The Israelites had a burden and it was the Egyptians. The more the Egyptians tried to bring down the Israelites, the more the Israelites grew.
Without burdens, how can I grow?
God tells us in the Bible that we must be thankful in all circumstances. (1 Thessalonians 5:18) This verse in Exodus reminds me how we can be thankful for our burdens.
My burdens make me stronger, develop my character, and give me joy when I overcome them. For it is when I am at my lowest that overcoming feels the best.
