Daily we need to be thankful for what God has done for us.
Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men! Psalm 107:8
And when Pharaoh drew nigh, the children of Israel lifted up their eyes, and, behold, the Egyptians marched after them; and they were sore afraid: and the children of Israel cried out unto the LORD. And they said unto Moses, Because there were no graves in Egypt, hast thou taken us away to die in the wilderness? wherefore hast thou dealt thus with us, to carry us forth out of Egypt? Is not this the word that we did tell thee in Egypt, saying, Let us alone, that we may serve the Egyptians? For it had been better for us to serve the Egyptians, than that we should die in the wilderness. Exodus 14:10-12
The old testament was a "shadow of things to come" and is a type of the New Testament, the time we live in today.
Egypt is a type of bondage - sin, Moses was a type of Christ, delivering God's people from Egypt.
We need to be careful about "looking back" to our old life before Christ. People in sin like to present themselves as being "free from restrictions" , a carefree spirit. Scripture tells us the wicked are like grass that dries out over a period of time.
God knows what's best for us and He brought us out of that old way of life which is crucial to have in remembrance if we are going to serve God faithfully.
And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever. Exodus 14:13
What a good admonition we read here in scripture. When the devil attacks and we go through mind battles we need to "stand still and see the salvation of the Lord".
God will fight for us!
The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace. Exodus 14:14
When we stand still and wait on God others will see it and know our faith.
and took off their chariot wheels, that they drave them heavily: so that the Egyptians said, Let us flee from the face of Israel; for the LORD fighteth for them against the Egyptians. Exodus 14:25
Read all of Exodus 14
Question: How long did it take for the Israelites to forget all that God did for them?
We must not forget to praise God and remember what He did for us when He saved us from spiritual Egypt!
