Hear these words from God, “I am the LORD your God, who brought you out…” There is great comfort in knowing that the God we worship is the very same who delivered, that is, rescued his people from a life of bondage. God, who is eternal and unchanging, continues to rescue his people.
We are all sinners in need of redemption. Our only hope is a Savior. Thankfully, we have one. The God who delivered the children of Israel so long ago is the God who sent his son Jesus as Savior for a fallen humanity. Through Christ’s self-giving sacrifice, God has delivered his people from sin, death and the grave. Thus, there is peace and comfort in these words, “I am the Lord your God who brought you out…”
As you read them, consider how God has delivered you. In what ways has God rescued you? As you ponder these things, pray and give thanks to the God who saves. Pray for those who are in the midst of struggle that they too might grow in faith understanding. Pray for the lost and the lonely, the hungry and those who thirst for God’s love, so that they too may believe God loves them so much that he promises to deliver them from sin and open the gates to everlasting life through Christ our Lord and Savior.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you for delivering your people from sin and death, through your son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
