God is not just the God of the new beginning—he is also the God of the entire pilgrimage of his people. He has done miracles to get them out of Egypt and across the Red Sea. There are 600,00 men, as well as their wives and children, on a journey into the desert. First God provides fresh water. This incident was a testing. Now the people want bread and meat.

It seems almost too good to be true, but now, four centuries after coming to Egypt, the descendants of Jacob are finally on their journey out of Egypt to the land which God has promised to give them to inherit.

In Egypt Pharaoh is considered a god. He has certain powers and abilities, and the might of Egypt resides with him. When Moses and Aaron appear before him to demand the release of the Hebrew slaves, each refusal becomes an occasion for the True God to demonstrate His superiority over Pharaoh and all the other gods of Egypt. Each successive plague attacks deeper into the heart of Pharaoh’s power and politics. Slowly but surely, Pharaoh’s power is undermined until God breaks Pharaoh’s grip on the people of Israel completely. With the final plague everything begins to unravel: the death of the firstborn is personal for Pharaoh. This occasion has been celebrated ever since.

Even though Moses had failed to be a liberator for his people as a young man, God called him to the task through a burning bush. The Lord promised to be with Moses and to empower him to do signs and wonders in front of Pharaoh. God would also go before Moses so that the Hebrew people would accept his leadership. When Moses performed these miracles in front of Pharaoh, instead of freeing the people, Pharaoh made it worse. Have you ever had a time where you did everything right and the situation went from bad to worse?

The nation of Israel had been enslaved by Egypt. The Egyptians ruthlessly worked the people of Israel. But still the Israelites grew in numbers.

A life that did not have a purpose now has a purpose, guidance and direction by the Holy Spirit.
