Small problems need only small answers. But when we face great problems, God has an opportunity to exercise His great power. As the Hebrews' troubles grew steadily worse, God planned to intervene with His mighty power and perform great miracles to deliver them.
How big are your problems? Big problems put you in perfect position to watch God give big answers. When Moses gave God's message to the people, they were too discouraged to listen. The Hebrews didn't want to hear any more about God and His promises because the last time they listened to Moses, all they got was more work and great suffering.
Sometimes a clear message from God is followed by a period when no change in the situation is apparent. During that time, seeming setbacks may turn people away from wanting to hear more about God. If you are a leader, don't give up. Keep bringing more people God's message as Moses did. See beyond temporary setbacks and reversals. God is faithful. He will deliver you from your struggles...in His grip.
Coach's tip - Some people give a tenth. A tenth of what they ought to give.
