The more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied and grew.
Exodus 1:12, NKJV
Message: After the death of Joseph, the people of Israel living in Egypt were blessed and increased greatly in numbers to the point that many years later, Pharaoh feared them and put them under slave masters to oppress them with forced labor. But today’s Scripture says the more Pharaoh afflicted them, the more the Israelites multiplied. Pharaoh thought he was stopping them, but in fact, he was increasing them.
Sometimes when God wants to promote you, He doesn’t send you a good break; He sends you an enemy. He’ll cause a supervisor, perhaps, to turn up the heat and put you in an unfair situation. Don’t get discouraged—the more opposition, the more you’re going to increase. We may not like it, but we grow under pressure, our character is developed, and we discover talent that we didn’t know we had. Get ready for new levels. Get ready for promotion. That pressure is not going to stop you; it’s going to increase you.
A Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You that You want me to tap into the treasures You’ve put inside me, and You use pressure to do that. Thank You that You stretch my faith and cause me to overcome and persevere. I believe that I will rise up to new levels. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
