God Remembers-God Hears-God delivers

EXODUS 6: 1-8

Then the Lord said unto Moses, Now shalt thou see what I will do to Pharaoh: for with a strong hand shall he let them go, and with a strong hand shall he drive them out of his land.

And God spake unto Moses and said unto him, I am the Lord:

An I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob by the name of God Almighty but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them.

And I have also established my covenant with them, to give them the land of Canaan, the land of their pilgrimage, wherein they were strangers.

And I have also heard the groaning of the children of Israel whom the Egyptians keep in bondage; and I have remebered my covenant.

Wherefore say unto the children of Israel, I am the Lord and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will rid you out of their bondage, and I will redeem you with a stretched out arm, and with great judgments:

And I will take you to me for a people, and I will be to you a God: and ye shll know that I am the Lord your God, which bringeth you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians.

And I will bring you in unto the land, concerning the which I did swear to give it to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob; and I will give it you for an heritage: I am the Lord.

God reveals to Moses another name by which He is called- He said but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known...according to strongs Jehovah means self existent, eternal. God is revealing to Moses who He is- He is the Lord, He is JEHOVAH, He is the God who appeared to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. God is telling Moses what He had done and will do- He established His covenant with them to give them the land of Canaan, He hears the groaning of the Children of Israel who are in bondage and He remembers His covenant. He will bring them out of bondage, He will redeem. He will be their God and bring them into the land that He swore to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. God keeps His word, He hears our cry and remembers the covenant. How wonderful that God hears our cry and receives our prayers because of the shed blood of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. We have access to the Father because of Jesus. When we seek God in our prayers they are heard because He remembers His covenant with us, He remembers that Jesus died for our sins and therefore whoever believes in Him has eternal life. God certainly cares and certainly hears our prayers but let us also remember the cost of the covenant we have with God the Father.

A great reminder that God is our maker, and came down in the form of a man, Jesus, died on calvary for our sins and a home eternal, and sent a comforter, the Holy Spirit to help us through the difficult times. Our Senior Adult Pastor said the above last night at our Golden Couples dinner. I had never thought of it that way even though I knew and accepted the Trinity (all three in one). We are truly blessed. It's sad to think of the people who don't believe in the Heavenly Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. They will miss out on a lot.
Thanks for sharing,

I love this Debrah. I was recently studying Moses and how God brought the Israelites out of slavery and into the promise land. It also coinsides with circumstances in my life right now and I find that He continues to bring this to my attention.
