MAN OF THE DAY: MOSES.
PRAYER FOCUS: THE SPIRIT OF ADVOCACY
Moses has a lot to teach us about how God can use us even when we don’t think we’re qualified. Like Esther, Moses has a unique position: He was one of the Hebrews, (who were slaves to the Egyptians) but he’d been raised in Pharaoh’s palace. He’s living in the desert when God calls him to go to Pharaoh and tell him to let the Hebrews go.
Moses offers a slew of excuses why he shouldn’t go (Exodus 3 and 4), which God patiently answers until Moses finally exclaims, “ Pardon your servant, Lord. Please send someone else” (Exodus 4:13). His plea is simultaneously pitiful and relatable — as much as we want to see people set free, we often hope God sends someone else.
Moses finally agrees to do what God asks, but then Pharaoh refuses to let the Hebrews go free, over and over again. It takes ten plagues — plagues that destroy the health and wealth of Egypt — before Pharaoh grants Moses’ request.
It wasn’t up to Moses to change Pharaoh’s heart. God took care of that. After reconciling himself to the assignment (sometimes it takes us awhile!), Moses was faithful in answering God’s call to speak up for the Hebrews, no matter how long it took. Moses’ strategy was to do as God asked and leave the final result to God.
DAILY PRAYER OF BLESSING.
My son……………………….. I give to you the blessing of my prayers.
I give to you the blessing of my praise.
I give to you the blessing of my passage.
I give to you the blessing of my purity.
I give to you the blessing of my name.
My son, Because YOU are born of God, YOU shall overcome the world and every battle in it, in Jesus name.
By the blood of Jesus, I blot out every evil family record that may be speaking against you.
Like Joseph, may you receive the anointing to terminate generational battles.
Like Jephtha, may you receive the grace to rewrite our family history positively.
Like David, may you be used to kill the Goliath that we your parents and our seniors could not kill.
Father, empower my son to defeat the forces that defeated our parents and grandparents.
