Do you have a smart pet? Take a look at these impressive problem-solvers:
These are hilarious - mostly because they aren't my animals! But think about the motivation that inspired the trial and error and countless attempts before they mastered the escape technique! We're only seeing the result of all of the work.
Being imprisoned is undoubtedly frustrating and usually leads to focused dreams and determination to get free. That's where we'll be picking up The Story this Sunday: the Israelites have been enslaved in Egypt for over 400 years! But God's UPPER story plan is still at work and He has a jail break plan He's ready to put into action - one that is WAY more spectacular and unexpected than even the most clever animal in the video!
But, when it really comes down to it, we're all in need of a jail break. Our prisons don't always have physical bars, but that doesn't mean they're any less debilitating. As you read chapter 4 of The Story (Exodus 1-17) take some time to consider how you need God to set you free. He's more than capable and ready to do it!
I hope to see you this Sunday, October 5th!
