“You dear children are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world” – (1 John 4:4).

There are two Moses: one inexperienced and eager to serve God of which he got a beating. The second Moses is a humbled one and who had tasted of God’s power. Once chased out of Egypt this renewed Moses, stepped up and faced Ramses, the pharaoh, and his old nemesis. He calmly asked, “Let my people go” (Exodus 5:1). Prior he had run off when it became known he had killed an Egyptian to save the life of a Jew (Exodus 2: 11-25). He had not lingered to see if his God could fight back for him. Moses was terrified of the power of the enemy.

Far off in exile he must have reflected on the power of the God he believed in against that of his enemies. Who was more powerful? It is seems God used to speak to him in his quiet spirit as he herded sheep. Finally God would reveal himself to him one day in a bush fire and tell him to go back and free the Jews under captivity (Exodus 3).

It was a different Moses then who once faced Ramses and left in a hurry. He wasn’t afraid as before. The times of wilderness had built his faith. He knew his God was greater than all other gods of Pharaohs and wasn’t as afraid anymore!

Just as with Moses you may ask, how about you! After all you have seen of God’s hand are you the same person! Moses had waited on God and changed. This should serve as an inspiration to us. Moses had been through a difficult experience and was touched by God to go out and overcome all his enemies. In the end no matter the size or nature of the enemy our God is far greater than all the forces out there, and however long it takes, victory is on our side!

Prayer for today: Lord Father God of Abraham, maker of heaven and earth, where I am faced with any obstacle or whatever force, yet I know your power is greater than all, for you have overcome all the evil forces out there, and this I pray in Jesus’s name.

    “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God”- (Philippians 4:6).

    Perhaps you have heard of a certain old magical trade known as mind reading. According to this trade which has been around for millenniums and has its share of tricksters, mind readers are able to discern thought patterns of individuals before they even utter a word. There are places in the world where this, as expected, is a lucrative occupation, with practitioners, often crafty magicians, demanding hefty fees, just to tell thoughts of others.

    As Christians, of course, we have an all knowing God, who has said, “Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him”  ( Mathew 6:8). Further, our Lord has pointed out, “And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words” ( Mathew 6:7). As Christians when we come to God, we do so with full confidence, that He already knows our needs and will meet them according to his glorious riches in heaven.

    Of particular interest for us here is that while God perfectly knows our needs before we even dare utter a single word, still it is incumbent upon us to make our requests known to Him. A parent may have long noticed a child has a need for a new pair of shoes; but it is another dimension, when the child does come out and share aloud that his pair is worn out, hurting and is quite in need of a new one. The parent takes notice, especially when the matter is presented with such conviction and urgency. This is why Hannah cried out to God for a child ( 1 Samuel 1:9-18).

    In our relationship with God, as the Apostle Paul advises us, it is not just enough to assume and let matters be, that after all God knows all our needs, but we too bear a responsibility to make our requests known to Him. Once we are done with that, we let God do  His part, allowing “the peace of God, which transcends all understanding” ( Philippians 4:7) to flood us.
    So, today, do not hold back your needs from the Almighty God. He has paved the way to walk to Him through His son Jesus Christ, to present your case, bear out your heart’s desire, and let Him do His part!

    Prayer today: Lord Father God of Abraham, maker of heaven and earth, today I rise to make my requests known to you, knowing you have heard me even before I utter a single word, assured that you will meet each and every one of my needs, according to your glorious riches in heaven!
