The people of Israel believed in the Lord and His two messengers (Moses and Aaron), but as the evidence of affliction arose the belief turned to doubt and lack of direction (Exodus 4:31, 5:20-21). Moses was very discouraged, but the Lord told him to press on. He did. In the Lord’s time the people of Israel were redeemed from Egyptian bondage. LESSON: in the Lord’s time and by His direction redemption, recovery, remission, and reward results.
