The Light of Christ Journey

Encouraging people on their journey with Christ

Exodus 14:4 (RSVCE) - | Exodus, Verse of the day, Bible

In the days of Moses, the people of Egypt were worshiping many false gods and God used the plagues to show who He was. Satan, our enemy, is a deceiver and blinds people to who God really is as the Apostle Paul writes in 2 Cor. 4:4.  Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God. [1]

The Lord sent the plagues to shake people out of their blindness. When Pharaoh and his army chased after the people, again the Lord demonstrated His power by allowing His people to cross the Red Sea on dry ground. Later, when the Egyptians attacked the Hebrews and followed them into the Red Sea, it closed and destroyed them.

Exodus 14:And once again I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, and he will chase after you. I have planned this in order to display my glory through Pharaoh and his whole army. After this the Egyptians will know that I am the Lord!” So the Israelites camped there as they were told. [2]

God went to great lengths to open the Egyptian hearts. He demonstrated that He was God and He alone should be worshiped.

I remember a mission trip to Honduras where we prayed for healing for a young man after a motorcycle accident. The Lord Jesus healed this man as he was being prayed for. He began to move his arm up and down and push it up into the air. Previously his arm was in a sling and was useless. It was a very moving experience to see God at work. This young man and many others who were there saw God at work. God’s demonstration of who He is caused them to place their faith in Jesus as their Savior. God had showed them that He was the true God.

How has the Lord revealed Himself to you? Was it through His Holy Word, the work of the Holy Spirit, during a worship experience, a time of prayer, through nature, or some other way that God chose? Take time to thank the Lord for this revelation. He reveals Himself so that we can place our faith in Jesus as Lord and Savior.
