Scripture Reading: Exodus 4:22-23
And thou shalt say unto Pharaoh, Thus saith the LORD, Israel is my son, even my firstborn: And I say unto thee, Let my son go, that he may serve me: and if thou refuse to let him go, behold, I will slay thy son, even thy firstborn.
Reflection: The scene was set for the battle. God was ready to release the people of Israel from Egyptian affliction. Pharaoh on the other hand was adamant to yield. He thought he could win the battle to keep israel still under his bondage. He had no idea what the people of Israel represented in God’s life. God however gives him a hint when He referred to Israel as his firstborn. This simply meant that the people of Israel were God’s special possession and therefore occupied a place of attention in his life. Evidently, the possessions of God (Creator) cannot be looted or messed up by the created. No wonder Pharaoh lost the battle in the end. You are God’s purchased possession (Ephesians 1:14). Like, Israel, No battle against your life can succeed. The ‘Pharaoh’ in your life will loose. Just see yourself as God’s possession. Walk and pray with this mentality and see the miraculous happen! Paul rightly declared thus ‘If God be for us who can be against us’ (Rom 8:31).
Confession: My life is God’s purchased possession. No battle against my life can succeed. Every Pharaoh in my life shall bow in Jesus name!
