Exodus 1:7-22 – CHANGES IN EGYPT
When things are going well, we never know when things will change.
While residing in Egypt Israel faced changes that made it exceedingly difficult.
A NEW PRODUCTIVITY – Vs. 7
A NEW PROBLEM – Vs. 8
Israel was respected in Egypt because of the work of Joseph many years before. Evidently a new ruling family took over, and did not know or remember Joseph. Israel went from being a friend to being a threat.
A NEW PERSECUTION – Vss. 9-11, 13-16, 22
A NEW PROTECTION – Vss. 12, 17-21
God protected his own. He still does!
