Have you ever felt like no matter what you do, life just keeps getting worse? Even when you are doing everything the right way, things seem to be getting worse. We see a similar pattern in the life of Moses..
In Exodus 3 we read how God reveals Himself to Moses at the burning bush. He gives Moses a set of instructions, and Moses sets out for Egypt, doing everything exactly to the letter as God instructed him to do it.
But even though Moses has the details, personally delivered and confirmed from God, Moses fails. Moses does everything perfectly and NONE OF IT WORKS. Pharaoh does not let the people go, but instead makes their lives worse.
This is the ‘Moses’ pattern of faith: Things are bad… Moses trusts God… Things get worse.
