In the book of Genesis, God told Abraham that his descendants will be sojourners in a foreign land for four hundred years as slaves and will be greatly tortured. But He; God will bring judgment upon the host nation. Truly, through Joseph, the children of Israel entered Egypt as free-born and things were initially palatable. But after some time, they became slaves when a Pharaoh that knew not Joseph got on the throne. God said four hundred years but it was until four hundred and thirty years before the machinery of deliverance was put in place in the physical. Many were born as slaves and died as slaves. Many never had hope for freedom for they didn’t know about the prophecy that had gone ahead of them.
God raised up Moses and equipped him for the task of delivering the Israelites from the land of bondage. God first revealed the situation of His people to him in a parable of the burning bush. The Bush was burning but not consumed. It meant despite the affliction of the people, they were not subdued. The man Moses, the former fugitive turned deliverer showed up and pharaoh refused to let the Israelites go.
The devil will never give up without a fight, the more reason you must force him. The devil through the magicians confronted Moses. Moses performed signs to prove his authenticity and the magicians did likewise. When God stepped up His act through Moses, the magicians recognized God’s hand and gave up, but pharaoh didn’t. Eventually, God broke pharaoh and the people were urged to go. For all the years of labour, the Egyptians paid for it. Exodus 12:35-36 “And the children of Israel did according to the word of Moses; and they borrowed of the Egyptians jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment: And the LORD gave the people favour in the sight of the Egyptians so that they lent unto them such things as they required. And they spoiled the Egyptians”.
No matter the situation you met on ground in your family or lineage, God’s power will put an end to it. People may not see your challenge and even envy you, but you recognized there is a problem like the parable of the burning bush, God will put an end to it in Jesus name. It was in the night that all the firstborn were killed, tonight determine to keep vigil to lay your petition before the throne of grace.
Prayer point: Arise o Lord and destroy every strong man against my destiny in Jesus name.
