A Different Perspective
Twice this morning I had conversations about the Israelites leaving Egypt. About their grumbling after their deliverance and their desire to have been left in Egypt even though Egypt meant slavery to them that was better than stepping out into the unknown where God called them by faith. In the unknown they had to completely rely on God to provide food and water for them, which He did and yet they grumbled.
The poignant point of the story Don’t Go Back To Egypt, regardless of how familiar and ‘comfortable’ that may be. I wonder if you might take a look at a different perspective?
When the Israelites left Egypt God caused them to plunder the Egyptians right before their eyes, a miracle in itself, by asking for the Egyptians gold, silver and clothes, which they gave to the Israelites without question.
Perspective shift – God blessed the Israelites as they walked out of Egypt. He BLESSED them. He blessed them as the left a place of slavery and walked into a place of faith.
Precious One, God longs to bless you in ways unimaginable. The only thing required by you is to take that first step in faith into what may be unknown to you but completely known to God and His will for you. And by all means remember to praise, thank and worship God.
“In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” 1 Thessalonians 5:18.
