Vs. 7-9
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.
8“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.
9“Now, behold, the cry of the sons of Israel has come to Me; furthermore, I have seen the oppression with which the Egyptians are oppressing them.
A. I have Seen--Vs. 7
Psalm 94:9 "He who planted the ear does He not hear, and He who planted the eye does He not see?"
Hebrews 4:13 And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are open and laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do.

How we cast our cares?
1. Conclusivly
2. Completely
3. Confidently
Oswald Chambers
The first thing God does is get us grounded on strong reality and truth. He does this until our cares for ourselves individually have been brought into submission to His way for the purpose of His redemption. Why shouldn’t we experience heartbreak? Through those doorways God is opening up ways of fellowship with His Son. Most of us collapse at the first grip of pain. We sit down at the door of God’s purpose and enter a slow death through self-pity. And all the so-called Christian sympathy of others helps us to our deathbed. But God will not. He comes with the grip of the pierced hand of His Son, as if to say, “Enter into fellowship with Me; arise and shine.” If God can accomplish His purposes in this world through a broken heart, then why not thank Him for breaking yours?
Problem: Seems like God is in a specific place sometimes
Gen. 18:1-2
Is. 6:1-2
But, other Scripture:
1 Kg. 8:27
Prov. 15:3
Jeremiah 23:24 – “’Can a man hide himself in hiding places so I do not see him?’ declares the Lord. ‘Do I not fill the heavens and the earth?’ declares the Lord.”
Exodus 3:10 - “Come, I will send you to Pharaoh that you may bring my people, the children of Israel, out of Egypt.”
Two reasons we don’t want to know our purpose:
1. God’s purpose for my life is usually drastically different than my purpose for my life.
2. God’s purpose for my life is usually a lot bigger than I think I can handle.
Moses response, Exodus 3:11:
“But Moses said to God, ‘Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the children of Israel out of Egypt?’”
Truth: You can’t choose whether life will be difficult or not, but you can choose which difficult you will embrace.
Exodus 3:12 – “But I will be with you.”
3 things omnipresence supplies us with:
A. The Gospel – The power of God working outside of me
Acts 1:8
Romans 10:14
Κηρύσσω, Gk. “to proclaim.”
δύναμις, Gk. “power” from which we get our word, “dynamite”
B. The Gifts – The power of God working through me
Romans 12:6 – “Since we have GIFTS that differ according to the grace given to us, each of us is to exercise them accordingly.”
C. The Gift-Giver – The power of God working in me
What work does He does in me?
1. He brings Jesus’ words to remembrance: John 14:26
2. He intercedes for me when I pray: Roman 8:26
3. He brings hope: Romans 15:13
4. He gives wisdom: 1 Corinthians 2:13
5. He transforms us: 2 Corinthians 3:18
