It’s not just FROM but also TO

“Then He brought us out from there, that He might bring us in…” Deuteronomy 6:23

This verse comes from a section in Deuteronomy in which Moses is instructing the people to be sure to pass on to their children and grandchildren the mighty works of God from their history.

“When your son asks you in time to come, saying, ‘What is the meaning of the testimonies, the statutes, and the judgments which the LORD our God has commanded you?’ then you shall say to your son: ‘We were slaves of Pharaoh in Egypt, and the LORD brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand; and the LORD showed signs and wonders before our eyes, great and severe, against Egypt, Pharaoh, and all his household. Then He brought us out from there, that He might bring us in, to give us the land of which He swore to our fathers.” Deuteronomy 6:20-23

God didn’t deliver His people from Egypt just so they could wander around the desert. God delivered His people from the bondage of Egypt so that He could deliver them into the land He promised to Abraham and his descendants.

Has there been an area in your life, an area of bondage or besetting sin that God has delivered you from so that He could lead you to a land of promise and freedom?

Perhaps you have not yet come out from there so that you have not yet been brought in…still struggling with sin and bondage that continues to have a strangle-hold in your life. Have you lost hope of ever finding freedom and victory?

Or maybe your “Egypt” is much more subtle. No one else would ever suspect the inward battle of your heart. Maybe you battle anger, bitterness or unforgiveness, covetousness or lust.   God wants to bring us out from here too.  God’s deliverance is not just FROM but also TO.

“God brings us out that He might bring us in (Deut. 6:23), and He brings us in that we might overcome and claim our inheritance in Jesus Christ. Because God’s people are identified with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection (Rom. 6; Gal. 2:20), they have ‘overcoming power,’ and the world (6:14), the flesh (5:24), or the Devil (John 12:31) need not defeat them. In Jesus Christ, we are overcomers (1 John 5:4).” (i)

Sister, can you, by faith, set your eyes on God’s promises (where He is taking you TO), and trust Him to deliver you FROM whatever hinders you from walking in freedom and victory?

God wants to deliver you FROM so He can deliver you TO.
