Good news for burdened people

Written by Michael A. Otkins Sr. on .

It appears lately that life has fed us an excess baggage of affliction that impedes action or progress.

We are oppressed, overcharged, and overwhelmed by a pile of problems and burden that self, people, and politicians have caused, or became vexed by careless decisions that we made.

Exodus 6:1-8 gives us good news in the mist of our trouble. The good news is this: God always send Moses to Pharoah.

Moses represents deliverance                         Pharaoh represents affliction

Moses represents freedom                                    Pharaoh represents imprisonment

Moses represents salvation                                     Pharaoh represents suppression

God sent Moses (liberty) to Pharaoh (oppress), because God cares when we are troubled.

This exposition reveals the fact that God cares about our burdens and our bondage. Concerning our BURDENS, God said, “I WILL BRING YOU OUT FROM UNDER THE BURDENS OF THE EGYPTIANS.” God gives us a promise for hurting times because he knows about our pain. The good news is your burdens and my burdens are important to God. The Hebrew writer says, “HE GIVES GRACE TO HELP IN TIMES OF NEED” (Hebrews 4:16). Not only does God care about our burdens, He also is concerned about our bondage. Verse 6, I WILL RID YOU OF THEIR BONDAGE”. The difference between burdens and bondage is burdens are concerns, your cares, and problems. Bondage is control by a person or substance. God wants to rid you of what controls you. Is it alcohol, drugs, a temper, or fears that limit your usefulness?

Finally, God says in verse 6, “I WILL REDEEM YOU”. God will free us from the burden and bondage according to the scriptures, the savior, and by the Spirit. Come to Christ in faith, and he will lift those burdens and bondage. “Come unto me, all ye that are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. (Matthew 11:28, 30).

He counted me faithful.
