When Moses first informed his in-laws that he is going to Egypt, to challenge Pharaoh and free Israel from slavery, some of them would have thought Moses was insane, crazy, mad. Egypt was a super-power in the world, Pharaoh had a great army feared by other countries, and Moses did not have sword, bullet, gun, or army.
What did Moses base his mission impossible on? Exodus Chapter 3 shows that Moses met God at the burning bush; God promised to be with him on this mission impossible; and Moses went on the strength of his belief that God will keep his promise. God spoke, Moses believed God’s word and acted on it in complete trust.
Years later, after freeing Israel and many face to face meetings with God, Moses wrote Psalm 91 as a testimony to God’s power to protect his children. Psalm 91 encourages, strengthens, and comfort; the Psalm speaks clearly and boldly – God protects his own from seen, unseen, natural, or supernatural dangers.
Psalm 91:14-16 (Good News Translation) states: God says, “I will save those who love me and will protect those who acknowledge me as Lord. When they call to me, I will answer them; when they are in trouble, I will be with them. I will rescue them and honor them. I will reward them with long life; I will save them.”
This is the word of God as recorded by Moses, a trusted source who spoke with God face to face. God says, “I will save those who love me… who acknowledge me as Lord. When they call… I will answer… when in trouble… I will rescue…”
It is either I believe this word, and stand upon them when I pray in times of trouble, or I ignore them and let trouble do with me as it pleases. Christians have no other source of power, our prayers are as strong as the word of God we know.
O Lord, coronavirus is a death plague, your children everywhere are calling on you for protection, answer us, rescue us, in Jesus name, Amen!
