I love the scriptures!!!
Let my people go! It begins...
Humility seems to be the message in both of these passages. Humility of the Israelites in realizing that Heavenly Father had heard their prayers and the humility of the Savior in telling the Father, not my will but thine be done.
In both instances we also see the concept of things getting worse before they get better. The Pharaoh taking away the straw from the Israelites and yet demanding that the same amount of bricks be brought forth as when they were given the straw. And Christ facing the Garden and the mocking and ridicule of the elders of the church and the betrayal of his disciples. Very dark times to be had before they were to be delivered and God's be done in the deliverance of the Israelites and, in Christ, deliverance of all mankind.
Gethsemane is something Christ had to go through alone. Likewise we may need to go through our own Gethsemane alone. Yet we may have faith that Father knows and will deliver us in the end and we will be victorious if we are faithful.
