God’s care upon His people is not only steadfast, but also complete. For Israel, He begins with their deliverance from oppression through great and mighty miracles – frogs, locusts, gnats, and waters of blood all symbols of His power over the alleged gods of Egypt. But God not only brings the people out slavery at the hand of the Egyptians. He also “brings out Israel with silver and gold,” then ensuring their daily food and water in the wilderness on the way to a land that He promises to them. He never leaves them without, for He is always near to them. He gives to them more than what their cries for help have asked for, enough that they have been brought out to rejoice in Him.
When God delivers, He delivers in miraculous ways. He provides for Israel and He provides for us. Even today, bring to mind what He has already done for you. He has kept you at night while you rested and has woken you up from your slumber. He has provided for you a daily provision of blessings. He has given you each breath of air to sustain you moment by moment, even when you have not thought through your inhaling and exhaling. We are completely dependent on God. While our need for God is great, God’s ability and willingness to remain faithful far exceeds our every need. He is faithful in character to nurture and grow us in faith. He delivers us from and He delivers to us freely and gladly, preserving us that we might give Him praise. Hallelujah! Our God is Good.
