Your Deliverance Is At Hand

God had given Moses and Israel ironclad promises of deliverance, so Moses went
to the people with the good news. He performed signs for them and Scripture
says they believed: “Then Moses and Aaron went and gathered together all the
elders of the children of Israel. And Aaron spoke all the words which the Lord
had spoken to Moses. Then he did signs in the sight of the people. So the
people believed; and when they heard that the Lord had visited the children of
Israel and that He had looked on their affliction, then they bowed their heads
and worshiped” (Exodus 4:29-31).

It was a time of hope and rejoicing. Everyone cried, “Hallelujah! We are
finally free! God has heard our cry and our bondage is over. Praise to Him!”

Yet, what happened next? Things only got worse. Israel’s bondage became
absolutely unbearable. They were given no straw for making bricks and they
endured heavy beatings from their taskmasters. Pharaoh raged at Israel’s
leaders, “Get out of my sight. Back to work!”

Moses could not believe this terrible turn of events. He cried out, “God, why
are You treating Your people this way? You haven’t delivered us at all; in
fact, things are worse than ever. You haven’t kept Your Word and nothing You
promised is happening.”

You must understand, the devil knew Israel’s deliverance was right at the
door, so do you think he was going to sit by and not make one last attempt to
wear out God’s people? The worsening of Israel’s condition wasn’t God’s
doing. Rather, it was Satan rushing about madly—hurrying his work before the
hour of deliverance came. Likewise, whenever the devil sees you driven to your
knees, he knows your deliverance is at hand and he is not going to sit by in
those final moments before victory comes! Instead, he will intensify your
temptations. He will enflame people against you and send lying spirits to
falsely accuse you. He will lie to you that God has taken His Holy Spirit from
you, that you are paying for past sins. He will try to flood you with all kinds
of guilt and condemnation.

If you are praying, but things are only getting worse, start rejoicing because
your deliverance is at hand!
