Verse of the Day
Then a new king, who knew nothing about Joseph, began to rule in Egypt. He said to his people, “There are too many Israelites, and they are stronger than we are. We have to outsmart them, or they’ll increase in number. Then, if war breaks out, they will join our enemies, fight against us, and leave the country.” [GWT] Exodus 1:8-10
The Israelites became a target in Egypt because the king of Egypt saw how successful they were in everything they did and became afraid of them. The children of Israel were multiplying in number, growing in wealth and in all aspects of their lives, and this worried the Egyptian. Sometimes the challenges we face in life is truly of no fault of our own. Indeed the idea that “someone’s got it in for you” springs into mind, and most times you don’t know why the place of work/business you used to love all of a sudden becomes a nightmare of sorts. You may not realise this, but there is something super special about you, and just because you don’t know it, doesn’t mean others are not aware of it. Despite their sufferings, despite the plans of the king of Egypt to break their will, this did not stop the children of Israel from growing in number. I am here to tell you, that regardless of what might be happening currently in your life, in your home, in your place of work/business, you will survive it, and you will come out stronger, better and much more successful than before it all began. The Lord the God you serve is a living God. He has seen your plight, and help is on its way. Don’t give in to that situation just yet.
