Exodus 2:23-25 (NKJV)
Now it happened in the process of time that the king of Egypt died. Then the children of Israel groaned because of the bondage, and they cried out; and their cry came up to God because of the bondage. So God heard their groaning, and God remembered His covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob. And God looked upon the children of Israel, and God acknowledged them.
Key Phrase: God will remember
Eccl 3:1-8 reminds us that “To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven…” These words serve as a reminder that our God is a God of order and purpose. He has a plan concerning each of us and in the fullness of time will reveal His Glory.
In a season, the children of Isreal felt forgotten and abandoned, but they never stopped crying out to God. In a season, God heard their cry and acknowledged them. Just as there is a time to sow and a time to harvest, there is a time to ask and a time to receive, a time to stand still and a time to run forward, a time to be cast aside and a time to be celebrated, but all according to God’s divine plan.
In the process of time……. God remembered Hannah (1 Samuel 1:20) and turned her season of barreness into fruitfulness.
In the process of time…….God remembered Mordecai (Esther 6) and turned his season of humiliation into honour.
In the process of time…….God remembered Joseph (Genesis 41:9 ) and turned his season of chains into royalty.
In the process of time… God will remember us, dont stop asking, dont stop praying, our season of harvest is certain.
Father, no matter the times we are in, teach us to persevere in the place of prayer, never fainting. Lord, please bring us quickly into our season of celebration- turn every tear to laughter and every seed to fruit. Mostly Lord, let our season of rememberance start now – open every shut book, disturb the sleep of kings, remember every good seed your children have sown and let testimonies be in abundance. In Jesus name.
