Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
(Exodus 6:23 - 7:25)
“Showdown in Egypt”
Text: Exodus 7:4-5
“But Pharaoh will not heed you, so that I may lay My hand on Egypt and bring My armies and My people, the children of Israel, out of the land of Egypt by great judgments.
And the Egyptians shall know that I am the LORD, when I stretch out My hand on Egypt and bring out the children of Israel from among them.”
“Showdown in Egypt,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
Every day there is “a Showdown in Egypt” when Good Faces Off With Evil. Almighty God Faces Off With the devil. God and satan both have their Representatives; in this Showdown Moses is standing in God’s Place - and Pharaoh is standing in satan’s place.
The Purpose of this Showdown is so “the Egyptians shall know that I am the LORD, when I stretch out My hand on Egypt and bring out the children of Israel from among them.”
God is allowing Pharaoh to harden his heart of rebellion so that God’s Awesome Power can be displayed through His Judgements on Egypt!
Pharaoh’s imitation snakes are swallowed up with God’s snake, and Egypt’s precious idol of the Nile is polluted by blood from God’s judgement for the blood of Israel that has been spilled as slaves.
God Made Moses His Representative before Pharaoh, and as Representative God empowered Moses with full authority to Speak and Act on His behalf!
God Spoke when Moses spoke, and when Moses Spoke Aaron Prophesied before Pharaoh!
Listen up Warrior!
The purpose of these Showdowns in our life is so that the people in the “Egypt” of this world will know that Our God is Almighty God. The people will See this Showdown taking place in our life as “a letter known and read by all people.” (2Corin.3:2-3).
God has empowered you and I with full authority to Speak and Act on His behalf!
“Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.” (2Corin.5:20)
“Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world.” (1John 4:17)
“Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”(Luke 10:19).
I’m afraid that for too many believers today the Showdown has become a Backdown in the Egypt of this world. Many don’t realize the Absolute Power and Authority they hold; because they don’t read, and meditate daily on the Word of God, and they don’t apply the Word of God to their life.
For the Warrior that does not know their weapons and their authority, their Showdown will become a humiliating Backdown.....
Moses was empty of himself, convinced of his inability; and God filled Moses up with His Power and Authority and Holy Boldness - Moses Stood In God’s Place at this Showdown in Egypt.
That’s what the Warrior needs to do Today!
Know who you are Warrior; dirt Empowered By God as His Representative with His full authority to Speak and to Act on His Behalf. This is How We Pray and This is How We Live! Every Battlefield is a “Showdown in Egypt;” and for the Righteous Warrior the Showdown becomes a “Takedown,” of the devil! Ooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
