DCLM Daily Manna - God Defends His Own


Pastor W. F. Kumuyi

DCLM Daily Manna 17 February 2022 Devotional By Pastor W. F. Kumuyi — God Defends His Own


TOPIC: God Defends His Own

TEXT: Exodus: 18:16-24

KEY VERSE: “And I will sever in that day the land of Goshen, in which my people dwell, that no swarms of flies shall be there; to the end thou mayest know that I am the LORD in the midst of the earth.” – (Exodus 8:22)


The Bible is replete with ordinary folks who got elevated to positions of authority and who ironically arrogated such pre-eminence to themselves. One of such is Pharaoh of Egypt in the days of Moses. He became so deluded that he thought he was superior to the Almighty. It is always amusing to witness the way God demystifies arrogant and stubborn men, and proves to all that He is the Lord without an equal.

The passage today describes the release of the third and fourth plagues over the land of Egypt. The third plague turned dust into lice, which attacked both man and beast. Pharaoh’s magicians attempted to enchant something similar but they could not. This confirmed to Pharaoh that it was the handiwork of God. Yet Pharaoh hardened his heart, which prompted the fourth plague – the release of grievous swarm of flies all over Egypt. But in Goshen where the Israelites dwelt, God made a demarcation that not one single fly was found there. This was to prove to Pharaoh and Egypt that God defends His own.

We should not doubt the ability of the Almighty to save to the uttermost and to frustrate those who rise against us. God truly has the capacity to give light in a particular place and darkness in another. He can do anything to protect and defend His chosen ones.

God still defends His people today. Even when it seems the devil and his cohorts are gaining the upper hand and the children of God are losing out, our heavenly Father will move swiftly to crush the enemy and reverse the trend.

If God be for us, who can be against us?

Joshua 22-24
