Sunday 14th July, 2019: Break the chains of Stagnation
For four hundred and thirty years the LORD allowed the Israelites to be enslaved and mistreated by the Egyptians (Gen. 15:13-14). At the fullness of time when the Children of Israel cried to the LORD, He delivered them from the Egyptian slavery and took them to the promised Land (Exod. 3:7-10; 12:40-41).
Unlike the Egyptian slavery which was not a consequence of Israels sin, the Babylonian captivity was as a result of Israel’s persistent disobedience to God and His commandments. However when seventy years was completed the LORD delivered the Israelites from their captors, returned them back to the promised land and punished the Babylonians for their wickedness (Jer. 29:10).
If God could and did deliver the children of Israel from the bondages they suffered for many years, He will also deliver you today from the Chains of Stagnation as we worship Him in Spirit and in Truth.
