Combat Ready Devotional # 3

Pharaoh summoned Moses and Aaron in the night and said, “Get up, get out from among my people, both you and the Israelites! Go, serve the Lord as you have requested! Also, take your flocks and your herds, just as you have requested, and leave. But bless me also.” The Lord gave the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians, and they gave them whatever they wanted,and so they plundered Egypt.

Exodus 21:31, 32, 36

This is what Pharaoh, ruler over all of Egypt, told Moses after the tenth and last plague that killed his eldest son. The Egyptians forced the Israelites out of their land. Essentially bribing them with all of their jewels and goods for them to leave immediately. This was God’s plan all along. He had hardened Pharaoh’s heart during the previous nine plagues so He can show off His awesome power. So the Israelites and all the world will know that He is the One True God.

Israel had to suffer through some of the same plagues the Egyptians did. But, they made it through. In your life you may be going through some personal plagues. It may be at work, school, or at home. Be like the Israelites and patiently wait through it. In the end, you will be blessed for what you went through. You will be richer too. You may not be financially richer but you will be spiritually richer. Allow God to work His miracles in your life. Wait for His plan to come together not your own plans.
