“But when the magicians tried to produce gnats by their secret arts, they could not. And the gnats were on men and animals. The magicians said to Pharaoh, this is the finger of God’.
~Exodus 8: 18
Moses performed many amazing miracles in the land of Egypt by the power of God. God had given the children of Israel a promise of deliverance from the land of slavery and bondage. Pharaoh, however, resisted their exodus. Moses then resorted to performing miraculous acts in a bid to get Pharaoh to change his mind.
However, to his chagrin, Pharaoh’s magicians will use their secret art to duplicate his results. Moses turned the River Nile into blood; effortlessly the magicians repeated what he did. When Moses stretched out his staff over the streams and frogs covered the land, the magicians performed their acts and frogs also appeared. So in the eyes of Pharaoh and the rest of the people, Moses had nothing special to offer. Moses couldn’t command Pharaoh’s attention.
This deplorable situation continued until on a certain occasion, something different happened. Moses and his assistant Aaron produced gnats on the land by the help of God. This tiime when the magicians tried to produce the same result by their magic, they could not. They tried again and again, but to their utter dismay, their magical tricks failed them. They were unable to duplicate the miracle of Moses for the first time. And with awe and respect for Moses in their voice, they declared to Pharaoh, ‘This must be the finger of God.’
Essentially, the magicians said to Pharaoh, ‘This kind of result can only happen by the power of God.’ This feat could only have been engineered by God.
The finger of God talks about the signature of God; the manifestations of God; the results of God. It is those accomplishments that cannot be reproduced by human ingenuity. The finger of God speaks of those manifestations that can only happen by the direct intervention of God in your life. The finger of God are those results that the world cannot reproduce by their skills, intelligence, and ingenuity.
Expect the finger of God this season. Expect to see results and manifestations that can only happen by the power of God working in your life. Believe God this season for great miracles.
