In today’s reading (I’m doing a chapter a day in Exodus for 40 days) is the wonderful reminder of God’s awareness of his people’s pain.
I have surely seen the affliction…
I have heard their cry…
I know their sufferings…
But we see something more. We see that, not only is he aware, but he takes action.
“And I have come down…” vs 8
That is a promise of deliverance.
“…to bring them up…”
That is a promise of delight.
Those words hit me in a fresh way this morning. God came down to bring them up. And He came down again, in the flesh, to bring you and I up.
“I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.” John 10:10
He came down to bring us up. To do more than bring deliverance. To bring delight.
👉What has you down today?
Spend time with the Lord today and allow him to bring you up.
