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. The only way out for them to survive was to now release the people of Israel immediately. The liberation of Israel was imminent. They were asked to leave Egypt with such haste. They were out of the grip of the Egyptians! God knows how to get you out of the grip of your enemies with such ease. He knows where to hit to break their pride. Like Israel God can change your story! He will break 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.
