Christian Devotional – September 11, 2013


Exodus 1:12–But the more they were oppressed, the more they multiplied and spread; so the Egyptians came to dread the Israelites.


The Israelites had done nothing wrong, but yet just the fact that there were several of them resulted in the Egyptians fearing them. We do not always do anything to result in the difficulties that we face, but God is always bigger than those difficulties. Just like the Israelites, He can work so that we flourish and grow even in the midst of the trials and oppressions. God is still with us and still loves us and we can still trust Him to bring us through the oppressive times we face.


Father, sometimes I go through things and I don’t understand why. I know that You are still God in those situation and I will trust You that You know what is best in each and every situation for me. Even when I am feared and oppressed for reasons that I cannot explain, I know You are still in control and I will trust You.
