Exodus 5:22: So Moses went back to the LORD and protested, “Why have you mistreated your own people like this? Why did you send me?”


Trouble happens to everyone. Sooner or later, trouble will invade your life. Work, school, church, your family, your friends. Trouble finds us all.


In Moses’ day, God had commanded the leader to barter with Pharaoh(the king of Egypt) and lead the Jews out of slavery. Moses, after trying to get out of the whole thing, finally went along with God. When Moses appeared before Pharaoh, things got worse. Pharaoh told Moses to get out of his palace, and then he ordered that the Jews make bricks without straw. This was a dire problem, because without straw the bricks were much harder to make through holding the clay together.


When Moses got back to the Jewish leaders, they screamed at him. How could he do this to them? What was he thinking?


Moses ran into his tent and asked God to fire him. “How could you do this to ME?” he cried.


In the end, though, God showed Moses he was completely in charge. He made it possible for the Jews to escape from Egypt, but only after more trouble resulted.


Having troubles is not always a bad thing. God sometimes sends them for one reason: so we’ll run to God and ask for his help. Do you have trouble today? Maybe you need to go to God and get some divine help!


Prayer: Father, let me never forget that you are there to help me. Amen.
