Leaving Egypt Behind

Scripture: Exodus 3: 12, When you have brought the people out of Egypt

Fresh baked aromas permeate the air. A hungry child pleads with his parent “When?” The answer “Soon” doesn’t satisfy. A few minutes later “When?” is repeated. Waiting takes forever states the cliché to all ages.

A limit is implied though. We are waiting for something to happen. Once the when is accomplished our wait is over. The object needs to be reached, the decision made, the commitment acted upon.

When God saw that Moses turned aside to look, then, deliverance from Egypt began. Moses’ task could be set before him. When Moses completed the immediate call and brought Israel to the mountain, then, the sign-worship. When you go, you will go empty-handed. Then, God would release the recompense from Pharaoh’s hard grasp.

Jesus “who for the joy set before Him endured the cross”. Then, salvation. Then, spiritual riches. Then, inheritance.

Forgive my impatience Lord as I implore results and rewards in prayer. Show me first where I have forgotten Your when, of obedience. Then, hold me in Your keeping until Your time is right.

Psalm of Worship: Psalm 145:15

The eyes of all look to Thee,

And Thou dost give them their food in due time.
