There are countless stories about people who were miss-used and miss-treated at some point in their lives. Some had those experiences at work, others at home or in any place where people gather in large numbers. These experiences can have negative side effects in your life.
In the book of Exodus, we find a group of people who were enslaved and miss-treated by those who held them captive. But a wise person said, Things will not always be this way. The longest rope has an end and one day, one day, it will make full circle. It will end. And one day, God decided it was time to deliver His children.
After several visits to Pharaoh, he finally agreed to allow the children of Israel to leave Egypt. But God did not allow them to leave Egypt empty handed. Exodus 12:36 NLT says, “The Lord caused the Egyptians to look favorably on the Israelites, and they gave the Israelites whatever they asked for. So they stripped the Egyptians of their wealth!” God made the very people who enslaved them to change their financial status.
Look at that! He is the God of the turnaround! You never know when God will turn things around in your life! Here, these people were slaves under the control of slave masters who made their life difficult. Their situation seemed hopeless. Even when Moses went to Pharaoh, the people thought that change would never come.
Psalm 30:5 says, “Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning.” Night is a season of weeping. It may be long but it has an end. Night gives way to the morning, another season; a season characterized by joy. Don’t be discouraged about the length of your night; rejoice because your joy is on its way in the morning.
