When Moses encountered resistance in his efforts to communicate God’s command to Pharaoh, Exodus 5:22 tells us that Moses went back to God. Bob Merritt (When Life’s Not Working) explains: “When you’re in the pit, there’s no gimmick, slogan, or saying that will get you out- sometimes there’s not even another person who can help. Sometimes the only thing you can do is go right back to God.”
The author concludes by saying that prayer is an important component of this process. He comments that generally prayers get answered when people get moving, as opposed to passive resignation to adversity, and when people persevere.
