Read Exodus 2
In this passage we see that God is faithful to His promises and to His people. In the book of Genesis, God made a covenant with Abram (later to be renamed Abraham) to make of Him a great nation that would have its own land and would be a blessing to the world. Throughout the book of Genesis this plan is threatened on many occasions, yet God is faithful to his promise and his people.
When we come to the beginning of the book of Exodus, we see the people of Israel in the land of Egypt and threatened by a new Pharaoh to be destroyed. Yet ironically, as Pharaoh tries to destroy the people, God grows the people substantially. The chapter ends with a cliffhanger of sorts as Pharaoh makes another attempt to destroy God's people by commanding all of Egypt to throw all Hebrew baby boys into the Nile river.
Will God be faithful to Israel? Will He be faithful to us? The answer we should cling to is absolutely yes! He has never failed to keep his promise before and He never will! Ultimately we see the greatest display of this faithfulness in Jesus, the great descendant of Israel, who provides the blessing of salvation to the world.
