After forty years, the Pharaoh who wanted Moses killed (because of what he did to the Egyptian taskmaster) had died. “The Israelites were groaning under the bondage and cried out,” the story tells us, “and their cry for help from the bondage rose up to God.”
God had been silent for all these years because the Israelites did not askfor anything. This is a common problem for us. Jesus will later remind us to “Ask and you shall receive”. But if we don’t ask for anything, we don’t get anything, and then we wonder “Why not?”
It’s become a cliché to say that most of us don’t get what we want out of life because we never figured out what we wanted. In general, clichés become clichés because they’re true. That’s why they get repeated so much.
