God saw the oppression of His people and knew it was time to act. He called Moses to lead His people out of Egypt and into the Promised Land. His plan was to take them out of an oppressive system and reaffirm His covenant with them. If they would trust and obey Him, they would experience a journey of supernatural provision and protection. If they would turn their hearts towards Him, they would know a journey of unprecedented blessing in spite of the dangers and opposition they were sure to encounter along the way.
Unfortunately, history reveals that instead of hearts full of worship and devotion, the Israelites complained and were ungrateful at every turn. For the first time in 400 years, they were finally able to worship the Lord in freedom, yet their cry was to rather go back to the chains and whips of Egypt. We should remember that we too were once slaves to sin.
Let’s never take for granted the freedom we have found in Christ Jesus! Today, come before Him with a heart overflowing with love and gratitude for the privilege of intimately knowing His goodness, love and tender care. Worship Him like never before, knowing you truly are free!
