The LORD said, ‘I have indeed seen the misery of my people … I have heard them crying out because of their slave drivers, and I am concerned about their suffering. So, I have come down to rescue them … and to bring them up out of that land into a good and spacious land, a land flowing with milk and honey…”

Exodus 3:7-8

To the unbeliever embittered by oppression, who questions how a God of love can allow it, the answer is given by many such episodes. Man, deceived by Satan, is responsible for mishandling authority and power, while God is not unaware or uncaring. Rather he awaits the right time to act.
