“Therefore, say to the people of Israel: ‘I am the Lord. I will free you from your oppression and will rescue you from your slavery in Egypt. I will redeem you with a powerful arm and great acts of judgment.Exodus 6:6
Even as Passover is being observed now in the natural, I believe that many are quickly passing over and transitioning into their next season and assignment. The Jewish holiday of Passover commemorates the exodus of the Jews from slavery into their new, promised land. This holiday is ultimately a celebration of freedom. Even so, the Lord is bringing many out of their own season of confinement—out of their personal Egypt—and into their next chapter: a chapter of freedom and restoration.
“This is a time of tying up loose ends, a closing of one season and a passing over to the next. Do not fear the changes that are upon you,” says the Lord, “for what I am leading you into will require courage and boldness. Even so, know this: everywhere your feet tread, I will give you the land (Joshua 1:3). In what looks like risk, you will find great reward.
“There will be some who make false assumptions about what I’m doing in your life; they will criticize you as you cross over into your new assignment. Do not be discouraged! Remain in a posture of worship and humility, and resist the urge to explain or defend yourself. Even in the opposition, My favor and My hand are strong upon you. Look not to the right or to the left (Proverbs 4:27), but keep your focus on Me. I resist the proud, but give much grace to the humble (James 4:6).
“You have been in a long season of hiding and preparation, and I have been doing a mighty work in you through it all. Your next chapter is here. Get ready, because now you are passing over into the new.”
If you are willing and obedient, you will eat the good things of the land.Isaiah 1:19
