God Is Always At Work

We trust that God is always at work,
Though our affliction always does lurk;
The Israelites experienced this firsthand,
It appeared that God’s head was in the sand;
A command was given for all sons to die,
But the daughters gladly made it go awry;
Jochebed saved Moses following the law,
Pharoah’s daughter saved because she saw;
Her heart was filled with compassionate grace,
Moses would now live in a different place;
Raised in his history by his mother,
Becoming an adult under another;
Knowing that he was called to deliver,
But needing to wait on the True Gift Giver;
Taking matters into his own hands,
Moses tried to deliver with his own plans;
Egypt and Israel both utterly rejected,
Moses landed in Midian utterly dejected;
But God’s sovereignty was clearly intentional,
As His Providence was seemingly incidental;
God heard the cry of His people in prayer,
Working because He was intimately aware;
Using rejection God would bring salvation,
But it came through Christ and His incarnation;
Despised and rejected by sons and daughters,
Bearing God’s wrathful, grief-stricken waters;
We can trust God as we daily cry out,
Even as our hearts want to nothing but doubt;
Moses points us to Jesus, who is better and true,
Our Deliverer has graciously made us new!
