You Shall Not Go Empty- Handed
Scripture Text: And I will make the Egyptians favorably disposed toward this people, so that when you leave you will not go empty-handed. Exodus 3: 21
The children of Israel served the Egyptians for several years. Finally, God raised Moses to tell Pharaoh to let His people go to worship Him, but Pharaoh refused. Later Pharaoh agreed that they could go, but told them to go empty.
Then Pharaoh summoned Moses and said, “Go, worship the Lord. Even your women and children may go with you; only leave your flocks and herds behind.” Exodus 10:24
However, when they finally left, they went out with great riches.
The Israelites did as Moses instructed and asked the Egyptians for articles of silver and gold and for clothing. The Lord had made the Egyptians favorably disposed toward the people, and they gave them what they asked for; so they plundered the Egyptians. Exodus 12:35-36
Peter went fishing and on that night they caught nothing. When they were about to go back home empty, Jesus stepped into their situation.
They caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break. So they signaled their partners in the other boat to come and help them, and they came and filled both boats so full that they began to sink. Luke 5 :1-10
When Jacob left Canaan he owned nothing except a walking stick. He worked for Laban for about 20 years. Laban wanted Jacob to return home empty.
God, however, did not allow this to happen. Jacob returned home with huge possessions provided by God miraculously. Genesis 32:10
Naomi felt emptiness in her life after losing everything. She said these words, “I went away full, but the Lord has brought me back empty.” Ruth 1:21
God heard the heartfelt cry of Naomi. Ruth worked in the field of Boaz. While returning home, Boaz heaped over six measures of barley into the shawl of Ruth as a gift to Naomi.
“Don’t go back to your mother-in-law empty-handed.” Ruth 3:17. These are the words of Boaz to Ruth.
He will change all the unpleasant situations of life. Your prayers will be answered. Your prophesies will be fulfilled. What has been stolen from you will be restored. God will not allow you to be put to shame.
Yes, the righteous shall never lack any good thing.
Those who live trusting in the Lord will never go empty handed. He will fulfil the longings of your heart and deliver you from all your bondage.
You will be blessed. Do not lose heart!
God Bless You.
