Episode 10: Moses: Rescued
About the Life Connection Club
the life connection club kids Has someone ever asked you to do something that you felt unsure about? How did you respond?

God's people, the Israelites, were slaves in Egypt. God was concerned about them and wanted to rescue them. He wanted to give them their own land. So God asked a man named Moses to go to the king of Egypt. God wanted Moses to ask the king to release the people. God wanted the Israelites to trust Him.

Now, use your imagination, as we journey back through time to look at the Life Connection Story "Moses Part 2."

Story noah
(Story adapted from Exodus 4 to 14)

My name is Moses. I am excited to share with you how God worked in my life.

The Israelites were Abraham's descendents through his son Isaac. Isaac's son Israel (also called Jacob) and his family moved to Egypt. Israel had seventy people in his family. But 430 years later, about two million Israelites lived in Egypt! Pharaoh (the king of Egypt) feared that the Israelites might attack the Egyptians and leave the country. So the Egyptians made the Israelites work as slaves. God's people suffered terribly. But God had promised to give the Israelites their own, good land, and He always keeps His promises.

I was an Israelite, but I grew up as an Egyptian in Pharaoh's family. When I was about forty years old, I killed an Egyptian who was mistreating one of my people. Pharaoh found out about it and tried to kill me. So I ran away to live in the land of Midian. In Midian, I got married and worked as a shepherd. For forty years, I took care of my father-in-law's sheep.

Then, one day, God asked me to represent Him and bring His people out of Egypt. He had seen the Israelites' suffering and was concerned about them. He said He would be with me and give me the words to say to the Israelites and to Pharaoh. My brother Aaron would speak for me. God wanted me to trust Him. His power, not mine, would bring the people out of Egypt.

Aaron and I told the Israelites everything that God had told me. When they the Israelites heard that God was concerned about them, they bowed down and worshiped Him.

Pharaoh, however, did not know God and did not want to listen to Him. So the Egyptians beat the Israelites and made them work harder than ever. The Israelites blamed me for their troubles. Suddenly, they didn't want to be rescued-not if it meant extra suffering! I prayed, "God why have the Israelites' troubles gotten worse? Why haven't You rescued them yet?"

God said to tell the Israelites that He would save them from slavery and make them free by His great power. The Israelites would be His people, and He would be their God. He would lead them to the land He promised to Abraham and his descendents. I told the Israelites these things, but because their slavery was hard, they felt discouraged.

God wanted Pharaoh to know that He is the Lord and that no one is like Him. So God sent ten plagues on the Egyptians. First, He turned all the water in Egypt to blood. Then He sent armies of frogs, gnats, and flies. After that, He sent diseases on the Egyptian farm animals. Then He sent skin sores, hail, locusts, and darkness. After some of the plagues, Pharaoh promised to let the people go, but then he changed his mind again.

Finally, God said that each Israelite family needed to roast a lamb and put its blood on the doorframe of their house. Then God went through Egypt and killed every firstborn animal and son. Even Pharaoh's firstborn son died. But God passed over every house that had the blood of the lamb on the doorframe. No one died in those houses.

Pharaoh told me to take the Israelites away. Then God led us out of Egypt. He went ahead of us in a pillar of cloud during the day and a pillar of fire at night. But Pharaoh changed his mind again! God wanted Pharaoh and the Israelites to know that He is God and that only He had rescued the Israelites. He wanted the Israelites to trust Him and know that He is in control. So when Pharaoh's army came after us, God split the Red Sea, and the Israelites walked across the sea on dry land. The Egyptian army chased us, but God made the waters come over them, and they all drowned. The Israelites saw God's power, and they trusted Him.

God loved us. He was concerned about us. He wanted us as His people. He fought to have us. He rescued us. He made plans for us. God still loves and pursues people. He makes good plans for them. He wants people to trust in Him.

noah

Let's thank God for all He has done and for His great love for us. Pray these words of praise to Him:

God, You promised to lead the Israelites to a good land. You planned their rescue from slavery. Your power brought them out of Egypt. They saw Your power and trusted You. Thank You for always keeping Your promises.
