Getting To Contented

(Exodus 5:18-23 ) Go therefore now, and work; for there shall no straw be given you, yet shall ye deliver the tale of bricks. And the officers of the children of Israel did see that they were in evil case, after it was said, Ye shall not minish ought from your bricks of your daily task. 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. And Moses returned unto the LORD, and said, Lord, wherefore hast thou so evil entreated this people? why is it that thou hast sent me? For since I came to Pharaoh to speak in thy name, he hath done evil to this people; neither hast thou delivered thy people at all. Are you getting content and settled about the way things are shaping up in this country, in the world? If you are don't be. No jobs, not enough money to pay the bills or by food, more of our freedoms being taking away by the government, Muslim terrorist Trying to insert their religion and ways in our lives and many other things! Could things get worse. Yes things can get worse and they will before the rapture of God's Saints. But let me remind you: "There is a light house". There is deliverance on its way! Remember the narrative of the exodus from Egypt by the Hebrews? It is a story of miracles, yet in the start of this true story when Moses first came before Pharaoh to free the Hebrew Children from slavery, the Israelites were tempted and became mad because of the hardships that were laid upon them. They showed their anger at Moses because suddenly they were told that they would have to gather their own straw for making bricks. Things got really hard for them. They were concerned about offending their slave-masters, fearing that they would slay them. They had no spiritual vision at all. The Hebrews were so accustomed to their slavery that they didn't want their lives and routines interfered with in spite of the fact that freedom was staring them in the face. The Hebrews were Prepared to accept this wretched way of life, they totally failed to take in or realize the freedom that was looking them in the face and soon to be there. They were thinking about the short-term price: the extra suffering and great pressure that would be before their freedom and deliverance. The same can happen to us. It has often been said "The darkest night is just before the dawn". We are children of "The Most High God" and for you that are down hearted and depressed just remember that God will deliver you the same as He did the Hebrews. Satan can see his rapidly coming defeat and he is working overtime to stop it. Don't let yourself accept any kind of burden or bondage that you know is of the Devil, but rather do this: "Seek and believe for the freedom that God has given us through His Son. Stand on the promises of God and believe in them. Have that mustard seed faith and watch it grow to were you will be helping other people and winning lost souls. LOOK UP AND SEE WHAT IS DRAWING NIGH!
