Live As Children of God

21 And I will give this people favor in the sight of the Egyptians; and when you go, you shall not go empty, 22 but each woman shall ask of her neighbor, and any woman who lives in her house, for silver and gold jewelry, and for clothing. You shall put them on your sons and on your daughters. So you shall plunder the Egyptians. ~ Exodus 3:21-22

When God led the Israelites out of Egypt, He didn’t lead them out empty-handed; He led them out with the jewelry and clothing of the very people who were enslaving and mistreating them. While the people of Israel were in the land of Egypt, they were slaves and paupers, but when God led them out, He led them out rich. Now, I’m not saying that God wants or is going to make us all rich; neither am I saying He isn’t. I’m saying we were spiritual slaves. We were spiritual paupers, but God, in His love and mercy, stepped off of His throne and led us out of the spiritual land of Egypt by saving us from our slave master, sin.

We are now rich in Christ Jesus. We are no longer slaves or paupers but sons and daughters of the Most High God. We were once poor in spirit; now, we are filled with the Spirit of God that heals, casts out fear, protects us, guides us, strengthens us, and empowers us through Christ Jesus. Be encouraged today, for the God of the Universe has freed you from your chains of sin, fear, depression, etc. He has freed you from all strongholds; all you have to do is repent and accept your freedom in Christ Jesus.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Live As Children of God.
