God chose to wait 430 years to deliver the Israelites out of Egypt. Could He have delivered them on the first day? Yes. But He chose not to. So where was God in the calamity – the slavery and infanticide of the male babies being thrown into the river? He was there, in the midst of it all. Even in calamity and tragedy and horror, God is still God, and God is still good. He’s in control and doing something, even if we can’t see or understand it. He was well aware of their plight and ours. He has not forgotten His people, and we need to learn to trust Him in every circumstance.
