[The Glory Unveiled]
Pharaoh said, “I will let you go to offer sacrifices to the LORD your God in the wilderness, but you must not go very far. Now pray for me.”( Exodus 8:28 )
The enemy has an ancient skill of being crafty and cunning. And most of his dealings right down from the garden temptation to the next person he will tempt. His offers at first sight seem good and very convenient. Sometimes it seems like there is nothing to lose in trading with him. But whatever the offer is, do not transact business with the enemy because even his best offer is a trap. We know very well the story of how the Israelites had been in slavery in Egypt and how difficult it was for them to attain independence. After four devastating plagues, the architect of their bondage decided to “give in” and yet still be in control as the devil always does. He will make you feel you are free and in charge but it is only a tethering. And he will keep you within His boundaries. He will permit you to go only as far as he wants and not as you should. The solution is not to accept his offer. Make your demands clear to him and that you will take nothing less than what you want. Moses didn’t accept Pharaoh’s offer to not go very far to pray to their God. What is apportioned to us in Christ is ours legally, but sometimes we must contend with the enemy based on our knowledge of that reality. Stand in the place of pray and say I accept nothing less than what is rightfully mine.
Prayer_Bead: Father Almighty, Redeemer and Saviour, I take full advantage of what is mine in Christ and I refuse to take anything less than that. In Jesus’ name.
