Dearly Beloved, I greet and bless you in the name of our Creator, Maker, and ever unforgettable Lord Jesus Christ. The blessed word that the Lord has given for you today is from the book of Exodus 14:13, “And Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid, Stand still and see the salvation of the Lord. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more, forever.”
From the above context we come to know that all your enemies will vanish away and you shall be free from their hands. The Israelites were being chased by the Egyptian army. But all of them were drowned in the sea. Thus the people of God were well protected from their enemies and they crossed the Red Sea without any fear.
God is going to show favour to you as He showed favour to Joseph in Potiphar’s house. He was sold by his brothers to the merchants and there in Egypt he worked in Potiphars house. Though he did not do any wrong, he was thrown into the jail because Joseph refused to incline to the desires of Potiphars wife. Joseph feared God. And so he ran away from committing sin. God was with Joseph so he found favour in the eyes of the jailor who appointed him as the head man over all the other prisoners. Not only that, two years later was he called by Pharaoh himself to interpret the meaning of his dream. Even while he was in the prison he was able to interpret the dream of the butler and baker. And each ones dream came true as he had interpreted. Now when he interpreted the dream of Pharaoh he was exalted by him and made the Governor of Egypt. Joseph would never have thought that he was going to be the Governor. He was given all power and authority. God lifted him up from that of a slave to the post of a Governor. God favoured him in the eyes of Pharaoh.
Similarly we see Jacob who went to do business with his uncle, and he found the favour of God. In the beginning Jacob’s uncle Laban cheated him by giving his eldest daughter Leah. So Jacob worked another seven years and married Rachel. Day by day Jacob worked hard, and later his uncle financed him in his business and made him his working partner. He made a contract with Jacob saying all striped sheep would belong to Jacob, and all plain ones will be Labans’. God multiplied those sheep which his uncle had allotted for him. In everything that Jacob did God showed favour to him and therefore he became rich and wealthy. He found favour in the eyes of his own uncle who had cheated him and even his uncle’s sons who considered Jacob as an enemy, became friendly and showed favour to him. Therefore having crossed over river Jordan victoriously he praises the Lord and says, “Lord in what way am I worthy to obtain mercy and grace and the truth of God that I should be blessed with two companies who left my father’s house with only a staff and empty hand. He praises the Lord for making his name great among the Israelites. God will show you the same favour from your boss under whom you work. God will make your name great, with fame and praise in your company such that you will even become a working partner with your Boss in his business. If God is with you then you will shine. God Bless You.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, We thank You for this blessed day. Lord thank you for driving all our enemies and protecting us from their cruel hands. We thank You Father for the favour, You showed to Joseph and Jacob. We also wish to inherit that blessing which you have bestowed upon them. Help us to run away from sin and have godly fear in us. Teach us to have Christ in us that we may be victorious in our day to day life.
