“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.” (Exodus 14:28).
Something to reflect on for a minute, do you know that God is never under any pressure at all when the devil mounts up attacks against you or when you face challenging circumstances? The devil likes to give impression of himself has a fearsome lion ready to devour everything in his path. But, you don’t have to be fooled by his deceptive look. There is only ONE LION, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, Jesus Christ! (Revelation 5:5). Satan is a defeated foe. In fact, he is under your feet.
In Exodus 14, the Israelites had toiled in hard labour under their Egyptian slave masters for 400 years. God has just delivered them with a mighty hand from Pharaoh. And now, on the way to their promised land, they were confronted with the red sea preventing them from moving forward. And behind them, Pharaoh was in hot pursuit with 600 hundred chariots with their horse men and his entire army! And all Israel had was a ROD! The only weapon on their side was the Rod of Moses. Can you imagine the scene? Imagine the confusion, terror and chaos!
But watch Moses’ response; “But Moses told the people, Don’t be afraid. Just stand still and watch the Lord rescue you today. The Egyptians you see today will never be seen again. The Lord himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.” And the Lord did!
Beloved, because you are in Christ you don’t need to panic. The Rod of Authority is in your mouth. Speak life! God watches over His Word to bring it to pass. (Jeremiah 1:12). Maybe you have been diagnosed with incurable disease. You have lost your job. Your loved one is hooked on drugs and they are walking on the edge of hell. My friend, fear not! Don’t cast away your confidence. God will fight for you, as you boldly declared and stand on the promise of the Lord for you. It is well with you in Jesus name.
Prayer Confession: Thank you Father that no weapon forged against me will prosper. By faith in the Word of God, I am making progress and making my way forward to victory. I am fully conscious of the presence of the Lord in me. I refuse worry and anxiety for the battle belongs to the Lord. Every power assigned against me shall fall. Every tongue speaking destruction over me shall be silenced and proved wrong in Jesus name. The blood of Jesus has justified me and is speaking good things on my behalf. I am planted in righteousness and established in peace. The Lion of Judah is my defence and salvation. I am a winner in life! In Jesus Name. Amen!
Reflection: “No weapon turned against you will succeed.You will silence every voice raised up to accuse you. These benefits are enjoyed by the servants of the Lord; their vindication will come from me. I, the Lord, have spoken!” (Isaiah 54:17).
