8 And I will bring you to the land I swore with uplifted hand to give to Abraham, to Isaac and to Jacob. I will give it to you as a possession. I am the Lord.’”
9 Moses reported this to the Israelites, but they did not listen to him because of their discouragement and harsh labor. – Ex 6
God is about to speak some great things to Israel. The problem is that they will not listen. The harsh pace of their lives is silencing the voice of God.
I work hard. You work hard. All God’s children work hard. Some would say that our labor and our pace of life is “harsh.” Could it be that the pace of our life is limiting the voice of God?

What is one thing that you could say “no” to in order to slow the pace of life? Comment below.
