DAY 14, Read Exodus.7:1-13
Key Verse: “And God spake unto Moses and said unto him, I am the Lord: And I appeared unto Abraham, and unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them” (Exodus 6:2-3).
As the writer of Hebrews puts it, God speaks through the ages “at sundry times and in diverse manners” (Hebrews 1:1). At particular times, he chooses to emphasize some issues which most likely are vital to his people. To overcome Pharaoh, it was not enough to know God as the Almighty. A new revelation of him as Jehovah was necessary.
We are presently living in a Kairos time. Like the children of Issachar, we need to understand the times, and know what to do. I believe one thing we need today is, the power of the mighty hand of God in our everyday lives. My prayer for you is that before the end of this devotional, according to Isaiah 53:1, the power available through the mighty hand of the Lord will be revealed to you. You cannot understand the power until you have received a revelation of who God is.
Secondly, Eccle.9:10 says: “Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with ALL thy might.” This is interesting and exciting. Whatsoever my hand finds to do- meaning I can do all things. Yes there is nothing impossible. The history of man proves this: man has gone to the moon and outer space. Like birds of the air, man now flies, things hitherto considered impossible. Now ponder this: If the hands of man can do whatsoever it finds to do, what about the hands of God?
Power is about ability to control or do something. That is, the ability of the mighty hand of God or the possibilities of what the mighty hand of God can do for us. Remember we are talking about the hands that fashioned the heavens, the earth and firmaments (Heb.1:10); the hands that broke the power of Pharaoh after 430 years; the One who humbled Nebuchadnezzar; the hands that hold the entire world/ creation; and the Kings and mighty men of the world are in His hands (Proverbs 21:1). That same power can be activated by you today.
PRAYER: Father, show me the power of your mighty hand.
