Psalm 106:21 They forgat God their saviour, which had done great things in Egypt;
Often in the scripture we find Egypt used as a picture of the world around us. God brought the Children of Israel out of Egypt just as He takes His church out of the world today by salvation. God called the Children of Israel to be different from the rest of the world and their worldly beliefs as He has called today’s church to do the same. In the passage above, the Psalmist is clearly referring to the Jewish people. They were freed from their bondage in Egypt by the miracles God had done in the presence of the Pharaoh. This verse is referring to how God had freed them and provided for them in their journey. He had also prepared a land for them and turned it over to them when they arrived. Then He blessed the land and filled it with everything they could possibly need. However, all the things that God had given to them seemed to clutter their view of God. Over time, they had forgotten Him.
I do know this verse is about a time centuries ago. Nevertheless, the living Word of God is also proving Satan never changes his tactics. He is still using the same old tricks. People just forget. God brings a person out of sin, saves them, frees them from the bondage which sin once had on them, and gives them a brand-new home in heaven. God begins to bless their new life. The next thing you know, the things God has given them begins to cloud the view they once had of God. They forget from whom they received everything. Even a Nation that was once, “UNDER GOD…” now is UNDER ATTACK. The freedoms given by God are being taken away by Satan and the world. We all must remember who gave us this great land we love.
From where did God bring you? Besides saving you from a place called hell and making a home for you in heaven someday, think of His daily blessing you enjoy. Think for a moment and remember God’s goodness to you. Then thank Him for all His blessing on you today. Thank Him for our country. Now show Him you care. He can do great things again if we will do our part and trust Him.
