Beloved, on your journey with God, the enemy will pull any tactic on you so you will take your eyes off of the most high. One of those things is the spirit of overwhelming. Remember we don’t war against flesh, but against powers of principalities. Pray against it! The Lord hears our prayers! Continue to seek him, repent and yield to righteousness!
The following scriptures indicate how pharaoh overwhelmed Gods people because they wanted to serve their God. Because of this he purposed to overwhelm them with hard tasks, to the point they would have no time sacrifice to their God. However, we know that God delivered his people with a strong arm and they were able to sacrifice to him. If you are overwhelmed in any area of your life, tell God and ask him to help!
1 And afterward Moses and Aaron went in, and told Pharaoh, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Let my people go, that they may hold a feast unto me in the wilderness.
6 And Pharaoh commanded the same day the taskmasters of the people, and their officers, saying,
7 Ye shall no more give the people straw to make brick, as heretofore: let them go and gather straw for themselves.
8 And the tale of the bricks, which they did make heretofore, ye shall lay upon them; ye shall not diminish aught thereof: for they be idle; therefore they cry, saying, Let us go and sacrifice to our God.
9 Let there more work be laid upon the men, that they may labor therein; and let them not regard vain words.
10 And the taskmasters of the people went out, and their officers, and they spake to the people, saying, Thus saith Pharaoh, I will not give you straw.
11 Go ye, get you straw where ye can find it: yet not aught of your work shall be diminished.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
Remember, no servant is greater than their master, Jesus was persecuted and so will we! It’s just many forms of it!
Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him.
The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.
Romans 8 28
28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
2 Corinthians 4 18
While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
19 I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness.
3 Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? or who shall stand in his holy place?
4 He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.
5 He shall receive the blessing from the Lord, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
6 This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah.
7 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
8 Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle.
9 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
10 Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.
