The SAME- Yesterday, Today, and Forever!

God Hears Israel's Groaning

During those many days the king of Egypt died, and the people of Israel groaned because of their slavery and cried out for help. Their cry for rescue from slavery came up to God. And God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob. God saw the people of Israel—and God knew.

The Lord still sees us in our afflictions or wanderings...He sees us when we cry ourselves to sleep...when our heart aches...when we are filled with anxiety...when we feel like we can't go on. I am so thankful that the same God who saw Israels afflictions, sees ours to. He does not change and when His child cries out...HE HEARS, and He is faithful..He stands ready to answer. I have to know that!

Hebrews 13:8
8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.

James 1:17
17 Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows (emphasis mine).
