Time (2)

Our Bible Reading reminds us that we may need to wait for God’s help. The Israelites were living far away from their home. Troubles happened, and they did not know what to do. They were very sad, so they prayed to God.
Verse 23 tells us, “A long time passed and that king of Egypt died. But the people of Israel were still forced to work very hard. They cried for help, and God heard them.” But God did not help the people right away. The Israelites waited for God to help them at just the right time.
Sometimes we wonder if God is really paying attention to our prayers. We become tired and afraid. If God does not answer our prayers right away, we may feel that He doesn’t love us. But we should not give up. We should keep praying and believing that God will help us. He always knows the best time to give us help.
Maybe you are waiting today for God to answer your prayers. Trust Him to do what is best for you. Wait for His perfect time.
