“So I have come down to deliver them from the power of the Egyptians, and to bring them up from the that land to a good and spacious land, to a land flowing with milk and honey, to the place of the Canaanite and the Hittite and the Amorite and the Perizzite and the Hivite and the Jebusite.”
But right here in this passage, Moses is being told that God has come down now to physically deliver His people. Can you imagine what is going through Moses’ head as God is saying these words? If his physical stuttering problem had not already started or been with him since birth, it could have well started now. This was incredible news.
But suppose for a moment God were talking to you and said, “My child, I have come down to deliver you from the evil power of your taskmasters, so tell me who and/or what they are so that we’re both on the same page.” What would you say to God? Could you list your enslavers? Are you ready to be freed from them? I believe God is in this business of delivering His people from the power of those people or things that have imprisoned us. I challenge you to face God and tell Him what you want freedom from.
Now just how was God going to deliver His people? Here’s what I find interesting. He was not going to do it by changing the Egyptians or Egypt. No, God was going to deliver His people from their sufferings by personally bringing them out from Egypt and leading them to a good and spacious land flowing with milk and honey, which was already occupied by a host of other people.
Here are a few things to realize. God does not just send us somewhere. He either takes us there or comes along with us. He’ll never ask you to go where He is not willing to be Himself, right there, with you. And that includes the journey along the way to your destination. He does not fly first-class while you take the night train and arranges to meet you later at the appointed spot and time. He walks right there beside you, through the desert if need be.
