Do you ever wonder if God understands what is happening in your life? Does He hear your cries? Does He see your tears? Does He care? God's people were slaves in Egypt, but God had not forgotten them. Notice what He told Moses. "I have surely seen the oppression of My people who are in Egypt, and have heard their cry because of their taskmasters, for I know their sorrows" (Exo. 3:7). God says, "I have seen...I have heard...I know." Better than that, God then said, "So I have come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them to a good and large land, to a land flowing with milk and honey" (v. 8). Yes, God understands. And He intervenes. He enters the big picture. He came down to deliver them and to bring them to the Promised Land. He will do the same for you. Do you remember the song "God Understands"? Here is how it goes.
God understands your sorrows, He sees the falling tear; And whispers, 'I am with thee," Then falter not, nor fear. God understands your heartaches, He knows the bitter pain; O, trust Him in the darkness, You cannot trust in vain. God understands your weakness, He knows the tempter's power; And He will walk beside you however dark the hour. He understands your longing, your deepest grief He shares; then let Him bear your burden, He understands and cares! (Oswald Smith)
