Then Moses turned again to the Lord and said, O Lord, why have You dealt evil to this people? Why did You ever send me? For since I came to Pharaoh to speak in Your name, he has done evil to this people, NEITHER HAVE YOU DELIVERED YOUR PEOPLE AT ALL (Exodus 5:22-23 AMPC).

Beloved, as we were embarking on one of the assignments from the Lord this year, one of the things the Holy Spirit led us to pray against was the backlash of the enemy which is a strong negative reaction whenever the Lord wants to bring about a massive deliverance. As you read through the Bible, you find out that the devil only has one mission; to steal, kill and destroy… nothing more and right from the very beginning, he appeared in the garden of Eden to steal, kill and destroy the wonderful work-free, burden-free future God gave to Adam and Eve… and he continued with the Israelites and he still continues till date.

We read that God sent Moses to Pharaoh… tell him to free My people from bondage… Let My people go so that they are free to worship Me… but Pharaoh instructed the slave drivers to increase their burden… let HEAVIER WORK be laid upon the men that they may labor at it and pay no attention to LYING WORDS (Exodus 5:9 AMPC).

The New Living translation says…. Load them down with more work. Make them sweat! That will teach them to LISTEN TO LIES!”… And the Message translation says – CRACK DOWN ON THEM. That’ll cure them of their whining, their god-fantasies.”

Beloved, that’s the plan of the enemy… to load you with heavier work… to make you sweat… crack down on you so that the promise you received from God would seem like LYING WORDS… god-fantasies… you get so burdened from everything he puts on you that like Moses in our feature text, you start to wonder… but God… are you sure you meant what you said?

This is the same Moses that God appeared to by the burning bush and showed many wonderful signs…The Lord even told him what to expect. He said… I would harden Pharaoh’s heart so that he won’t let them go (Exodus 4:21) but when it came down to it, Moses got discouraged.

It’s the same thing today. The stories in the Bible have been written for us so that we know exactly what to expect… but when it comes down to it, many start to lose their believe in the promises of God.

However, the Bible says… For what if some did not believe? Will their unbelief make the faithfulness of God without effect? Certainly not! Indeed, LET GOD BE TRUE BUT EVERY MAN A LIAR (Romans 3:3-4 NKJV).

Beloved, before we could finish saying happy new year, January is over and many are saying “but God you said”. However, when God said, it isn’t the time to just sit down there waiting. Heavy warfare should be taking place because hell is mad but know that like He did with the Israelites, God would prove Himself true in our situation and everyman a liar.

God bless you in Jesus Christ name
