Exodus 12

11 In this manner you shall eat it: with your belt fastened, your sandals on your feet, and your staff in your hand. And you shall eat it in haste. It is the LORD’s Passover.  Get ready and go.

Are you ready for your  deliverance,God gave the Israelites specific directions concerning their deliverance. I do believe God does the same thing for us,but as I said in my earlier post “are we listening”? The freedom you’ve prayed for and waited so long for. The children of God in Egypt had cried out to Him and waited and waited, for their deliverance then    1 The LORD said to Moses, “Yet one plague more I will bring upon Pharaoh and upon Egypt.  Afterward he will let you go from here. When he lets you go, he will drive you away completely. ( Exodus 11)

Just one more thing, I’ve got to do,just one more thing then you’re free! I love it. God is so awesome! What can God have planned for you and me. It makes me take a closer look and I’m asking God to fine tune my ears. I do not want to miss what’s in store for me,how about you?

“I Am”!

What is it that has you in bondage? What have you prayed for so many times that you feel there is no need in praying any more?  As we

walk with the Lord from day-to-day the pressures of life tend to get us so far down. There are days when we feel just like tossing in the towel,and throwing our hands up to say I am finished. I cannot go any further. Well we’re not the only ones that have cried out to God,and they were in bondage even longer!

Exodus 3:7~10

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. 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 JebusitesAnd now the cry of the Israelites has reached me, and I have seen the way the Egyptians are oppressing them.10 So now, go. I am sending you to Pharaoh to bring my people the Israelites out of Egypt.”(NIV)

11 But Moses said to God, “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?”

Yes God heard the cries of His people down in Egypt,and He already had a way of escape in plan! And I’m telling you God has a way of escape in plan for you and me.God also hears our cries to Him for help and this is pleasing to the Lord. For did not He tell us in

Proverbs 3:5

Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;(NIV)   So we should find much comfort from our heartache and disappointments in God’s word,let’s encourage ourselves from this:  Exodus 3:14     God said to Moses, “I am who I am. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: I am has sent me to you.’”(NIV)     “I Am” is God great and full of power today and we can trust in Him now,be encouraged God has not forgotten you!

Joseph made ruler in Egypt

Genesis 37

3 Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he was the son of his old age: and he made him a coat of many colours.s4 And when his brethren saw that their father loved him more than all his brethren, they hated him, and could not speak peaceably unto him.

Not only did his Father favor him,but Joseph was a dreamer! Being a dreamer is a good thing,it keeps you focused. But being a bragger is a whole different thing,it’s like you’re always showing off and thinking you’re better than anyone else. Although this was not the type of person Joseph was, but as far as his brothers were concerned he was.

5 One night Joseph had a dream, and when he told his brothers about it, they hated him more than ever. 6 “Listen to this dream,” he said. 7 “We were out in the field, tying up bundles of grain. Suddenly my bundle stood up, and your bundles all gathered around and bowed low before mine!”

8 His brothers responded, “So you think you will be our king, do you? Do you actually think you will reign over us?” And they hated him all the more because of his dreams and the way he talked about them.9 Soon Joseph had another dream, and again he told his brothers about it. “Listen, I have had another dream,” he said. “The sun, moon, and eleven stars bowed low before me!”

18 When Joseph’s brothers saw him coming, they recognized him in the distance. As he approached, they made plans to kill him. 19 “Here comes the dreamer!” they said. 20 “Come on, let’s kill him and throw him into one of these cisterns. We can tell our father, ‘A wild animal has eaten him.’ Then we’ll see what becomes of his dreams!”

21 But when Reuben heard of their scheme, he came to Joseph’s rescue. “Let’s not kill him,” he said. 22 “Why should we shed any blood? Let’s just throw him into this empty cistern here in the wilderness. Then he’ll die without our laying a hand on him.” Reuben was secretly planning to rescue Joseph and return him to his father.

Joseph was  sharing his dream and he was not ashamed or afraid,and you learn in reading farther that this sharing got Joseph in big trouble. But like Joseph when troubles come we must be steady in our service to God. Joseph believed in his God and his troubles only built his faith up in God,so will ours. Joseph’s end results was worth all he had been through, during the famine he saved his family and they were all united in love,and they did all bow down to him.

Genesis

41 Pharaoh said to Joseph, “I hereby put you in charge of the entire land of Egypt.”

he was made the head man in charge and he didn’t misuse his authority ,but was humble and used by God greatly. So be encouraged by the Word of God whatever you’re going through God is also bringing you out Victoriously! Because he dearly loves you.
