In Exodus God Delivers Me from Slavery
For more than four hundred years, the Israelites were slaves in Egypt. They were stuck, mistreated, and without rights, yet they were still God’s people. He had not forgotten His beloved. Suddenly, in flames of love and fury, God spoke through a burning bush. “I have indeed seen the misery of my people in Egypt. I have heard them crying out… So I have come down to rescue them” (Exodus 3:7–8).
The Israelites wondered for centuries if God really loved them, and one day His love set a bush ablaze before Moses’ eyes. And God’s love set about rescuing His people. When the people were finally free, Moses sang, “In your unfailing love you will lead the people you have redeemed. In your strength you will guide them to your holy dwelling” (15:13).
Just as God delivered His people from the slavery of Egypt, He delivers you from whatever you are powerless to rescue yourself from. Because He has “set His love upon you” (Deuteronomy 7:7 kjv), He sets you free from the slavery of sin, insecurity, fear, and despair. He frees you to trust and follow Him into all the promises He has for you.
Just as He said, “the cry of the Israelites has reached me, and I have seen the way the Egyptians are oppressing them” (Exodus 3:9), your cry for freedom has reached His heart too. He loves you, and He sees what you are going through. He knows what oppresses you, what depresses you, and from what you long to gain your freedom.
God’s love rescues you! He can break the chains that keep you stuck in your Egypt. Ask Him to set you free today. You can trust His mighty, loving Hand to keep rescuing you and setting you free.
Commemorate this day, the day you came out of Egypt … because the Lord brought you out of it with a mighty hand. (13:3)
And the Lord said, I have surely seen the affliction of my people which are in Egypt, and have heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters; for I know their sorrows; And I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land unto a good land and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey; unto the place of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites.
