To continue the Biblical theme of separation started in the 1.13.13 blog, consider another Biblical example.
Exodus 3:7-8 “And the Lord said, ‘I have surely seen the affliction of My people who are in Egypt, and have given heed to their cry because of their taskmasters, for I am aware of their sufferings. So I have come down to deliver them from the power of the Egyptians, and to bring them up from that land to a good and spacious land, to a land flowing with milk and honey …'” (italics mine)
God called the Israelites out of Egypt to separate them from captivity in accordance with His will. From what do you need to be released? What (or who) holds you captive? Financial messes, unhealthy relationships, hopelessness, underemployment or unemployment, issues from your past, destructive people, addiction to drugs, alcohol or porn, abuse, health problems and physical pain, anger, bitterness, jealousy or resentment or lack of self-discipline (ie no consistent prayer or Bible reading/study, overeating, lack of exercise)?
God hears your cry and is aware of your sufferings. He offers deliverance. Walk into the Promised Land of Eternity with Him. The words of John 3:16 seem appropriate.
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son (Jesus), that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.”
Believe and be delivered from all that seeks to drown you. Live full in God’s light and love. Will you choose freedom or captivity?
