DELIVERY –  We rely on delivery trucks for everything in life.  Goods are delivered to stores, gas delivered to the pumps, medical supplies to hospitals and more and more we are relying on delivery of parcels directly to our homes.  Over the pandemic we have struggled to get delivery of all the essential goods we need for living.  Delivery is very crucial to our way of living.

EXODUS, a mass departure, or movement of people.  You could even say EXODUS means “DELIVERANCE”.

There are many examples in our times where people are searching for an “Exodus”.  The southern borders of the United States is an example.  The war in Ukraine, where people are fleeing a war torn country.  People leaving the warmth of a place like California to find safety and security from drugs and crime, to raise their children better.

In Moses day, God was showing him a way out, a “Deliverance” an “Exodus” for His people, to be free from the Egyptians rule.  God had a plan.  “Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD which He will accomplish for you today.” Exodus 14:13

God has a plan for us as Exodus tells us we have a Guide who provides reliable play-by-play on life and goes before us every step of the way.  This Exodus illustrates redemption knowing that God goes ahead, removes the fear that comes with dramatic changes in life.  He quiets our hearts and plants our minds to seek His will and timing.

Exodus is an epic story of God’s mighty deliverance.  He delivered the Israelites from slavery to freedom.  Just like the Israelites, each of us have problems we cannot solve in our own strength, by our own resources.  We NEED Him, we need to give Him our fears.  We may not have a Red Sea that needs parting, but we do need the assurance that God is with us always, in times of trouble and even when things are going splendidly.  “The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”  Deuteronomy 31:8

He takes care of our physical needs. God promises to provide what we need.  Philippians 4:19, “And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”  Matthew 6:31-32, “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?  For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.”  Psalm 145:16, You open Your hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing”.

He gives us rest.  Matthew 11:28, “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”  Psalm 23:2, “He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters.”  Exodus 20:8-10a, “Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a sabbath of the LORD your God; in it you shall not do any work.”

He provides direction. Proverbs 20:24, “A man’s steps are of the LORD; How then can a man understand his own way?”  Ephesians 2:10, “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.”

He gives us grace.  2 Corinthians 9:8, “And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.”  2 Corinthians 12:9a, “And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.”  Ephesians 2:8, “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God.”  James 4:6, “But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: “God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.”

He shows us how to escape temptation. 1 Corinthians 10:13, “No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.” 

He helps us when we’re hurting.  Psalm 34:17-20, “The righteous cry, and the LORD hearsand delivers them out of all their troubles. The LORD is near to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the LORD delivers him out of them all.

He saves us.  Matthew 1:21, “And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name JESUS, for He will save His people from their sins.”  1 Timothy 1:15, “This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief.”  John 3:17, “For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.”

He gives us peace.  Philippians 4:7, “And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”  Roman 5:1, Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.”  Psalm 107:9, “For He satisfies the longing soul, And fills the hungry soul with goodness.”

He points us to the truth.  Psalm 119:105, “Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path.”  2 Timothy 3:16, “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.”  John 14:6, “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”

When you think of the Israelites being delivered from Egypt, God provided all of the above for them and He will provide all of the above for you too.

Remember when we pray the Lord’s Prayer, there is a line that says, “Deliver us from evil”, and God does.  One way to ensure that promise is when we surrender our hearts to Jesus, for He is our Deliverer.  If you don’t know Jesus, ask Him into your heart by simply saying this little prayer with an open heart and mind.
