Out of Egypt


When you change the way you think, you change the way you live.

2 Chronicles 36:4

"Then the king of Egypt made Jehoahaz's brother Eliakim king over Judah and Jerusalem, and changed his name to Jehoiakim. And Necho took Jehoahaz his brother and carried him off to Egypt." NKJV

Throughout the Bible, we see Egypt presented as a picture of sin. It was a land of great wealth and power, but to Israel, it was a land of captivity and bondage. As Christians, we live in a world that is much like Egypt. The world desires to see us in bondage to its system. Whether you call it the "rat race" or "keeping up with the Joneses", the world system will only leave you wanting more. Friend, we need to get off that train because it's headed nowhere except over a cliff.

Philippians 2:5 "Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus," NKJV

Instead of letting the world dictate our life, we need to let God have control. Let the Word of God go into your eyes, your ears, your brain and your heart so that it will begin changing you from the inside out. Don't be fooled by the "riches" of Egypt; rather, experience the true riches of God.

Life Lesson: Change the way you think, and you change the way you live.

Dear God,

Give me eyes to see and a heart to receive Your Word. Help me to overcome the worldly way of thinking and instead begin thinking like Jesus. I pray that today would be the day that I change my life by walking in obedience to You. In Jesus' name, Amen.
