When Pharaoh oppresses:

When things are getting more and more difficult in your life, it is the voice of the oppressor saying "bricks without straw"
Exodus 5:6 That same day Pharaoh gave this order to the slave drivers and overseers in charge of the people: 7 “You are no longer to supply the people with straw for making bricks; let them go and gather their own straw. 8 But require them to make the same number of bricks as before; don’t reduce the quota. They are lazy; that is why they are crying out, ‘Let us go and sacrifice to our God.’ 9 Make the work harder for the people so that they keep working and pay no attention to lies.”
You are expected to produce more and more with less and less. You are supposed to continue to live up to expectations that are impossible. This is a sign that you must leave Egypt. The oppressor will not let you go without a fight. He may even make life more difficult. Yet unless you leave you will sink into even greater slavery to the enemy. Your promised land waits for you, but first you must leave Egypt, leeks, onions and all.
Numbers11:4The rabble with them began to crave other food, and again the Israelites started wailing and said, “If only we had meat to eat! 5We remember the fish we ate in Egypt at no cost—also the cucumbers, melons, leeks, onions and garlic. 6But now we have lost our appetite; we never see anything but this manna!”
IF you remain in the land of oppression you will perish under the hand of Pharaoh. God is calling you out...
