So the Jews are leaving Egypt. They have been set free from slavery, God has answered their prayers. God instructs Moses exactly where He wants them to go and camp, "between Migdol and the sea."
It is interesting to note that when you have been set free from sin - sin will chase you. If there is a truth that I have come to know it is this. "The Devil will always overplay his hand." Through force and intimidation, Pharaoh thought he could get the Jews to return to Egypt.
When hell comes charging like an Egyptian army you can react like the Jews. "AHHHH! We're all going to die! What's wrong with you Moses!" Or you can respond like Moses
13 And Moses said to the people, “Fear not, stand firm, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will work for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall never see again. 14 The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.”
God led the Jews to the spot where He was going to deliver His people from bondage once and for all. While they thought the fight was over, God knew that Pharaoh would never leave them alone.
Often times we find ourselves in the midst of a battle. It's painful, it's depressing, and we think - "It's all over." But God is just leading us to one more victory. He is showing us that He has won and there the "Pharaoh's" of our life cannot own us.
Thank God for the victories that you are going to experience today.
PRAY: Dear Jesus, thank you for facing down my enemies for me. AMEN
