Day Two – הַיּוֹם שְׁנֵי יָמִים לָעמֶֹר
They shall know that I am the Lord their God who brought them out of the land of Egypt, that I might dwell among them; I am the Lord their God.
“Well, what do you know?”
This expression usually comes after an unexpected discovery; someone or something comes through in times of trouble and we feel good. The exodus from Egypt is a centerpiece in God’s redemptive history. As the people crossed the Red Sea they felt good and rejoiced! The truth revealed in God’s setting His people free remain with us even today. In knowing the Lord, we learn not just about Him but we understand the significance of that knowledge. He is the one who remains faithful to His word. He takes action to demonstrate His devotion. Are you experiencing that reality today? He brought His people out of Egypt and slavery so that He might be present with them—in their midst.
How well do we recognize the Lord among us? How does God’s forgiveness help me understand who He is and who I am in Him? How do I experience God’s redemption in the Exodus in my own life?
