Standout Verse(s):

THE ACTION

Exodus 4:22, 6:6-7 NLT

Then you will tell him, ‘This is what the Lord says: Israel is my firstborn son.

“Therefore, say to the people of Israel: ‘I am the Lord. I will free you from your oppression and will rescue you from your slavery in Egypt. I will redeem you with a powerful arm and great acts of judgment. I will claim you as my own people, and I will be your God. Then you will know that I am the Lord your God who has freed you from your oppression in Egypt.

 

THE REACTION

Exodus 5:15, 6:9 NLT

So the Israelite foremen went to Pharaoh and pleaded with him. “Please don’t treat your servants like this,” they begged.

So Moses told the people of Israel what the Lord had said, but they refused to listen anymore. They had become too discouraged by the brutality of their slavery.

Observation (s):

  1. The harshness of our circumstances can cause us to forget the label God has placed on us and accept the labels that our enemies have forced on us.

    Then you will tell him, ‘This is what the Lord says: Israel is my firstborn son.

    So the Israelite foremen went to Pharaoh and pleaded with him. “Please don’t treat your servants like this,” they begged.

  2. Under oppression, the Israelites lost faith and hope in the promises of God.

    So Moses told the people of Israel what the Lord had said, but they refused to listen anymore. They had become too discouraged by the brutality of their slavery.

Application:

The severe nature of our circumstances can cause us to believe and/or accept the labels that the enemy has forced upon us and the lies that he has told us. God called Israel his first-born, a position of honour. However, Pharoah and the Egyptians, in their fear, called the Israelites servants and forced them into slavery. The Israelites believed and accepted the label forced upon them. Their minds became so conditioned under the brutality that even when God sent words of encouragement and promises of a change, they were too discouraged to accept the word. Be careful that you do not fall into a similar trap. Keep your eye on God and His promise and not the situation. Constantly remind yourself of who God has proclaimed you and called you to be. You are who God says you are.

DiscoveringByDesign View All →

I am a dynamic young lady who loves the Lord and seek to have a joy that no one can take away. My all-time favourite thing to do is gaining discoveries by design from My Father during our time each day. Reading, learning and trying new things falls behind in a close second place. My dream is to use my God-given talents to positively impact as many people as possible. As a proud Wolmerian, with a zest for life, I adhere to the “Age Quod Agis” motto in that whatsoever I do, I always do it to the best of my ability.
