Released from Spiritual Egypt

Jos 24:17 (NKJV) For the Lord our God is He who brought us and our fathers up out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage, who did those great signs in our sight, and preserved us in all the way that we went and among all the people through whom we passed.

We may not have been brought out of the literal land of Egypt, but we have been brought out of spiritual Egypt and for that we give God praise. For the Christian, Egypt represents our lives before Christ and each of us has our unique story of what our Egypt was like with God on our behalf, pulling off some awesome miracles in our redemptive story. Some of us were drug addicts, alcoholics, extremely selfish or prideful. Others were depressed and even demonically controlled, yet, God through Christ saved us. He pulled us out of our bondage and gave us a new and much better residence. Not only that but as this verse says, He preserves us – keeping us safe and secure in Him. Yes, friends, we serve a great and awesome God. This is why we can shout from the roof tops… “There is No god, Like Our God.”
