Exodus 6.6-8 Wherefore say unto the children of Israel, I am the Lord, and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will rid you out of their bondage, and I will redeem you with a stretched out arm, and with great judgments: And I will take you to me for a people, and I will be to you a God: and ye shall know that I am the Lord your God, which bringeth you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians. And I will bring you in unto the land, concerning the which I did swear to give it to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob; and I will give it you for an heritage: I am the Lord.
In these accounts of God’s dealings with the children of Israel regarding their deliverance from bondage in Egypt, He repeatedly makes the statement, “I will.” Dear ones in Jesus, this is our God. He is not only the Great I Am, He is also the Great I will. It is our great God Who brings us out of bondage. It is our great God Who redeems us with an outstretched arm. It is our great God Who takes us to be His people. It is our great God Who will bring us to our heavenly home.
In this world there are many kinds of snares and burdens. None of which we are capable of doing anything about. Like the children of Israel, we often see ourselves groaning and reeling under the weight of the oppression and hardness of life’s challenges. Yes, life is full of challenges and trials, but Jesus has come to deliver us and walk with us every step of the way. When the dark clouds of circumstances are getting the best of you and making you feel like God has forsaken you. Jesus takes you by the hand and brings you to the foot of His cross. It is there that He demonstrated His love. Beloved, Jesus is still The Great I Will. His stretched out arms on Calvary have provided a redemption that is just as true today as when He delivered Israel out of Egypt. Trust Him, dear ones, for He is faithful.
