      Dearly Beloved,
      THE SAME NUMBER OF BRICKS WITHOUT THE SUPPLY OF STRAW
      “You are no longer to supply the people with straw for making bricks; let them go and gather their own straw. But require them to make the same number of bricks as before; don't reduce the quota” (Exodus 5:7-8 NIV).
      One of the cruelest treatments of human beings by other fellow human beings was recorded in Exodus Chapter Five. The Egyptians were maltreating the people of Israel because the former saw the latter as a national threat. The latter sought reprieve and this led to more maltreatment: the Israelites were to continue making bricks without the usual provision of straw and their daily production quota remained the same. They protested to Pharaoh, the king of Egypt, who was the architect of this maltreatment, but he was not ready to listen.  The Israelites thought that their God would not fight for them, but He did fight and rescue them from these tyrants.
      There are many ways in which people are maltreating other people today. Such people think that they can go on in their nefarious and inhuman acts against their fellow human beings unpunished. So, they unabatedly continue in such acts even with pride. Most of the time, the maltreated people may think that there is no remedy for them. However, God will indeed fight for them. As He did fought for the Israelites and delivered them from such tyrants.
      Are you been maltreated in any way? Are you required to produce the same number of bricks without the supply of straw like the Israelites? Does it seem as if God is not fighting for you? He will indeed fight for you. The Psalmist declared: “Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life; you stretch out your hand against the anger of my foes, with your right hand you save me” (138:7 NIV).
      However, if you are the oppressor, remember that there is Somebody (God) that will repay you accordingly one day.
      In His service,

      I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will
      have sufficient courage so that now as always Christ will be exalted
      in my body, whether by life or by death. FOR TO ME, TO LIVE IS CHRIST
      AND TO DIE IS GAIN (Philippians 1:20-21, NIV).
