God’s Power 23
It does not, therefore, depend on human desire or effort, but on God’s mercy. For Scripture says to Pharaoh: “I raised you up for this very purpose, that I might display my power in you and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth.” Therefore God has mercy on whom he wants to have mercy, and he hardens whom he wants to harden. Romans 9:16-18
God as the creator of all things can actually permit you to have a fierce enemy that He will eventually defeat, then, manifest His power and justice on your behalf.
God raised Pharaoh up, so that He would display His power. God can choose to use anyone and anything to display His power.
Regardless of the pharaoh and Goliath in your life, God can display His power and magnify Himself. Battles must be fought, and winners must be declared.
Focus on how you can pray, and wait upon God for him to defeat your own pharaoh and enemy. Do not focus on the enemy or on what the enemy is doing.
God will definitely magnify Himself by defeating your enemies. They exist to be disgraced and defeated just as Pharaoh existed to be disgraced and defeated. Death also exists to be defeated at the end of time.
May grace, mercy and peace be ours, in full measure. May great grace, be upon us, in Jesus name.
