Exodus 14:3

“For Pharaoh will say of the children of Israel, they are entangled in the land the wilderness hath shut them in.”

Nothing can shut the people of God in.  Pharaoh thought he had Israel between a rock and a hard place But God let Pharaoh know that His people are uncontainable because He is uncontainable.

The night before Israel came out of Egypt God instructed them to take a lamb without blemish and take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of their houses because He would pass through the land of Egypt that night and smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt both man and beast.  The blood would be a token upon their houses and when He saw the blood He would pass over them (Exd. 12:1-13).  When Pharaoh and all of Egypt rose up in the night and found all their firstborn dead he called for Moses and Aaron by night, and said “rise up, and get you forth from among my people, both ye and the children of Israel; and go, serve the Lord, as ye have said” (Exd. 12:31).  It was the blood of the Lamb that opened the doors of Egypt and set the people of God free and it was the blood of the Lamb that made a way for them in the wilderness.  When you are covered in the blood nothing can shut you in because the blood of Jesus is uncontainable.

When Peter was thrown in jail by Herod he was bound in chains between two soldiers and there were soldiers outside his cell. The enemy thought he had Peter shut in but Peter was covered in the blood.  The angel of the Lord came and led Peter out of that jail, right from between the soldiers pass the soldiers on the outside of his cell and out the front doors of the prison (Acts 12:1-19).  Peter couldn’t be contained because the blood of Jesus is uncontainable.

Where are you today, do you feel like you’re between a rock and a hard place?  Are you feeling like you’re shut in?  Does your situation look like there is no way out?  The blood of Jesus opens doors the blood of Jesus makes ways out of no way.  Don’t be distracted by the enemy, he can’t hold you in because he can’t hold the blood of Jesus in.  He tried and failed.  Jesus rose up with the keys of hell and death (Rev. 1:18).

Child of God you’re not just coming out, you’re coming out with power and substance.  You’re coming out with a high hand!
