“I have surely seen the affliction of my people who are in Egypt. I have heard their cry because of their taskmasters, for I know their sorrows. I have come down to rescue them from the hand of the Egyptians and to bring them up from that land to a land that is both good and spacious…”
You probably recognize the above verses from the well-known burning bush scene in Exodus 3. God’s words to Moses revealed unchanging, fundamental truths about His character: He is the God who sees, the God who hears, the God who knows, and the God who rescues. If we have a relationship with Jesus, then we can apply these truths to our personal lives. Every day you and I can rehearse these truths:
My God sees me
My God hears me
My God knows me
My God rescues me
If we keep our feet planted firmly on these truths, then you and I can face any situation or circumstance that comes our way with absolute confidence. We can live as Spirit-filled conquerors, overcomers, and mighty warriors. We can fight any battle knowing we’ve been rescued by Almighty God and that no weapon formed against us will prosper.
You and I must choose daily to remember these foundational truths. Commit to speaking them aloud – something powerful happens when our ears hear our own voice speaking truth from God’s word. We will feel our confidence and hope in God increase with each spoken word. Go ahead, give it a try. You’ll be ready to pick up your sword and shield and take your stand against the schemes of the enemy. Nothing can stop a woman standing on the Truth!
