How God saves His people

God intervention on Israelites
The people of Israel suffered in Egypt. The Egyptian made them work hard, they did not show them any pity at all. However, they increased in number despite the maltreatment and labor by the Egyptians.
Then Moses was born, his mother cared for him for just three months, after which she took him to the river side and laid him there. Afterwards, Moses was discovered by the daughter of Pharaoh, she named him Moses, which means I drew him from water. Then she handed him over to the nurse to care for him. Moses who was Hebrew grew up as an Egyptian prince, because God used Pharaoh’s daughter to save Moses who would later deliver the Israelites.
So God saved the people of Israel through Moses, as he grew he saw how the Israelites were treated. On an occasion, he saw an Egyptian guard beating a Hebrew slave, he became furious, as he tried to save the Israelite, he killed the guard.
God also used Moses to lead the Israelites out of Egypt. He approached king pharaoh that God sent him to tell him to let His people go. Pharaoh did not listen, but after the plague he released them and later pursued them. Which led to the destruction of the Egyptians.
Moses requested from God a leader who will lead the Israelites, so the lord told Moses to lay hands on Joshua who has the ability of a wise leader. Moses did according to all God told him.
