Our Knowing God—Our Deliverer
5 “Do not come any closer,” God said. “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground.”
6″I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob.”
7 The LORD said, “I have indeed seen the misery of my people in Egypt. I have heard them crying out because of their slave drivers, and I am concerned about their suffering.
8 So I have come down to rescue them from the hand of the Egyptians and to bring them up out of that land into a good and spacious land, a land flowing with milk and honey–the home of the Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites.
9 And now the cry of the Israelites has reached me, and I have seen the way the Egyptians are oppressing them.
When we approach our Heavenly Father, we need to approach Him as our Holy God. When we come before our Father, we know who He is, but do we grasp Him in all His Glory and Holiness?
Our Father is all knowing, and He knows why we call upon Him, even before we think about calling out to Him.
The Lord said He had seen the misery of His people, He heard them crying out, and He was concerned about their suffering. He goes on to say that He came to rescue them and take them from where they were into a better land.
As we fast forward these thoughts into the 21st century, what do we see? Many people are suffering in misery in these days. Many are enslaved to a variety of things, including substances, materials, pride, power, plus many more. Many who are enslaved are crying out for help, but don’t know Who are where their help is, but our God hears their cry.
God comes by His Spirit, and He comes through Christians to reach out and touch those who are enslaved. For those who are trapped, God desires to lift them out of the pit they are in, and lead them to the promised land.
