Then the Lord told Moses, “Now you will see what I will do to Pharaoh. When he feels the force of my strong hand, he will let the people go. In fact, he will force them to leave his land!” Exodus 6:1 NLT
There are times in life when you are in a situation where your destiny and future are in the hands of someone else. That person can be a boss who is trying to do damage to your name and reputation. Or, that individual could be a family member, whose demands on your time and finances can have a negative impact on your future, if you allow the situation to continue. So it’s easy to understand how these people felt, when they were waiting for Pharaoh to allow them to leave.
In your own strength, it’s sometimes difficult to break free of the chains that bind you; much like the children of Israel in Egypt. Pharaoh believed that he was in control of their destiny. Moses also concluded that to some extent, Pharaoh was in control. Moses told God, “Ever since I came to Pharaoh as your spokesman, he has been even more brutal to your people. And you have done nothing to rescue them!” Exodus 5:23.
Moses didn’t understand that God had a plan. When your situation seems to be at its worst and the solution is a mystery; many times God is working out the details of your deliverance. It is not the time to give up; instead, dig in your heels and wait on God. Ephesians 3:20 says, “Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.” Imagine, Pharaoh changed his position from refusing to let them leave to forcing them to go. When God is at work, there is no need to lose hope; He will apply the force of His strong hand and He will shatter every yoke the enemy is using to keep you bound.
Thought for Today: Friend, take your eyes off the Pharaoh and trust God
Have a blessed day and walk in faith and victory.
