John 15: 18 states:
If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.
The word of God never goes void, his words are filled with such truth and omnipotence that it encourages you to live by it.
We are often faced with tribulations and set backs due to relationship issues, enemy rivals, tragedies, or just simply the pressures of life to survive. Some times whilst we are kindled in the midst of all that is happening around us, we may ask ourselves, was this really a plan of God, was I to marry this man or woman, was I to do this job, was I to take up this commitment?
If God had called me to this, then why would people be so much against me for no reason, why the persecutions, why the accusations?
Well readers, let us ask ourselves, are every oppositions wrong for us? Let us take a look at what the bible have to say in the book of Exodus, the story of Zipporah & Moses.
In Exodus as the name suggest, it means a mass departure of people. God had ordained Moses with the annointing to deliver those whom are bound. Through Moses’ life, the experiences he had were always connectively aligned with his purpose. Like I have always said, ‘To deliver people, you must have gone through a series of deliverance to learn the intricacies of deliverance.
In Exodus 2:10 it says, ‘And the child grew and she brought him to Pharoah’s daughter and he became her son and she named him Moses, for she said, ‘Because I drew him out of the water.’
To pull someone from a body of water, it means to deliver them to a place of safety. God’s orchestration was always evident, God knew he had to let an Egyptian deliver Moses, so he may learn the ways of the Egyptians, so one day he may deliver the Hebrews from the Egyptians and the Egyptians shall be no-more.
When God is taking you to a place of Purpose Activation, he leads you into conflicting situations and places you on the ultimate training ground. God also places a burning desire or concern upon your heart. Like it says in Exodus 2:11, ‘One day, when Moses had grown up, he went out to his people and looked on their burdens and he saw an Egyptian beating a Hebrew, one of his people. He looked this way and that and seeing no-one he killed the Egyptian and hid him in the sand.’
God impregnated Moses with a purpose to deliver those whom are bound that only he could carry out. When God have a pupose on your life, you will have nay sayers, you will have haters, you will have persecutors, you will have judgers etc. But whatever purpose God have ordained you for, nothing in this world or above can come against it. Your purpose must be fulfilled as you remain confident and steadfast in the path of righeousness. The devil hates what God have in store for some of us, so the devil will always put in place stumbling blocks, obstacles, tragedies etc as a means of distraction from that which God have called you to do. The devil and his demons’ intention is to form a miscarriage in the purpose God have impregnated you with.
I just want to say to someone who is reading this right now, wherever you are, the will of God will not take you where his grace cannot keep you. It is imperative to walk by faith and not by sight. Activate that which God have called you to regardless of those that hate you, say all manner of evil gainst you, persecute you for righteousness sake, and just straight up want to kill you for the annointing God have placed upon you.
Moses did not allow the opposition to distract him. Moses consulted God in all things by believing in his heart that whatever God have called him to, he is covered. In Exodus 2:13-15 says, ‘When he went out the next day, behold two Hebrews were struggling together, and he said to the man that did the wrong, ‘ Why do you strike your fellow?’ He answered, ‘Who made you a prince and a judge over us? Do you mean to kill me as you killed the Egyptian?
Then Moses was afraid and thought, ‘surely the thing is known.’ When Pharoah heard of it, he sought to kill Moses. But Moses fled from Pharoah and stayed in the land of Midian and he sat down by a well.
In this case God did not punished Moses for the fear he had, instead he placed a desire upon Moses’ heart that was fueled by that fear. This fear had propelled Moses to enter another city.
Though Pharoah grew Moses, the act of hate was still evident, Exodus clearly showed us that, even our very family or close loved ones are not all sent to like us, but some were elected to be haters, to be betrayers, to be informers, to be persecutors, to be a Pharoah.
Just as Moses did, he fled the scene so God could have fight for him on his behalf, to be away from the noise and so he could hear the instructions of God.
If you are going through some Pharoah events, know that the God that delivers, did it before and he is able to do it gain.
