For by now I could have stretched out my hand and struck you and your people with a plague that would have wiped you off the earth. BUT I HAVE RAISED YOU UP FOR THIS VERY PURPOSE, THAT I MIGHT SHOW YOU MY POWER AND THAT MY NAME MIGHT BE PROCLAIMED IN ALL THE EARTH (Exodus 9:15-16 NIV).

Beloved, our feature text recounts what the Lord said to Pharaoh who thought he had the upper hand when he oppressed the children of God. I read it and thought to myself; so, who is that enemy that thinks they are in control of your life and situation?

Unfortunately, we tend to give too much attention to the enemy but the truth is that he has already been defeated… [God] disarmed the principalities and powers that were ranged against us and made a bold display and public example of them, in triumphing over them in Him and in it [the cross] (Colossians 2:15 AMP).

We need a reality check! Who is in control here? Well, that would depend on whether you are giving the enemy access into your life. If so, you definitely need a reality check! But here’s what the Lord is saying… “Behold, I have created the blacksmith who blows the coals in the fire, who brings forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the spoiler to destroy. No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgment You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is from Me,” says the Lord (Isaiah 54:16-17 NKJV). The New Living Translation says… their vindication will come from Me. I, THE LORD, HAVE SPOKEN!

I, THE LORD, HAVE SPOKEN!…

Beloved, today, the Lord is saying… “FOCUS ON ME AND WHAT I HAVE ASKED YOU TO DO. I WILL TAKE CARE OF YOUR ENEMIES”. You need to grab hold of this word because you need to focus all your energy on positive things.

While the Lord pursues our enemies out of town, here’s what we ought to be doing… pursue righteousness (right standing with God and true goodness), godliness (which is the loving fear of God and being Christlike), faith, love, steadfastness (patience), and gentleness of heart (1 Timothy 6:11 AMP).

Beloved, DO EVERYTHING THE LORD HAS ASKED YOU TO DO AND WATCH HIM TAKE CARE OF YOUR ENEMIES. HE IS THE ONE IN CONTROL NOT THE ENEMY.

God bless you in Jesus Christ name
