VIDEO: Prayer from Pastor Jim

Hi Church Family,

Prayer and Devotion for today!

As I was reading Exodus 12 I was thinking about God giving Moses instructions to leave Egypt just before the tenth plague. There was no power in the dried blood of a slain lamb. Yet God, in His unfathomable wisdom, designed a plan that required only one thing—obedience!

He never asked them to think it through. He never asked them to dialogue about it. He never asked them to consider the idea and decide if they agreed. He simply told them what to do and when to do it. And then He told them what would happen as a result of their strict obedience to His commands.

For I will go through the land of Egypt on that night, and will strike down all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgement—I am the LORD.  Exodus 12:12

The blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you live and when I see the blood I will pass over you.
Exodus 12:13.

Sound familiar? If you’re like me, you may remember singing that old hymn, “When I see the blood, I will pass, I will pass over you.” God told them, “I’m going to visit Egypt.  I will invade every dwelling where there in no blood on the door. But there will be blood on the doorways of my people, and they will be spared. 

We are in a time when the blood of the lamb is to protect all believers,  as a result of what Jesus did on the cross. The “angel of death” can only pass over, yes, pass over!  

Once this COVID-19 is over, will have a ‘memorial’, a special day, celebrating how the Lord has protected us.

“This day will be a memorial to you, and you shall celebrate it as a feast to the LORD; throughout your generations you are to celebrate it as a permanent ordinance” (Exodus 12:14)

Join me today in praying…

Thank you Lord that you shed your blood on the cross, so that we can be protected. We asked you to forgive us for allowing doubt and fear to take over, and thank you for helping us to have confidence in you.
In the mighty name of Jesus we pray.  Amen
