  A Triumph Revealed

January 26, 2023
Daily Reading – Exodus 1-3 / Matthew 16

 

GOD’S WORD:

Exodus 3:19-20 And I am sure that the king of Egypt will not let you go, no, not by a mighty hand. And I will stretch out my hand, and smite Egypt with all my wonders which I will do in the midst thereof: and after that he will let you go.

 

GETTING INTO GOD’S WORD:

    Growing up as a little boy in a residential area of Michigan and attending a public school there, I had my share of run-ins with the other boys. At the time I was a spindly, tall, lanky lad with very little co-ordination. I guess that is another way of saying, I did not know how to fight. However, I never went into a battle with the other boys planning to get beat up. It just seemed to happen that way more often than not. Every so often, I would run up on someone who was a worse scrapper than I was, and I would win the altercation. Truth was, I never knew going into the fight, if I was going to win or lose.

 

  Moses is told in our verses today that he is about to do battle with Pharaoh. He is even told that initially it will appear as if he is losing the conflict. Moses is not really a fighter. He even tries to talk God out of using him. You might think that he was good at fighting because in every instance recorded in the first three chapters of Exodus, Moses wins his fights. He had won the fight with the Egyptian who was beating a Hebrew man in Exodus 2:12. He overtook the Shepherds who were bothering Jethro’s daughters while they watered the flocks in Exodus 2:17. Still, he did not feel like a warrior. Then God tells Moses, you will win in this fight because; “I will stretch out my hand, and smite Egypt with all my wonders.” In other words, Moses, It may seem rough at times, but this is a fight you just cannot lose.

 

GETTING GOD’S WORD INTO ME:

  As we go through life it may seem the old Devil is winning. Yet God revealed a triumph in this fight as well. 1 John 5:4 “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.”

 

Will you trust Him?
