It’s for healing in our lives. In the book of Exodus the 12th. Chapter, After many plagues being put on him and his people, King Pharoah finally let the children of Isreal go. And at that point the Egyptians were urgent and in a hurry for them to leave. And the Egyptians said in the 33rd. verse, “We be all dead men.” They knew that those people had been being held against the will of the sovereign God. So they were in essence pushing them out. But when they left and they left their old way of life behind them like God had instructed them. Their old attitudes. Their old mindsets. Their old ways of thinking. Their old ways of life. They let all of that go. They did not go out empty handed, they went out blessed. It says in the 35th. verse that the children of Israel borrowed of the Egyptians jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment (clothes. Beautiful elaborate clothes). And they lent them everything that they required. They literally spoiled or ravaged, the Egyptians. The children of Isreal literally walked out of Egypt with a whole lot more than what they even originally went in with. They walked out rich, because they obeyed God through the man of God. God didn’t talk to them, He talked to Moses, and he conveyed the words of God to them. Even with Moses initially making every excuse in the world why HE was not qualified to lead the children of Isreal out of Egypt, (I scared. I can’t speak well. They won’t listen to me. Who am I? And on and on), God still got them WHAT they needed to succeed in the wilderness and got them WHERE it is that He wanted them to go. They left a land of poverty, hard labor and slavery, only to go to a land of no lack. To that rich and prosperous place. A land flowing with milk and honey. The promised land.
Its time to leave the past behind us, or as I love it when Pumba on the children’s annimated movie, “The Lion King” says, “Leave your behind, in the past.” But the time is short. The word of God says, the time is at hand, even closer than when we first believed. The anger; the hurt; the pains; the unforgiveness; the disappointments; the annimosities; EVERYTHING! It is time to let it go, and move on with our lives. If the children of Israel had not left Egypt, they would never have seen the promised land. It’s time for us to leave Egypt behind. It’s time for us to allow the slavery of our minds, souls and spirits to be released. Everthing that is holding us. Everything that is binding us. WE must let it go, so that we can see, the Promised Land. If we are unwilling to move forward, then we will be left behind. And we will remain enslaved in our hearts and minds. It’s time for healing in our hearts, minds, bodies, souls and spirits. Literally.
