My answers to study questions for BSF Life of Moses Lesson 1 Day 3 Exodus 1:22
6. a.  Since his previous measures failed, Pharaoh now enlisted everyone in his effort to control the Hebrews.

In response to the rapid growth in the Hebrew population, Pharaoh issued a command to his people.

Pharaoh: Every boy who is born to the Hebrews must be thrown into the Nile, and every girl is to be left alive. Exodus 1:22 (Voice)

b.  When have your problems increased, even as you trusted and obeyed God? I’m there right now. I have several challenging mandates from the Lord. Writing is the one that often slips through the cracks. Family members make ever-increasing demands on my time. Carving out time to study and write requires diligence, determination, getting up early and/or staying up late.

7.  

Genesis 15:13-14 (Voice) — God is aware of the problem before, during, and after. He is on our side. He has a plan. His plan includes judgment of our adversaries, deliverance at the appointed time, and abundant financial provision. The down side—God saw the big picture. It may not happen in our lifetime. It doesn’t all depend on us either. Those darn Amorites! God even has patience with our adversaries.

Isaiah 43:1-4 The Voice 

He will never leave us nor forsake us. Through the trials, we have nothing to fear. Persevere. He loves us. He will gladly give up our adversaries in exchange for our freedom.

“Because you are special to Me and I love you, I gladly give up other peoples in exchange for you; They are trivial by comparison to our weighty significance.” Isaiah 43:4 (Voice)

John 16:33 (Voice—God speaks to us through His word, through others, and to us directly through the Holy Spirit. He doesn’t want us to live with fear. He wants us to have peace. He has already triumphed over “this corrupt world order.”

2 Corinthians 1:4, 9 (Voice)

  • Even when the circumstances seem unbearable, we can draw on His comfort.
  • Through hardship, we learn to trust Him completely.
  • After all, He has the power to raise the dead!

8.  a. Even if the Hebrews knew God’s plan, it would have been difficult to endure on a day-to-day basis. But we should keep our eye on the prize as Paul encouraged us to do. Note to self: Focus on the goal!

b. Promises that motivate me to hang in there—

Matthew 28:20b (Voice) — And I will be with you, day after day, to the end of the age.

Daniel 9:4 (Voice— I prayed to the Eternal One my God, praising His greatness and confessing our sins: Lord God, You are great and awesome! You are always faithful to the covenant You made with us. Your unfailing love extends to all who love You and keep Your commandments.

Jeremiah 1:19 (Voice— Eventually, they will all give you trouble, but you will be safe. They will fight you, but they will not win. Remember, I am with you. I promise I will always deliver you.

Hebrews 13:5 (Voice— Keep your lives free from the love of money, and be content with what you have because He has said, “I will never leave you; I will always be by your side.”

2 John 1:3 (Voice— May grace, mercy, and peace from God the Father and Jesus the Anointed, the Father’s own Son, surround you and be with you always in truth and love.

Matthew 24:35
 — 
My words are always true and always here with you. Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will never pass away.
God is ready to overwhelm you with more blessings than you could ever imagine so that you’ll always be taken care of in every way and you’ll have more than enough to share.
