Today’s Bible Reading: Exodus 1-3
Be that as it may, this is really a story about God. In these opening chapters we can conclude that God sees His people, He hears His people when they cry out to Him, He is compassionate, He gives good gifts to those who fear Him (the midwives that he blesses with families of their own), He is a God who acts in history, He does amazing things with fire, He will deliver his people with a mighty hand. A mighty hand that we shall see in the next few chapters is greater than Pharaoh and all the gods of Egypt. We even learn His name-I AM WHO I AM. He just is, He is LORD (YHWH.) Amongst the gods of Egypt His name will stand alone.
To God be the glory,
