Vital signs- Thursday, March 30th, 2023

When the people of Israel were still an extended family instead of a nation, they moved to Egypt. Over the years, their number grew and the Egyptians became hostile to them. This resulted in oppression and slavery. Against this background, we read how God promises to deliver his people. He summons Pharaoh to let his people go, but Pharaoh refuses to do so. Then God, on behalf of his people Israel, goes on the attack. Every time Pharaoh refuses to let the Israelites go, God sends a plague. It takes ten of these plagues, ranging from frogs, gnats, and flies, to hail and three days of darkness. The last plague is worst: all Egyptian firstborns die. Then Pharaoh gives in and allows the Israelites to leave. But it does not take long before he regrets his decision and pursues the people. Then God intervenes once more. He drives the sea back so that the people can cross it. When Pharaoh goes in after them into the midst of the sea, the waters return to their normal course, and all the host of Pharaoh is drowned.

The Israelites never forgot about God’s mighty act of salvation. Humanly their situation was hopeless, but the Lord delivered them.

He’s the same God today, and he still delivers


“I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, as God Almighty, but by My name Lord I was not known to them. I have also established My covenant with them, to give them the land of Canaan, the land of their pilgrimage, in which they were strangers. And I have also heard the groaning of the children of Israel whom the Egyptians keep in bondage, and I have remembered My covenant. Therefore say to the children of Israel: ‘I am the Lord; I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, I will rescue you from their bondage, and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with great judgments. I will take you as My people, and I will be your God. Then you shall know that I am the Lord your God who brings you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians. And I will bring you into the land which I swore to give to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; and I will give it to you as a heritage: I am the Lord.’ ””

‭‭Exodus‬ ‭6‬:‭3‬-‭8‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
