because of fear; in this passage, the Egyptians started dealing wisely with the children of Israel because they multiplied and are mightier.
PRAYER: Pray for the wisdom of God to handle increase and multiplication.
