Egypt wasn’t a place you wanted to go to, it wasn’t a place God wanted his people to live, and it wasn’t a place you wanted to be from. At the same time, the biblical concept of Egypt also meant redemption and hope. God brought His people out of Egypt. Whenever “Egypt” was uttered, it was a reminder that somehow, some way, the “Egypt’s” of life would never be endless. With God’s mighty hand and His outstretched arm, he would always faithfully rescue His people from Egypt.
