(Exodus 7:10-12), And Moses and Aaron went in unto Pharaoh, and they did so as the Lord had commanded: and Aaron cast down his rod before Pharaoh, and before his servants, and it became a serpent. Then Pharaoh also called the wise men and the sorcerers: now the magicians of Egypt, they also did in like manner with their enchantments. For they cast down every man his rod, and they became serpents: but Aaron's rod swallowed up their rods.
I just love the way that the Holy Spirit gives me the wisdom in bringing the scriptures to light in a different way. Not taking anything away from the scriptures but the knowledge as to how to make the scriptures minister to you in a way that will make you smile or to say, Okay, I get it.
Today the Spirit of the Lord wants us to understand that the stories and scriptures in the bible are not just stories, or just for ancient times. The bible is the Word of God and His desire for you is that by His Spirit you gain wisdom, knowledge and understanding that He is the same God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob.
Let's just say that you are Moses and you have been praying for the devil to release you from whatever you have been praying for deliverance from. Maybe you have been praying for a family member or maybe for yourself. Just like Moses, God has given you a weapon to fight the enemy with and He is going to give you precise instructions. Your staff is Prayer. But the moment you began praying, the enemy (magician) shows up and tries to trick you or speak to your mind and heart that he will swallow up your prayers and God will not hear you. If your faith is strong enough, when the enemy throws down his weapon, the weapon (PRAYER) that God has given you will be stronger and bigger that the devil and your staff (PRAYER) will swallow up anything that he (the devil) throws at you.
God spoke to Moses and Aaron, giving them instructions to throw down the staff that He gave them and watch Him demonstrate His power. Moses and Aaron had no idea that the Pharaoh's magicians and were going to perform a trick that looked like the power of God was with them. God is saying to you that the devil performs tricks and He (God) performs miracles. So when the devil tries to trick you into believing that God will not deliver you or bless you, "THROW DOWN YOUR STAFF". LET'S US PRAY!
Heavenly Father, I asked that you forgive me of my sins. Those things that I may have said or done that did not bring glory unto Your Name. Father, I pray that you guide me today and protect me from the enemy. Father, as I read Your Word, I pray for understand and knowledge of Your Word so that I can guard the Word in my heart. Thank you for believing in me and for my deliverance, in Jesus name, Amen.
