Today’s devotion is based on Exodus 522-6:1. “Then Moses turned to the LORD again and said ‘Lord, why do you mistreat your people? Why did you send me here? Ever since I went to the king to speak for you, he has treated them cruelly. And you have done nothing to help them!’ Then the LORD said to Moses, ‘Now you are going to see what I will do to the king. I will force him to let my people go. In fact, I will force him to drive them out of his land.’”
Moses was not having much success with Pharoh. He believed God was the cause. Moses must have forgotten that God made it clear that following him wouldn’t be easy. He had forgotten that God promised him success. And yet at the first setback, Moses turned on God. He accused him of making things worse.
How often, however, do we act like Moses? We know as he did that the problems of life aren’t easy. We know as he did that the almighty God will triumph. Yet we too fail to rely on God’s promises. The battle will be tough. If we let Satan con us. But if we trust God and the power of his word, ‘One little word can fell him.’ That is God’s promise.
Please pray with me the prayer for today: Heavenly Father, creator, and sustainer of all things seen and unseen I know you have won. Help me to stay firm in the faith, so that with your help, I can withstand satan's attacks. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
