lamp-light1
MEMORISE : And I will come down and talk with thee there: and I will take of
the spirit which is upon thee, and will put it upon them; and they shall bear the
burden of the people with thee, that thou bear it not thyself alone. NUMBERS
11 : 17.

READ : EXODUS 2 : 13 – 15 AND EXODUS 3 : 7 – 8.
13 And when he went out the second day, behold, two men of the Hebrews
strove together: and he said to him that did the wrong, Wherefore smitest
thou thy fellow?
14 And he said, Who made thee a prince and a judge over us? Intendest thou to
kill me, as thou killedst the Egyptian? And Moses feared, and said, surely this
thing is known.
15 Now when Pharaoh heard this thing, he sought to slay Moses. But Moses fled
from the face of Pharaoh, and dwelt in the land of Midian: and he sat down by a
well.

EXODUS 3 : 7 – 8
7 And the LORD said, I have surely seen the affliction of my people which are in
Egypt, and have heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters; for I know
their sorrows;
8 And I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to
bring them up out of that land unto a good land and a large, unto a land flowing
with milk and honey; unto the place of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and
the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR : 1 SAMUEL 17 : 55 – 19 : 24 AND MARK 7 : 14 – 37.

When God is involved in your matter, you can go to bed and sleep with your two
eyes closed; the simple reason being that He can handle any situation better
than you.
When Moses attempted to deliver the Israelites by his own might, he ended up
fleeing and leaving a mess behind, but when the Almighty God Himself got
involved in the project of delivering His people, Egypt was never the same
again. I prophesy to someone using this devotional, that the Almighty God will
get involved in your situation today in Jesus’ Name. At the end God’s
intervention in Egypt, the Bible records this in Exodus 12 : 30 – 31 :
“And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he, and all his servants, and all the
Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt; for there was not a house
where there was not one dead. And he called for Moses and Aaron by night, and
said, rise up, and get you forth from among my people, both ye and the children
of Israel; and go, serve the LORD, as ye have said.”

Now, let us compare the difference between the result of Moses’ attempt at
deliverance and the result achieved after God got directly involved. The Bible
says Moses went one day to see the affliction of his brethren. Moved with
compassion, he decided to take up the role of self-made hero. Before he knew
it, he became a fugitive, because after he had killed a man, Pharaoh sought to
take his own life also. So, Moses ran for his dear life. But when God got
involved, it was a different ball-game. After thousands of Egyptians were
slain in one night, Pharaoh was the one begging Moses to leave his land in
peace! Divine involvement made the difference. If you are one of those who
believe in human connections in high places, I encourage you to invite God into
that situation that is almost causing embarrassment to you and your family.
Once God gets involved, the results will make you think you are day-dreaming.
Psalm 126 : 1 says :
“When the Lord turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that
dream.”
To enjoy divine involvement in your situation, you must be numbered among the
people of the Lord of Hosts. You don’t have to fight the battle of life alone if
you are one of His. Call on Him today. He will get involved, and you will glorify
Him.

ACTION POINT :
Cry to God and report all those afflicting you to Him. He will get involved if you
belong to Him.
