DCLM Daily Manna 20 February 2022 Devotional By Pastor W. F. Kumuyi — The Only True God

TOPIC: The Only True God

TEXT: Exodus 9:13-26 (KJV)

13 And the Lord said unto Moses, Rise up early in the morning, and stand before Pharaoh, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord God of the Hebrews, Let my people go, that they may serve me.

14 For I will at this time send all my plagues upon thine heart, and upon thy servants, and upon thy people; that thou mayest know that there is none like me in all the earth.

15 For now I will stretch out my hand, that I may smite thee and thy people with pestilence; and thou shalt be cut off from the earth.

16 And in very deed for this cause have I raised thee up, for to shew in thee my power; and that my name may be declared throughout all the earth.

17 As yet exaltest thou thyself against my people, that thou wilt not let them go?

18 Behold, to morrow about this time I will cause it to rain a very grievous hail, such as hath not been in Egypt since the foundation thereof even until now.

19 Send therefore now, and gather thy cattle, and all that thou hast in the field; for upon every man and beast which shall be found in the field, and shall not be brought home, the hail shall come down upon them, and they shall die.

20 He that feared the word of the Lord among the servants of Pharaoh made his servants and his cattle flee into the houses:

21 And he that regarded not the word of the Lord left his servants and his cattle in the field.

22 And the Lord said unto Moses, Stretch forth thine hand toward heaven, that there may be hail in all the land of Egypt, upon man, and upon beast, and upon every herb of the field, throughout the land of Egypt.

23 And Moses stretched forth his rod toward heaven: and the Lord sent thunder and hail, and the fire ran along upon the ground; and the Lord rained hail upon the land of Egypt.

24 So there was hail, and fire mingled with the hail, very grievous, such as there was none like it in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation.

25 And the hail smote throughout all the land of Egypt all that was in the field, both man and beast; and the hail smote every herb of the field, and brake every tree of the field.

26 Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel were, was there no hail.

KEY VERSE: “And in very deed for this cause have I raised thee up, for to shew in thee my power; and that my name may be declared throughout all the earth.” – (Exodus 9:16)


Men of great authority are often deluded to think that they can challenge God. When Moses and Aaron told Pharaoh that God wanted him to let Israel leave Egypt, he replied, “Who is the LORD, that I should obey his voice… I know not the LORD, neither will I let Israel go” (Exodus 5:2). Similarly, Sennacherib and Nebuchadnezzar also questioned the personality and authority of God.

Pharaoh continued his resistance to God’s will to let Israel go. The plague of hail was to come because of this and the Egyptians were warned to gather their cattle and servants out of the field before its arrival. Those that feared the Lord obeyed but others left their cattle and servants in the field and suffered great losses. Satan’s pride and ambition to be like the most High is often manifested by his children.

“Power”, they say, “corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely”. Men in power are deceived to believe they have now become bigger than what they actually are and must do things – evil things, to make “a statement”. The result is often mass poverty, disenchantment, deprivation and oppression.

God comes with a heavy hand to deliver the message to them that He alone is God. Pharaoh died in the Red Sea after the death of all the first-born male children of Egypt. Sennacherib lost 185,000 soldiers in one night and was later killed by his children. Nebuchadnezzar was made to eat grass like an animal for seven years until he realised that God is “the [true] King…” (Daniel 4:37).

It is foolish for man to strive with God.

Judges 8-10
