I Have Remembered by Kirk Hunt
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.
Exodus 6:5-6 NKJV
“I have remembered.” For 400 years the children of Israel suffered injustice and mistreatment from the Egyptians. It must have seemed that God had stopped caring and forgotten His people.
It turns out that our timing is not God’s timing. He has never forgotten His promises and will never fail to deliver His benefits. Suddenly, things will happen. To you, for you and around you. And pray for those who will stand against God’s sovereign actions.
Moses came out of the backside of the desert and faced down the most powerful ruler in the world. By the time God was done, Egypt was eager for the children of Israel to leave and paid dearly for their departure. When God our all-powerful commands, you and they will obey, sooner or later.
God upended precedent and history. Perhaps the Egyptians thought their power and systems of oppression could stand against anything. They found out that God’s supreme power would deliver redemption and judgment on His schedule.
Think: God remembers His promises to His people.
Pray: “Lord, remember Your promises and answer in Your sovereign power.”
