Egypt served initially a place of refuge for Israel. In time, pharaoh and the people in the land that saved them became their oppressors. When we choose not to acknowledge the truth and respond to it, we choose bondage to sin and become our own oppressor. Satan’s ultimate goal is to destroy you. God’s ultimate goal is to give you eternal life. If we do not obey God, we become our own pharaoh and choose sin and death.
