EXODUS 7:5 NLT | “WHEN I RAISE MY POWERFUL HAND AND BRING OUT THE ISRAELITES, THE EGYPTIANS WILL KNOW THAT I AM THE LORD.”
Oftentimes, principalities and powers gather intentionally to obstruct, oppress, harm or destroy God’s chosen ones. Especially, when they sense non-compliance by God’s people to their negative agendas and plans.
They mutter in secret that you cannot make it or excel in life without their support or backing. Anyway, always remember that this is just an attempt to exalt themselves and make you think they matter more than is the case in your life and destiny. Thereby, achieving the enemy’s sole aim of shifting your focus and trust away from the Lord, so he can shape and control the narrative of your life. Don’t fall for this trap because your God is bigger and greater than it all.
Israel experienced this when their time of slavery in Egypt ended and it was time to leave. Pharaoh refused to let Israel go and his heart remained hardened even after several deadly plagues, which made his wisest magicians concede they couldn’t deal with the situation anymore.
EXODUS 8:19 NLT | ““THIS IS THE FINGER OF GOD!” THE MAGICIANS EXCLAIMED TO PHARAOH. BUT PHARAOH’S HEART REMAINED HARD. HE WOULDN’T LISTEN TO THEM, JUST AS THE LORD HAD PREDICTED.”
What happened next? The arrogance of Pharaoh was brought to nothing and sunk below ground level in the sea by the superiority of God’s might. God bypassed Pharaoh and released the people of Israel from the shackles of Egypt’s domination and oppression without Pharaoh’s consent.
EXODUS 14:28 NLT | “THEN THE WATERS RETURNED AND COVERED ALL THE CHARIOTS AND CHARIOTEERS—THE ENTIRE ARMY OF PHARAOH. OF ALL THE EGYPTIANS WHO HAD CHASED THE ISRAELITES INTO THE SEA, NOT A SINGLE ONE SURVIVED.”
This is exactly what will happen in your life. Those who caused you pain, denied you and exalted themselves above God in any area of your life, will face the fiery wrath of God. All their thinking, plans and projections will be thwarted. Their opinion or consent will not be sought, neither will it matter. Instead, they will end up acknowledging your God at the obvious realisation He calls the shots in your life; not them.
So, now is not the time to back down or cave in to the ridiculous demands of the enemy. Instead, stand your ground by trusting God completely and you will see His great power manifest in your life and eliminate those challenging situations.
God is doing this; delivering you mightily and setting you free from all human opinion with its many disadvantages because He loves you, delights in your happiness and wants you to succeed in life and destiny.
LUKE 10:18 NLT | ““YES,” HE TOLD THEM, “I SAW SATAN FALL FROM HEAVEN LIKE LIGHTNING!””
Give Him your praise!
