Exodus 3:8, “I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land unto a good land and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey…”
Oh what blessed words. Although God is high and lifted up above all, yet He comes down to where we are. Psalm 113:6 tells us that He “humbles himself to behold the things that are in the heavens and in the earth.” David the Psalmist is in awe as he asks the question, “What is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you visit him? (Psalm 8:4) God wants to become personally involved in our lives.
When God came to deliver the children of Israel, He “came down” to them. He came right down to where they were suffering and made bare His mighty right arm on their behalf. God will also “come down” to you, into the midst of your life, your home, and your circumstances. Yes, dear mother, He will come down to you, right there in your kitchen.
Are you feeling despair, frustration and helplessness? Cry out to the Lord. He will come down to you. He will manifest Himself to you. He wants to fill your kitchen and your home with His Presence and His glory.
There is no situation too low to which God will not come down!

Why does God come down? God said in Exodus 3:16-17, “I have surely visited you, and seen that which is done to you in Egypt: and I have said, I will bring you up out of the affliction of Egypt unto… a land flowing with milk and honey.” He came down to the children of Israel to deliver them out of their bondage and bring them into a large place. God comes down to your need, not to grovel there with you, but to lift you up! To bring you out! To set you free!

“Oh Lord, I thank you that you come down to meet me in my need. I thank you that you are such a wonderful and personal God. Lord, please help me to keep a soft and humble heart before you, because even though you dwell in the high and holy place, you promise to come down to revive the heart of the contrite ones. Thank you, Lord. Amen.”
“God comes down to our lowest to lift us to his highest. He comes down to our saddest to lift us to His joyfullest. He comes down to our helplessness to succour with His great might.” F. B. Meyer
