I will take you as My people, and I will be your God. Then you shall know that I am the Lord your God who brings you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians.
And I will bring you into the land which I swore to give to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; and I will give it to you as a heritage: I am the Lord. Exodus 6:7-8 NKJV
God sent Joseph and seventy people into Egypt during a time of famine. God gave them favor. They prospered and multiplied. Israel became a great nation of people.
In time the King of Egypt died. A new King was raised up. He dealt harshly with the Israelites. The children of Israel became slaves to the Egyptians. They lived in bondage for 400 years.
God sent Moses to lead the people out of Egypt. God was not just relocating them. He was not just giving them new leadership. God told the children of Israel He would be their God. They would be His people.
God delivered Israel from bondage with a mighty outstretched arm. The mightiest nation on earth could not oppose the Lord. The false gods of the Egyptians were powerless against Him. He showed Israel that He is the One True God!
God is speaking to us today. He can deliver us from bondage and unbelief. He loves us. He will never leave us nor forsake us. He will be with us when we pass through the dangers of life.
The Lord will deliver us with His mighty outstretched arm. No useless idol or false god can stop the great and mighty works Jesus wants to accomplish in us and through us!
Are you in bondage to fear or isolation? Are you struggling with drug or alcohol addiction? Maybe you have lost the joy of your salvation.
Do not live in unbelief!
Turn to Almighty God with your burdens. Make your needs known to Him. Come before your God today. Ask Him to show Himself mighty on your behalf!
If you do not know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior turn to Him today. He is waiting for you!
The Lord is speaking to you today. He is saying “I will take you as Mine, and I will be your God.” Then you will know that I am the Lord your God who brings you out from under the burden of sin and unbelief!
“For I know the thoughts that I think towards you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
Let God deliver you into the promised land of abundant living. You will be blessed!
