God: The Ultimate Fixer-Upper

Every Detail

“… Aaron raised his staff and struck the water of the Nile. Suddenly, the whole river turned to blood! The fish in the river died, and the water became so foul that the Egyptians couldn’t drink it. There was blood everywhere throughout the land of Egypt. But again the magicians of Egypt used their magic, and they, too, turned water into blood…”
~ Exodus 7: 20-22

Aaron an Moses did what they were supposed to and God fulfilled His promise to them. He performed a miracle right in front of Pharaoh and the Egyptians. As all situations go, it seemed as though the Egyptians one-upped them because they could turn the sea into blood as well.

I can picture Moses and Aaron walking away embarrassed. Had God really come through? It seemed like the power God had given them was not effective because everything they did the Egyptians could do too.

God doesn’t waste anything. He had Moses and Aaron perform that miracle knowing what would happen because ultimately, the Egyptians would have to let down their pride and ask for help. Their hearts may have still been hard but the glory would still go to God.

Deep down they would know that God was the only one that can fix their situation. 

I have to admit that sometimes I tend to be like the magicians. I am a fixer. I tend to be a bit of a mother to my friends and family with a get-er-done personality but as I am studying the book of Exodus I see how dangerous that can be. 

The bible says that the Lord delights in EVERY detail of our lives. How sad is it that I forget to let Him get involved… 

As I was studying and asking the Lord what steps I should take in order to make sure that I don’t try to fix things on my own He showed me a three step process from Matthew 7:7 and I will discuss this next week. Let’s just say my mind was pretty blown so stay tuned.
