God is our Strong Tower and ever-present help in our time of need…
The Spirit Filled Believer
OUR SOLE SOURCE Of SUPPLY
“The Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever”
(Ex. 14:13-14 NKJ).
How would you like to bid a “final farewell” to your problems as you go on to your promised land?
How would you like to say goodbye forever to worry, fear, and anxiety? To cancer, arthritis, diabetes, heart trouble? To poverty, debt, unemployment, and money worries?
Does this sound too good to be true? Can you accept this promise from the Lord:
“…the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever?” Can you claim this promise without a qualifying “Yes, but….?”
In Biblical topology, Egypt is a picture of the world system and everything related to it.
When we read that Israel was told not to look to Egypt for help (Isa. 30:2), it is a message for us today to rely completely upon the Lord as our sole source of supply.
Israel was warned of the Lord:
“…the Egyptians shall help in vain and to no purpose” (Isa. 30:7 NKJ).
So Egypt can be compared to dependence upon man and man’s resources. Such faith is always misplaced. We Christians are urged to put our TOTAL trust in the Lord.
Biblical Egypt also represents the opposition and hostility shown to God’s people, as in Moses’ day.
This situation can be likened to the modern-day problems we Christians face with persecution, poverty, pressure, and life’s adversity.
Praise God, there is a time of deliverance. No trouble was ever intended to be permanent. The “Egyptians” you see today, you will see no more. The problems you have been facing up till now, you will never face again.
