Exodus 13:7-8 NKJV
Unleavened bread shall be eaten seven days. And no leavened bread shall be seen among you, nor shall leaven be seen among you in all your quarters. And you shall tell your son in that day, saying, ‘This is done because of what the Lord did for me when I came up from Egypt.’
God instructed the children of Israel to celebrate the feast of unleavened bread as a reminder of what He did for them when they came out of Egypt. They were to look at something they could see to remind them of the power of the unseen realm. Their escape from Egypt did not come about because of natural weapons or human schemes. It came because the mighty hand of a good God performed signs and wonders to bring their deliverance. It was a power that was unseen, but they saw the effects of it with their physical eyes. It is good to surround ourselves with things that remind us of the unseen power we depend upon for victory and success in our lives. One reason we gather with other believers to worship the Lord and learn His teachings is to remind us of the unseen Source that we all rely on. People who stop coming to church usually stray away from God because they get distracted with other things and voices that go against God. May we continue to participate in services that honor the Lord, and surround ourselves with things that keep us conscious of the unseen realm where all of our help comes from.
