    Yahweh called Samuel again the third time. He arose and went to Eli and said, "Here I am; for you called me." Eli perceived that Yahweh had called the child. Therefore Eli said to Samuel, "Go, lie down. It shall be, if he calls you, that you shall say, 'Speak, Yahweh; for your servant hears.' " So S...

    They went out from there and passed through Galilee. He didn't want anyone to know it, for he was teaching his disciples, and said to them, "The Son of Man is being handed over to the hands of men, and they will kill him; and when he is killed, on the third day he will rise again." But they didn't u...

Taking Care of Pharaoh

  • He said to Abram, "Know for sure that your offspring will live as foreigners in a land that is not theirs, and will serve them. They will afflict them four hundred years. I will also judge that nation, whom they will serve. Afterward they will come out with great wealth" Genesis 15:13'14 WEB.

    God told Abram that his descendants would become slaves for four hundred years in a foreign land. But He would judge the nation that did this, and His descendants would come out with great possessions. This was later fulfilled entirely in the exodus from Egypt. It was a deliberate discipline that ended with a planned outcome. God knew how it would end hundreds of years before it began. He knows the end from the beginning.

    Once I worked at a plant where the manager was much like a slave driver with a hangover. I ran a brass polishing machine all day in the heat while he watched us from an air-conditioned office. I silently prayed and listened to the Bible while buffing brass plumbing parts, trying to make the best of a bad situation. For me, it was a significant change from my last job, where I had been a supervisor. I earned one-third of the pay I used to, but I knew God had placed me here for a time.

    That season humbled me, stripped away unnecessary things, and taught me to rely more on Him. It got me back to the basics and prepared me for His service. It became one of the most anointed seasons of my life. The plans of God have many layers, and not all of them make us comfortable. After a while, the owners removed the manager and promoted me to his position.

    Pharaoh was not as in control of the situation as he thought. God knew what He was doing. When the time was right, He brought His plan to pass. God knew what He was doing in my life, and He currently knows what He is doing in your life. We just have to keep a positive attitude while waiting on Pharaoh to be taken care of.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, please help me see my situation through Your eyes. I know that I am not here by accident and that You have plans for me. I submit to Your will. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

    Note: 'Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God.' (Philippians 4:6-7). If you have a prayer need, we are here for you! We and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network

Your Pharoah message today was encouraging. I've never wanted a big house, fancy cars, etc., I've just wanted to have a home paid for when I retired and not live paycheck to paycheck my whole life this far. I've worked hard only to I lose my home in 2006 after getting sick and unable to pay the mortgage. My car is paid for but old and I cannot afford a new one. At some point I pray God steps in and answers my lifelong prayer. I'm 63 and feel like I'm running out of time. It's hard to stay encouraged so your message helped. My hope is in you Lord. Thank you.
