A departure that each person must experience in their own lives. Throughout the bible, it features stories of individuals who went through an exodus of some sort. A leaving or departure from one phase or transition in life to another. Some like Sarah, Abraham’s wife, tried to help God. She used her servant to have a son and muddied the waters. You should instead, trust God and do what he said and he will help and guide you to success during each phase of life. It is easy to go off course and try to make things better. When we do this, we use our human strength which gets in the way. If you trust the lord he will build you up with his strong right hand that has all power.
I believe that this is the year that we all come out of whatever situation that it is in your life: EXODUS.
Remember Hannah, the prophet Samuel’s mother, how she trusted God and the Lord honored her faith and gave her a son. She was barren and desired to have a child. With this desire, she promised to consecrate her son to the Lord. She prayed in faith and the Lord honored her vow. For with, the Lord honored her and gave her five more children. He will give you more than what you asked for if you trust him in faith.
Israel Exodus- God brought out the children of Israel during the Egyptian Empire’s height and strength. When God says its time, he will bring you out of the midst of your enemies during their prime. God’s strength is supernatural. God's strength endures, it never changes or fades. God has no limits even though your enemies have limits. When you stick with God, he will bring you out of the most impossible situations. When God delivers us, you will be singing praises for a long time to come.
Look at how the Lord brought out Israel from the bonds of slavery in Egypt. He did this via judgements of plagues and performing miracles through Moses. But the Hebrews needed to get out of sin and follow the way of fellowship and righteousness with God. To know fellowship and covenant with the Lord is one of the highest honors. But you will have to deny yourself and fill up with his love by prayer, fasting and dedication to the Lord reading his word.
