Nehemiah 9:9

by Rev Joel Yong

Nehemiah 9:9 states: “You saw the affliction of our fathers in Egypt, and heard their cry by the Red Sea.”

The Israelite slaves were in Egypt for almost 400 years. I wonder if they doubted if God heard their prayers for freedom. But in retrospect, we now know He delivered them with great acts of miracles for He had heard their cries. God is able to save us, and willing to save us – let’s not mistake His silence for a lack of care or ability. Trust in Him.
