Verse of the Day
But among the Israelites it will be so peaceful that not even a dog will bark. Then you will know that the LORD makes a distinction between the Egyptians and the Israelites. [NLT] Exodus 11:7
Following God’s appearance to Moses in the form of the burning bush and his return to Egypt to deliver the message of God to Pharaoh king of Egypt to release the children of Israel living among them from their enslavement, many plagues were inflicted upon Egypt with the rod in his hands, because of pharaoh’s refusal to let the Israelites leave Egypt. And even though the land and the people of Egypt were besieged by one form of plague after another, none of the plagues affected the community of the Israelites living among them. Since God had marked them for distinction, God made sure that there was a clear separation between the Israelites and the Egyptians. Are there some unsettling news hovering around your work place, your neighbourhood, your home or your area of business? Remember, since God has distinguished/exempted/separated you, you have no need to fear, because none of it will get to you. Our Father in heaven, creator of the heavens and the earth has place a clear distinction on you, so that all eyes that see you, will see the difference having Jesus in your life makes in your life in times of distress. Have no fear, Jesus is with you, and He’s made sure that none of the plagues hovering around will come near your resting place.
