I am the Lord!

Wherefore say unto the children of Israel, I am the Lord, and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will rid you out of their bondage, and I will redeem you with a stretched out arm, and with great judgments: Exodus 6:6 KJV

When God resorts to first person singular, it means the handshake has passed the elbow. That’s an African proverb that declares that someone has crossed the line, someone has challenged His Majesty. Before this verse, God points out the two things He could not keep quiet about. The first is the covenant, the second is the people. Anytime someone plays with the covenant, the person is doing so at the risk of his life. We don’t discuss a lot about covenants these days. They form the superstructure of the entire story of redemption. Covenants are formal relationships for God to interfere in the earth realm and help us. Its climax is in the arrival of Jesus Christ. Today, God calls that to remembrance in three major sentences. Read that again. They all begin with ” I will..”. Now it is Gods word against the situation. We know where the victory lies. There’s still a covenant word for your situation today. Locate the right word, and make God arise on your behalf. Every situation is subject to the word of the covenant. Don’t stay on worry. Drag every situation to the arena of the covenant and watch God do the miraculous. The cry of the Children brought God into the scene. May that covenant speak for you today.
