God did not deliver the children of Israel out of Egypt so that they could enjoy the Promised Land. He freed them from bondage so they could come to know and worship Him. Three months after they left Egypt, God reminded His people why He had delivered them “on eagles’ wings.“ It was to bring the people to Himself. We are so activity oriented that we assume we were saved for a task we are to perform rather than for a relationship to enjoy. God uses our activities and circumstances to bring us to Himself. When He gives us a God-sized assignment, its sure impossibility brings us back to Him for His enabling. When God allows us to go through crises, it brings us closer to Him. If we are not careful, we can inadvertently bypass relationship in order to get on with the activity. When you are busy in your activity for God, remember that God leads you to the experiences in order to bring you to Himself.
