27 Jul Exodus 3:7-8

The Lord said, “I have surely seen the affliction of My people who are in Egypt, and have given heed to their cry because of their taskmasters, for I am aware of their sufferings. So I have come down to deliver them from the power of the Egyptians, and to bring them up from that land to a good and spacious land, to a land flowing with milk and honey, to the place of the Canaanite and the Hittite and the Amorite and the Perizzite and the Hivite and the Jebusite.

God knew of the sufferings of the Israelites and how they had pleaded for His help. Here, He establishes His motive, purpose, and plan for Moses. Often, in tough times, we feel God is far away or non-existent. God is consistently aware of His people, and He hears the groans of His people when they cry out, as suggested in Luke 18.
