Sermon Notes

Seeing God’s Bigger Plan – Exodus 5-6 

Moses’ obedience to his mission led initially to greater suffering for Israel.   

Israel grumbled about the increased suffering of their lives and failed to see and trust the bigger plan of what God was doing. 

Moses questioned God and asked why He had sent him to Egypt since God had not immediately delivered Israel but had instead allowed their suffering to intensify.  

God mercifully encouraged the weak faith of Moses and of Israel with a reminder of His bigger plan.
