The world is a tough taskmaster. It beats me down; takes away my self confidence; afflicts me with doubt. I am plagued by worry of what is to come. Fatigue overtakes me as demands increase. Brick by brick I struggle to keep up. I cry out to the Lord, seeking His salvation.
The LORD said, “I have surely seen the affliction of My people who are in Egypt, and have given heed to their cry because of their taskmasters, for I am aware of their sufferings (Exodus 3:7, NASB).”
Fall before the Lord and seek relief from your affliction. This world tries to consume you, but He cannot be consumed. The Lord God is eternal, an ever present help. Remove your sandals for before you is holy ground. He is the great I Am, “the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob (3:6).” He is your God. Come before Him. He seeks you. He hears your cries for help.

“The LORD, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you.’ This is My name forever, and this is My memorial-name to all generations (Exodus 3:15).”
