From today’s reading in the One Year Chronological Bible dated 2/2:

Today God tells Moses to return to Egypt but He calms Moses’s fears by letting him know that the ones who sought his life years ago, after he murdered the Egyptian, are now dead. In addition, He sends his brother Aaron with him as his mouthpiece. So one thing about God is that He ALWAYS does what He says He is going to do. The Lord told Moses to say to Pharaoh, “…’Israel is My son, My firstborn. So I say to you, let My son go that he may serve Me. But if you refuse to let him go, indeed I will kill your son, your firstborn’”. This is exactly what will eventually happen but things get worse for the Israelites before they get better. Their labor is increased greatly and they endure physical beatings. See, the Lord is less concerned about our immediate comfort and more concerned about displaying His glory to the world. God then says, “Therefore say to the children of Israel: ‘I am the Lord; I will bring you out from under your burdens of the Egyptians, I will rescue you from their bondage, and I will take you as My people, and I will be your God. Then you shall know that I am the Lord your God who brings you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians…’” But it is going to be God’s way and in His timing so keep reading to see Him move!

(Exodus 4:18-7:13)
