Daily Manna devotional by Pastor Kumuyi of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry for today is here. Digest the word of the lord and pray believing.
TOPIC OF DAILY MANNA DEVOTIONAL FOR 17TH FEBRUARY IS “UNITY OF PURPOSE.”
TEXT: Exodus 8:16-24
KEY VERSE: Exodus 8:16
And the LORD said unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Stretch out thy rod, and smite the dust of the land, that it may become lice throughout all the land of Egypt.
This particular plague came unannounced and so, the magicians could not prepare their own tricks to counterfeit it. In this case, they had to confess, “This is the finger of God!” The devil has a limit. But our focus in this passage is the sweet collaboration that existed between Moses and Aaron.
Aaron was the elder brother of Moses; but God’s anointing was on Moses. It was he who received the call. His elder brother was brought into fellowship by the special favour of God. Since God commanded Moses to go meet Pharaoh with Aaron who would be his prophet, both of them had been working as one man.
In the chapter under consideration, Aaron played a prominent role in convincing Pharaoh that God had indeed sent them. There was no schism between them. There is one driving force and overriding purpose for their collaboration. They were seeking deliverance for the captive Israelites and wanted to lead them to the Promised Land. Aaron knew he had to amicably work with Moses to achieve this mission.
Believers need to work in harmony to realize their ambition of going to heaven. They must work with the leadership of the church to bring the good news to sinners and prepare them for the kingdom of God through obedience and submission to His revealed will. As believers, we are saved to work for the salvation of others.
Aaron’s submission to the leadership of Moses, his brother, is instructive. We must moderate our ambition and humbly work with those who by divine calling, have been put in leadership. To receive the best from God, we must therefore, imbibe the spirit of humility that enabled Moses and Aaron to jointly elevate God before the Egyptians. We will accomplish more for the Lord if we are united. There is power in unity!
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Unity brings progress.
