Scripture Reading: Exodus 12:33
And the Egyptians were urgent upon the people, that they might send them out of the land in haste; for they said, We be all dead men.
Reflections: The story line had changed. The same people who oppressed the Israelites and had vowed to never let them enjoy liberty were now pleading and urging them to leave their country in haste. The Egyptians had come to the point where they knew that their god had become no match for the God of Israel. Their god had been rendered completely useless and powerless. All their first borns (man and animals) had been killed by the God of Israel and there was great wailing and mourning in every Egyptian house. Even the heir apparent to their throne lay dead. They could not hold on to their avowed position any longer. Their pride had been broken and they had no choice than to grant Israel freedom with immediate effect. Like Israel God can rewrite your story. You too will be granted freedom in areas where you are afflicted as God breaks the pride of your enemies.
Prayer: Oh God, change my story line. Break the pride of my enemies. Let me walk in liberation so that they will see how superior you are.
Confession: The pride of my enemy is broken by my God. I cannot be held captive in any way any longer. I walk in liberty. My God is acknowledged as Superior.
