Passover, or Pesach, is the biblical feast that remembers God's mighty intervention when He delivered Israel from slavery in Egypt some 3500 years ago. Passover also foreshadows our personal deliverance from bondage to sin and irrevocable separation from our old task master. Read more about the striking parallels of the Passover story and God's dealing with us personally.
What is the purpose of having faith when we feel the wind blowing in our sails? When we see the sun shining on us, and we find goodness and blessings along our way? Isn’t rather that faith when we have no reason to believe? When we actually cannot see “the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living”?
If waiting on the LORD renews our strength, then why on earth do we keep running ahead of Him? We cannot stand unanswered prayer for too long, and since we like being in control, we take matters into our own hands. Maybe we give it a religious labelling (“I’m stepping out in faith”); while really we are fed up with waiting on God and try to push Him to start moving.
Sometimes it looks as if it's over! Your life, dreams, hope. Take heart - God isn't finished with you yet!
