He Brought You Out So He could Bring You In!

And he brought us out from thence, that he might bring us in, to give us the land which he sware unto our fathers (Deuteronomy 6:23, KJV)

Think about a moment in your life when freedom led to a new beginning. It’s thrilling to break free, but what comes after is often where the real journey begins. The Exodus of Israel from Egypt into the Promised Land teaches us a compelling truth about two parts of our salvation: deliverance and inheritance, which have a fascinating relationship.

God initiated His plan with Israel by freeing them from Egypt. Before they arrived in the Promised Land, He led them out of slavery. Similarly, in Christ, we start with liberation—from sin, death, and darkness. As Simon asserts in Luke 1:74 (ESV), “that we, being delivered from the hand of our enemies, might serve him without fear.” 

Our initial deliverance occurs at salvation through Christ. Continuing to submit to God’s Word and Spirit, He sanctifies us, breaking every chain that binds us. It is impossible to serve God effectively when we are still in bondage to sinful lifestyles, lust, fears, anxieties, addictions, demonic oppressions, etc. Thus, He wants us free—completely and always. 

God delivered Israel to bring them into the land of their inheritance. So deliverance is a pathway, not the destination. Yet, as God’s precious children, we often fight the same bondages, failing to move from deliverance to enjoying their inheritance. Sadly, some believers fight the same enemies and bondages throughout their Christian lives. 

Our Christian walk is more than fighting off sin and darkness every day—we are in battle, but fighting is not all that He called us to do. Instead, our inheritance, the reason for our deliverance, is to enjoy living life in fellowship with God, as Adam did in the Garden before the fall, and better.  He wants us to immerse ourselves in His presence, to feel the joy of being close to Him, and to access the incredible power and wisdom He offers. God doesn’t want us to always wrestle with the same old fears, sins, or traps. He frees us so we can step into all the good things He has planned for us. Therefore, seek to go beyond the deliverance zone, a realm of endless battles without victory, into the inheritance arena, where you revel in the splendor of God’s presence and daily victory.


Reflect on your spiritual life. Are you lingering in the ‘deliverance zone’, or have you advanced to the ‘inheritance arena’?

Apply the Word

Deliverance is the precursor to inheritance. Don’t let the same battles consume your Christian life. Aim to cross from daily deliverance to daily enjoyment of your eternal life inheritance in Christ.


Seek the Spirit’s guidance to discern aspects of your life that still need deliverance and transition into living fully in your God-given inheritance.
