JULY 29, 2013 – YOUR EGYPT & YOUR RED SEA – Thousands of years ago God’s chosen people were slaves in Egypt and they were in bondage, until God set them free. The times in Egypt were never forgotten and the real life stories of slavery and freedom were passed down from generation to generation. We each have our own past Egypt where we were slaves to something/in bondage, and we each have our own parting of the Red Sea where God led us to freedom. Here’s my question for you today – Are you passing your story of freedom down to the next generation? Are you telling the people in your life about the crossing of your Red Sea? Don’t be ashamed to speak of your Egypt to others, and here’s why – Others could cross over into Egypt if you do not warn them and there are still others that are in Egypt right now, and they are crying out for help. They are in Egypt looking for a way of escape; looking for their Red Sea. Tell them about your journey and what the Lord did for you! Exodus 13:8-9 On that day tell your son, “I do this because of what the LORD did for me when I came out of Egypt.” This observance will be for you like a sign on your hand and a reminder on your forehead that the law of the LORD is to be on your lips. For the LORD brought you out of Egypt with his mighty hand.(NIV)
