THE SURE WORD FOR TODAY'S QUOTATION FOR THE WEEK:
MY GOD WILL FIGHT FOR ME.
Stand Still and See — Part 2.
And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever.
Exodus 14:13 KJV).
The only group of Jews that escaped enslavement was the tribe of Levi. Levi was the last of Jacob's sons to die, and his influence over his tribe was significant and lasting. They had taken over the Torah academy Jacob had established in Goshen, and they instructed the children of Israel in the knowledge of God and His holy teachings. The Levites were occupied with spiritual matters and did not mix with the Egyptians, while many of their brethren had given up their old customs and way of life.
Except for their language, clothing, and names, many of the children of Israel had become assimilated into their Egyptian neighbours' social and cultural environment, and they were the ones to arouse the wrath of the Egyptians. Therefore, only the children of Levi were spared the slavery and oppression that the Egyptians imposed upon the rest of Israel.
You need to have faith in God. Faith is not logic. Faith is defined as complete trust and confidence in God. There is no room for logic where mountain-moving faith exists. Faith takes over where logic can no longer tread. Despite the worldwide spread of the Coronavirus, you are not giving in because you trust God. You believe the report of the Lord and not the report in the airwaves. God said he would protect and guide you. God said the Coronavirus plague will not come near your dwelling. Since God is for you, who or what can be against you? You need to trust in God.
After the fervent prayers of the Israelites, God appointed Moses to lead his children out of Egypt. But when Moses confronted Pharaoh and demanded Israel's release, Pharaoh refused. So, God sent ten plagues to punish Pharaoh for his stubbornness and force Pharaoh to free Israel. After the tenth plague, Pharaoh released the Israelites.
Whenever it's like your prayers are not answered, don't worry, God hears you. God is never early; he is never late. God is always right on time.
