Day Two: You Have Seen and Heard

Exodus 3:7-8a (NIV) – The Lord said, “I have indeed seen the misery of my people in Egypt. I have heard them crying out because of their slave drivers, and I am concerned about their suffering. So I have come down to rescue them.’

I have seen. I have heard. I am concerned. I have come down. The language in today’s passage shows that God’s rescue in our lives comes directly from the Lord. Our salvation comes with His very presence. How often must the Israelites have wondered during their misery in Egypt, does the Lord see, does the Lord hear, does the Lord care? How often have we also wondered and thought similar things? As we see in today’s passage, the Israelites are about to experience God’s rescue with His mighty power, thus assuring them that He has indeed seen and heard their cries.

Today, may we be assured that the Lord has indeed heard and seen us in our need, and has come to our rescue. Spend time today praying for specific areas of your life where you need God’s rescue afresh. Worship with the song, “Another in the Fire” by Hillsong.

Prayer: Father, we thank you that you have indeed seen and heard our cries. Your love and care for us is constant, and we pray for your blessing and rescue in all the areas that we are in need—jobs, relationships, health, and ministry. In Jesus’ name, amen.
