Friday, June 5

During all their distress it was distressing to him.—Isa. 63:9.


Jehovah does more than just feel compassion for his servants who suffer. He takes action to help them. For example, when the Israelites were suffering as slaves in Egypt, Jehovah understood their pain and felt moved to relieve it. Jehovah said to Moses: “I have certainly seen the affliction of my people . . . , and I have heard their outcry . . . I well know the pains they suffer. I will go down to rescue them out of the hand of the Egyptians.” (Ex. 3:7, 8) Because Jehovah felt compassion for his people, he freed them from slavery. Centuries later, in the Promised Land, the Israelites faced enemy attacks. How did Jehovah respond? He “was moved to pity over their groaning caused by those who oppressed them and those who were treating them abusively.” Again, empathy moved Jehovah to help his people. He sent judges to save the Israelites from their enemies.—Judg. 2:16, 18. w19.03 15 ¶4-5

You can't walk with God while holding hands with the Devil.

There's not a whole lot of Oppression going on in the United States where I live so we'll probably have to wait till it gets so bad that many of us are praying to Jehovah and groaning over the situation that is to come with that in mind great tribulations not starting anytime soon
