This section pictures a new exodus for a people once again oppressed as the Israelites had been as slaves in Egypt before God’s deliverance. They would cry to God and again He would hear and deliver them. A new exodus would take place through a new desert. The past miracles were nothing compared to what God would do for His own in the future through faith in Jesus Christ.
Questions for further thought:
1. How often am I guilty of looking back and not looking forward to the good things God will do?
2. How can I change those tendencies going forward?
Challenge: Commit to remembering God is always good and to looking forward to the good things He is willing to supply. He is rich in mercy and desires to give us the desires of His heart. Don’t make permanent decisions based on temporary emotions or feelings.
