And now, Admonition, brought to you by the Collierville Church of Christ.
Is it all over? Is it all over when someone does us wrong and we don't have the strength to stand up against them? How will we ever survive? How will we ever flourish and grow again? This might have been some of the questions that the Israelites had when the Egyptian started persecuting them afflicting them and giving them struggles that they were barely able to bear. But we read in Exodus chapter one that the more the Egyptians persecuted the Israelites, the faster the Israelites grew, the mightier they grew, the more God blessed them. Here's the point. If you think you're struggling and that you're going to give in and there's no way for God to get you out from under the difficulties you have, maybe you need to spend more time in God's word. Maybe you need to learn what God can do in the midst of affliction.
