Thought For Today - July 27
Why Go Back To Egypt?

    The children of Israel always had a pull toward Egypt from whence they had so miraculously been delivered. They so quickly forgot how God had delivered them from the bondage of Pharaoh, and brought them across the Red Sea, and led them in the wilderness and how he fought for them and delivered them from their enemies, and gave them angel's food to eat.
    Likewise, the Christian is prone to wander away from God, and tends to desire again the things of the world, the flesh, and the devil. How soon many of us forget, once we have been delivered, how terrible the bondage and slavery of sin. Sinful pleasures look attractive to us again, and the deceitfulness of the things around us seem to draw us back into the very bondage that we have so miraculously been delivered from by the death, burial, and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
    God warned his ;people Israel of the danger they were in when they allowed this to happen, and the same warning is given to Christians today who tend to have their affections alienated away from their Savior.
    "Woe to the rebellious children, saith the Lord, that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin: That walk to go down into Egypt, and have not asked at my mouth; to strengthen themselves in the strength of Pharaoh, and to trust in the shadow of Egypt. Therefore shall the strength of Pharaoh, be your shame, and the trust in the shadow of Egypt your confusion." Isaiah 30: 1-3.


From the book -"Morning Thoughts And Meditations" - By Robert A. Searles
