Even the God of 9-11, Part 3

          Exodus 9:11says, “And the magicians could not stand before Moses because of the boils, for the boils were on the magicians and on all the Egyptians” (NKJ). When God is ready to teach our enemies a lesson, He can do it.

         The magicians inEgyptthought they were hot stuff when Moses first showed up to deliver God’s message to Pharaoh about releasing the Israelite slaves. They actually reproduced and thus helped intensify the first plagues. I can picture them in my mind’s eye watching Moses scoop water from theRed Seaand pour it out as blood. They probably clucked their tongues and muttered, “That’s Magic 101,” as they conjured up the what appeared to be the same thing. But by the time we get to the sixth plague—the boils—not only were they unable to reproduce it, but the boils were on them as well.

         Know today that there are no other gods or powers that can stand before God Almighty. Throughout the Bible, God reiterates this truth:

  •  Exodus 14:13  And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever. (KJV)
  • Job 37:14  Hearken unto this, O Job: stand still, and consider the wondrous works of God. (KJV)
  • Psalm 46:10  Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. (KJV)
  • Romans8:31  What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? (KJV)

          Rejoice that God fight your battles.
