In Israel’s eyes, Egypt’s animosity was a terrible thing. Yet, it was orchestrated by God to ultimately bring freedom to His people. What may appear to be bad just may be something that God, in His wisdom, has allowed for our ultimate good.
No matter what we’re going through, He is good, His mercy endures forever. This is cause enough for us to give thanks in any circumstance.
This verse got me to thinking: how is making His wonderful works remembered an act of graciousness and compassion? One way I’ve thought about is that having a record of God’s faithfulness in the past gives us hope for what lies ahead—for we are serving the God Who never changes!
