Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
(Exod.2:23 - 3:22)
"The Making of A Leader"
"But I am sure that the king of Egypt will not let you go, no, not even by a mighty hand. So I will stretch out My hand and strike Egypt with all My wonders which I will do in its midst; and after that he will let you go."
Leadership is on the menu for Breakfast this morning.
Leadership is birthed in the furnace of affliction, and Egypt is a picture of sin's furnace of affliction. Like satan, the king of sin, Pharoah will not let Israel leave the furnace without a fight!
Joseph went from "the Pit to the Palace. Moses was born with a death sentence on his life and raised in a Palace for 40 years, then Shepherded his father-in-law's sheep for another 40 years, to lead Israel out of Egypt into their Promised Land for the last 40 years of his life. Moses' entire life was pretty much a furnace of affliction - that's why he was such a great leader. Leadership is birthed and grown in the furnace of affliction.
Our Commander Jesus Himself was birthed in affliction as a "Root out of dry ground, and a man of sorrows acquainted with grief"(Isa.53:2-3). As Son of Man it was prophesied by Hosea: "I have called My Son out our Egypt" (Hosea11:1) and fulfilled in Matt.2:14-15).
Warriors are born in affliction and grown in affliction. We call this spiritual warfare, combat! We died at the altar of repentance (Gal.2:20), and were born again into a new life (2Corin.5:17). Our life is a"plan of good works specifically designed for us to walk in (Eph.2:10); empowered by Holy Spirit, full of "tribulations in this world (John 16:33), and miraculous victories!
Yes, like Israel, the more satan afflicts us - the more we grow and multiply! Our Stubborn Love and Faithfulness to our Commander drives the devil crazy!
We are born to be Leaders and we are expected to make leaders of all the people that we lead - that's the Normal Christian Life!
We are "the Gold" of our Commander and King - tried and proven in the Furnace of Affliction. Ooooh Rah!
