Leaving Egypt Behind

Scripture: Exodus 4:19, “Go back to Egypt,…”

After wrestling with the authenticity of God’s call, Moses accepted. He had made a new life for himself in Midian; a wife and family, work, and now a restored relationship to the God of his fathers. Did peace descend on Moses like a sun’s warm ray?

“All the men who were seeking your life are dead,” God told him. Physically, it was safe for Moses to return. Emotionally, it meant a return to a place of pain, with memories of broken relationships and broken dreams. The place Moses left in fear and hurt. Now God asked Moses to face it again through His perspective, with new eyes.

To relive painful incidents in God’s Presence opens the door of healing to wounds. God can smooth out the sharp edges of splintered hurts. He can restore life and bring new beginnings where death, destruction, slavery, abuse and desertion once existed.

Whether we are called to physically return, or to emotionally or mentally reconnect to buried wounds, we too have to go back long enough to recognize and receive healing. “..He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed.”

Whenever the pain rises to the surface Lord, please remind me to place it in Your hands and watch for Your renewal.

Psalm of Worship: Psalm 51:10

Create in me a clean heart, O God

And renew a steadfast spirit within me.
