Not a far-off God

Not a Far-Off God I will dwell among the children of Israel and will be their God. And they shall know that I am the Lord their God… —Exodus 29: 45-46 Where does God dwell? You might say He dwells in the universe, but whenever you start talking about the universe, you are describing something so vast and so distant that it can make God seem very far removed. But God is not remote or far-removed. Paul said that we should not think of God as way-off somewhere in the heaven where we cannot reach Him. The truth is, He…

Little by Little

Little by Little I will not drive them out from before you in one year, lest the land become desolate and the beasts of the field become too numerous for you. Little by little I will drive them out… —Exodus 23: 29-30 The Israelites faced a formidable enemy. We face a daily enemy, too, as we battle against our flesh. The flesh has real strongholds in our lives—fortresses surrounded by high walls. Giants dwell in our land. But God wants us to enter in and possess all of His promises. He wants us to live a life of blessedness and…

On Eagle’s wings

On Eagles’ Wings – A daily devotional Thus you shall say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel; “You have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles’ wings and brought you to Myself. Now therefore, if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, then you shall be a special treasure to Me above all people; for all the earth is Mine. And you shall be to Me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.” —Exodus 19: 3-6 An eagle builds its nest high up on…

Trapped

Trapped Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord… For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever. The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.” —Exodus 14: 13-14 The children of Israel had left the bondage in Egypt, their miserable life of slavery, and were determined now to serve the Lord. But the very first place that God leads them is into a trap. There is no way out of this valley but to turn around. They can’t cross over…

The Passover

The Passover Now the blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you are. And when I see the blood, I will pass over you; and the plague shall not be on you to destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt. —Exodus 12: 13 God has been so patient with the Egyptians. They had afflicted His people for at least eighty years. But He didn’t just wipe them out. He gave them preliminary notices that the day of judgment was arriving. He gave them the opportunity to change and to escape His judgment. In proclaiming…

Who Is The Lord?

Who Is the Lord? Afterward Moses and Aaron went in and told Pharaoh, “Thus says the Lord God of Israel: ‘Let my people go, that they may hold a feast to Me in the wilderness.’” And Pharaoh said, “Who is the Lord, that I should obey His voice to let Israel go? I do not know the Lord, nor will I let Israel go.” —Exodus 5: 1-2 Moses and Aaron came to Pharaoh with the demands of the Lord to let their people go. But he answered, “Who is the Lord that I should obey Him? I do not know…

God Knows

God Knows I have surely seen the oppression of My people who are in Egypt, and have heard their cry because of their taskmasters, for I know their sorrows. So I have come down to deliver them… —Exodus 3: 7-8 God’s people had been treated cruelly by the Egyptians for years. They could see no escape from their bondage. They cried unto God, but feared that He wasn’t listening. **When going through trials, we often feel alone. We think nobody sees or understands. But God knows. The Israelites didn’t know that God was already at work, that He had a…

Seek God

Seeking God for Direction Then God spoke to Israel in the visions of the night, and said, “Jacob, Jacob!… do not fear to go down to Egypt, for I will make of you a great nation there. I will go down with you to Egypt, and I will also surely bring you up again.” —Genesis 46: 2-4 For years, Jacob had thought his son Joseph was dead. Now his eldest sons give Jacob the startling news that Joseph is alive and wants him to come to Egypt. And so they begin their journey. But when they reach Beersheba, fear suddenly…

Guilt

Guilt And Reuben answered them, saying, “Did I not speak to you, saying, ‘Do not sin against the boy’; and you would not listen? Therefore behold, his blood is now required of us.” —Genesis 42: 22 Twenty years have passed since Joseph’s brothers sold him as a slave, but his cries are still buried in the recesses of their minds. Guilt! How it lingers in our memories, only to surface again and remind us of our deeds. The brothers had successfully hidden their guilt from their dad, but it wasn’t gone. Getting rid of guilt is almost an impossible task….
