God’s Response

Exodus 1-2; Ps 88; Luke 21

“…The Israelites groaned in their slavery and cried out, and their cry for help because of their slavery went up to God. God heard their groaning and he remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac and with Jacob. So God looked on the Israelites and was concerned about them.”

Exodus 2:23-25

God’s heart of love goes out to the unloved. Our cries for help are heard by God. God’s action on behalf of his people is in response to their cry and his prior covenant. God heard, God remembered, God looked, and God was concerned. These four actions of God represented the stirring of God’s heart of compassionate loving response to Israel. When no one else was listening, God heard. When all had forgotten, God remembered. When all turned away, God looked. When all ignored Israel’s cries, God was concerned.

Will he respond any less to us in the New Covenant with him?

“Father God, thank you that my cries are heard by you! Thank you for your love and presence in my life today. You are my Deliverer, my Counselor and my Guide. Thank you.”
