OUT OF EGYPT

I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, that you should not be their slaves. And I have broken the bars of your yoke and made you walk erect.

                                                                                       Leviticus 26:13 ESV

*************************************************************************************************************

What is your “Egypt?”   If you are a Christian, you will understand that question because of what happened to the Israelites in the old testament of the bible.  We have all experienced a kind of bondage of one sort or another, whether it was as a child or an adult.  It may have been, spiritual, physical, emotional or financial.  For some, that bondage is still a problem.  Regardless of the circumstances, whether past or present, you can experience deliverance from your Egypt.

“How?” you might ask.  The answer is simple, Trust in God!  After all, it was He who brought the Israelites out of Egypt and, and He brought them out with untold riches!  The book of Exodus chronicles the long arduous trek taken by them on their way to the Promised Land, a land flowing with milk and honey.  Not only did they leave their bondage a wealthy people, they were headed for a destination richer than they could ever imagine.  Why, because God loved them.  They were His children, His Chosen People.  He saw their misery and heard their cries for mercy.

Will God do that for you and me today?  Will He bring us out of our bondage wealthy, headed for paradise?  YES!!! Why?  Because of what His son Jesus Christ has done for us.  The Jews at that time only had the promise of a Messiah (savior).  Today we have that Savior who died on a cross of shame for us to absolve us of our sins and make us holy before the Father.

When we turn to God the Father and ask forgiveness for our sins, accept His one and only Son as our Savior and truly repent, we become blameless before Him.  We stand in His presence as sinless children, clothed in garments of pure white no longer stained by sin, delivered from its bondage.  We become heirs to the throne of the King with the promise of everlasting life in a land we can only imagine.  The book of Revelation tells us that Heaven is a place where the streets are paved with gold as clear as glass (Rev. 21:21).

Would you like to be released from your “Egypt?”  The answer is simple.  Trust in God and His Son Jesus to deliver you.  He knows your misery and will hear your cries for mercy.  Leave your bondage behind you and load up on God’s riches, headed for a land that you can only imagine.  Start on your exodus today.
