The Miraculous Deliverance of Israel (Exodus 1:1 – 13:16)

Exodus opens with the Hebrews being oppressed in Egypt. Like any group under restraint, the Hebrews complained. Their complaint was made known not only to their captors, but their God. God heard their plea and put in motion a plan to deliver them. He accomplished this deliverance through selecting a prophet named Moses.

Deliverance did not occur instantaneously, it was a process.

The first concept to be gleaned from the Book of Exodus is that God blesses those who remain in a covenant relationship with Him. He is their God and they become His holy people.

Secondly, God explains in great detail what is acceptable to Him.

Thirdly, God delivers those who find themselves in bondage.

The deliverance may not come instantaneously, but it will come to those who wait and make preparation for His deliverance. That deliverance is based upon obedience to God’s expressed will and upon moving when He says to move. The children of Israel had to wait until after the Passover meal and the angel of death had passed over; after that, God gave the command to go.

Thus, we also must wait, but be ready to move when God commands.
(New Spirit Filled Life Bible 2002:75, 76).
