TODAY'S WORD FOR TODAY
The Finger of God (2)
‘The magicians said to Pharaoh, ‘This is the finger of God.’’Exodus 8:19
The finger of God in calamity. When God sent plagues that Pharaoh’s wizards couldn’t duplicate, they cried out in fear, ‘This is the finger of God.’ Finally Pharaoh got the message: ‘Maybe God’s trying to tell me something.’ The calamity that befell Egypt was a direct result of Pharaoh defying God. Ten times Moses stood before him with God’s Word, saying, ‘Let my people go.’ Notice, God was only asking for what was rightfully His. The question is: What is He asking of you? Only when you say yes to God, will things begin to go right for you! When you see His purpose in the reversals and setbacks you’re going through, you can actually turn them into stepping stones to blessing. The Psalmist wrote, ‘Thy way, O God, is in the sanctuary’ (Psalms 77:13 NKJV). Then he added, ‘Thy way is in the sea, and Thy path in the great waters…’ (Psalms 77:19 KJV). The sanctuary or the storm! God will bring you the easy way or the hard way. If you refuse to listen to His voice in the sanctuary, He will speak to you in life’s storms. Pharaoh rebelled against the providential dealings of God and it cost him his kingdom and his life. Don’t miss the lesson here. God wants what belongs to Him, what He bought and paid for at Calvary. He wants His rightful place in your life, which is first place. And you have an option: you can rebel against Him or respond to His love. If you feel God tugging at your heart today, it’s because He wants to save you, use you and bless you. If you’re wise you’ll say yes to Him.
