OUR GOD IS AWESOME
29 At midnight the Lord struck down all the firstborn in Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh, who sat on the throne, to the firstborn of the prisoner, who was in the dungeon, and the firstborn of all the livestock as well.
30 Pharaoh and all his officials and all the Egyptians got up during the night, and there was loud wailing in Egypt, for there was not a house without someone dead.
31 During the night Pharaoh summoned Moses and Aaron and said, “Up! Leave my people, you and the Israelites! Go, worship the Lord as you have requested.
32 Take your flocks and herds, as you have said, and go. And also bless me.”
Make me hear joy and gladness, that the bones You have broken may rejoice (Psalm 51:8).
We are serving the powerful, marvellous, omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent God-the Almighty. There is nothing He cannot do. He calls things that are not as if they were, and such come into existence. He controls all thing and rules in the affairs of man (cf. Psa. 115:3). He enthrones and dethrones. Any ruler who does His will, will have his throne established forever. The reverse befalls the wicked ones. Ask Pharaoh and Nebuchadnezzar. To Him alone be the glory, honour and adoration.
In today’s devotion, we consider how the omnipotent God determines who hears a dirge or a joyful song. God visited the home of every Egyptian, killing their firstborns, and causing them to hear sad songs. They were all plunged into mourning/wailing overnight. Conversely, He caused the Israelites to hear the shout of freedom. What a distinction! May that be your own experience, in Jesus’ name-shouts of joy!
He has the unchallengeable power to make everyone worldwide to experience anything. For instance, the COVID-19 experience is still fresh in our memories. He touched the stubborn Egyptians and their king; they can never forget Him. They had no choice than to dance to His will in the end, despite their initial stubbornness.
In 2 Kings 7:1-20, to bring His promised abundance to pass, God caused the Syrians to flee, leaving every of their provisions. May God arise on your behalf to fulfil His eternal purpose for you, the enemies plans notwithstanding. Amen.
