Keep On Going

March 15 | Bible in a Year: Deuteronomy 26-27; Mark 14:27-53

Keep On Going

By faith [Moses] left Egypt, not fearing the king’s anger.
Hebrews 11:27
READ EXODUS 10:21–29

Working in the corporate world allowed me to interact with many talented and levelheaded people. However, one project led by an out-of-town supervisor was an exception. Regardless of our team’s progress, this manager harshly criticized our work and demanded more effort during each weekly status phone call. These run-ins left me discouraged and fearful. At times, I wanted to quit.

It’s possible that Moses felt like quitting when he encountered Pharaoh during the plague of darkness. God had hurled eight other epic disasters at Egypt, and Pharaoh finally exploded, “[Moses,] get out of my sight! Make sure you do not appear before me again! The day you see my face you will die” (Exodus 10:28).

Despite this threat, Moses eventually was used by God to free the Israelites from Pharaoh’s control. “[By faith] Moses left the land of Egypt, not fearing the king’s anger. He kept right on going because he kept his eyes on the one who is invisible” (Hebrews 11:27 NLT). Moses overcame Pharaoh by believing that God would keep His promise of deliverance (Exodus 3:17).

Today, we can rely on the promise that God is with us in every situation, supporting us through His Holy Spirit. He helps us resist the pressure of intimidation and wrong responses to it by granting us supernatural power, love, and self-control (2 Timothy 1:7). The Spirit provides the courage we need to keep going and to follow God’s leading in our lives.

INSIGHT
The plagues that befell Egypt occurred within a significant context. Each of them was a direct attack upon the false gods of Egypt. For example, the first plague in which the Nile River was turned to blood was directed at one of Egypt’s most significant deities—the Nile itself! (Exodus 7:14-24). Seen as the source of life-giving water for their crops, turning the Nile to blood was a powerful image. Similarly, the ninth plague—darkness—showed the superiority of the God of the Hebrews over Ra, the sun god, another major deity in Egypt’s system of multiple gods (10:21-23). In each case, the power of the one true God was demonstrated over the false gods of the Egyptians.
