And God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob. —Exodus 2:24
God knew the descendants of Abraham would suffer the bonds of the Egyptians for more than four-hundred years, and He even told Abraham about it when they established their blood covenant (Genesis 15:13-16).
God had a plan for Abraham’s descendants before Abraham had any children. He looked forward through time and chose the land He would give to them. He foresaw the results of idolatry, and in His perfect time brought forth a covenant people to establish a holy nation.
When the cry of Abraham’s descendants reached God’s ears, He was ready, and He “remembered His covenant.” Because of the everlasting promises He had made to Abraham, deliverance was on the way!
The promises of the covenant will never be broken. When you are in need, cry out to God. Declare your covenant relationship with Him through Christ. Fix your eyes on Jesus, not on your need. Refuse to be entombed by your circumstances because you are in covenant with the Resurrection and the Life. Rejoice in everything (Philippians 4:4). Your deliverance is on the way!
Jesus, You are my bondage-breaker. You have repaired
every breach. You are my bridge over my circumstance
to Your deliverance. Help me to rejoice always,
fixing my eyes on You. Amen.
