For the Lord your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory. (Deuteronomy 20:4)
Acquaint now thyself with him, and be at peace: thereby good shall come unto thee. Receive, I pray thee, the law from his mouth, and lay up his words in thine heart. (Job 22:21-22)
The story of Exodus is a story of miracles. When Moses first appeared before Pharaoh to deliver the children of Israel, instead of being thankful that someone was trying to help them receive deliverance, they were angry at Moses for petitioning the Pharaoh. The reason they were angry on Moses was because now the Pharaoh increased their hardships. Being so used to their slavery, they utterly failed to apprehend or appreciate the freedom that was soon approaching.
Yes, there was a temporary price: increased hardship and great pressure would set the stage for their final deliverance. There were times of hunger and thirst. There were times when they thought that God had left them and did not care for them. But through it all God was making a way for His people. Those who believed and continued with confidence finally reached their desired destiny of freedom.
The same can happen to us. It has often been said, “The darkest night is just before the dawn”. Perhaps the enemy senses that his defeat is close and then goes all out against you because he does not want you and your loved ones to go free. Perhaps the Lord also loves a good story with a really dramatic and climatic ending and great glory for His Name. Now, who does not like a good story.
In any case, don’t let yourself remain accustomed to any form of bondage. Seek and believe God for the victory no matter what! Don’t lose hope. Walk with confidence. Strengthen your faith by fasting and prayer. Go forth boldly declaring God’s Word over your situation and you will see positive results.
Confession: Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I shall not fear. The Lord is with me. He is my light and my life.
