Going Back to Egypt

“‘I have certainly seen the oppression of my people in Egypt. I have heard their groans and have come down to rescue them. Now go, for I am sending you back to Egypt.'”

(Acts 7:34 NLT)

Moses had fled from Egypt after killing an Egyptian and he probably never thought of going back. However, years later, God called Moses to return to Egypt to free the Israelites from Egyptian bondage. Of course, Moses made excuses, but he eventually made his way back. There’s an Egypt, which we all want to run from. That thing from our past that we don’t want to revisit, but that we’ll ultimately return to for a divine purpose. Moses fled from Egypt in terror the first time, but left victoriously the second time. The same is true of all of God’s children.

God may call us to revisit “Egypt” for a purpose.
