After Moses and Aaron met with Pharaoh and asked for him to let the people go, things only got worse for the Israelites.  They were forced to work even harder and they blamed Moses.  “Then Moses turned to the LORD and said, “O Lord, why have you done evil to this people? Why did you ever send me?  For since I came to Pharaoh to speak in your name, he has done evil to this people, and you have not delivered your people at all.” (Exodus 5:22-23)  We know how their time of slavery would end up, but at this time they did not know.  God works in ways and on a schedule that we do not always understand.  With faith, prayer, and patience we can live in service to Him and know that He will provide what is best for us.
