And I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land unto a good land and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey; unto the place of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites (Exodus 3:8).
There are certain situations that people find themselves that it is only the hand of God that can bring them out.
Israel was in bondage in Egypt, under the rule of Pharaoh. If God did not step in, there would have been no deliverance. Pharaoh was just too strong.
David found himself in miry clay; the more he struggled to be free, the deeper he sank. If God did not step in, there would be no escape.
Lazarus was sick unto death. If the Lord failed to step in, Lazarus would have remained in the grave, and that would be the end of the story.
In 2 Kings 4, a poor widow owed so much money, the creditors came to take her two sons in lieu of the money owed. If God did not intervene, there could be no hope anywhere.
In Acts 12, Simon Peter was locked up in prison, to be soon beheaded by Herod, like he did with James. If God did not intervene, Peter’s untimely demise would have been history.
All these cases were real scenarios in the Scriptures. In all of them however, God stepped in and there was a complete turn around for victory.
What is your own situation that you want God to take over? A bondage? A miry clay? A debt? A prison? A sickness? A seemingly endless family crisis? Or what?
As God intervened in those days, He still does today. He is God and He does not change. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.
Call upon the Lord with all your heart. Report that situation to Him. Ask Him to do something particular. Tell Him exactly what you want. Believe Him with all your heart. He will deliver you and you shall glorify Him.
God still loves to intervene in seemingly impossible situations, if He is invited in. Invite Him today and He will surprise you.
Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved:
for thou art my praise (Jeremiah 17:14).
