Follow the Leader

Throughout the Old Testament the word salvation can be used interchangeably with deliverance. The Lord delivers us from sin, hell and judgment through a saving faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.

Moses was born at a time when Egypt had become a house of bondage for the Jews. Be careful that the place where you think you are happiest may soon become a place of affliction. Realize that our only truly safe place will be found in heaven. David wrote, “In your presence is fullness of joy and in your right hand are pleasures for evermore.” (Psalm 16:11) 

The wicked king set out to repress the people of Israel. God’s people had task-masters set over them, not only to burden them, but to afflict them with their burdens. They not only made them serve for Pharaoh’s profit, but their lives became bitter.

Christianity often spreads most when it was persecuted. The blood of the martyrs has been called the seed of the church. 
The Egyptians tried to destroy Israel by the murder of their male people. Just in time God sent a deliverer in the person of Moses. The enemies of God are always trying to destroy the people of God because they feel threatened by a power greater than their own. When people may try to ruin the church we can be assured that God prepares a way for its deliverance. 
May God prepare the way and may we follow Him today and everyday. Amen?
