An English theologian by the name of Thomas Fuller in 1650, is credited to saying that it gets darker before dawn. If you are familiar with the rhythm, you will feel a sense of frustration when things seem to get worse just before they improve. Amos 5:8 says that He who made Pleiades and Orion turns midnight into dawn, and darkness into light. Jacob would tell you that his toughest night was the one before he had a change of name to Israel. The following day, he saw the sun rise. The lament of these leaders underscores the entire feelings of the people of Israel. If you are experiencing tough moments, remember Psa.46:5 that God will not fail. He will help you at the break of day. Jesus is the Good News that was being sent to deliver us from the darkness of sin with his light. Here is the real good news. Isn’t it providence for the leaders to have met them as soon as they left Pharaoh? Imagine if they had reached the people with that spirit of depression.Moses would have had a revolt. The next verse says Moses returned unto the Lord. That’s the answer. Return to the Lord and let Him know how you feel. God will not give up on his word to answer you.
And they met Moses and Aaron, who stood in the way, as they came forth from Pharaoh: And they said unto them, The Lord look upon you, and judge; because ye have made our savour to be abhorred in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of his servants, to put a sword in their hand to slay us. Exodus 5:20-21 KJV
