Remember what happened to ...?

1 Samuel 6:6
Why then do you harden your hearts as the Egyptians and Pharaoh hardened their hearts? When He did mighty things among them, did they not let the people go, that they might depart?

The background of this passage is that the Ark of the Covenant has been captured by the Philistines (under's Saul's first year of being King). Since bring it into thier land they have been plagued bu god. The leaders called for thier priests and mystics to determine what should be done to remove this curse. Thier conclusion - send the Ark back to Israel. And thier reasoning for such action is stated in the verse above.

How interesting that hundreds of years after the fact, the stroy of God's deliverance of His people is still known in the region. The Exodus was not only an event that affected Israel, but the nations of the area. God established a precedent of how He would care for His own. Even these pagen "wise men" were able to discern that the God of Israel was greater than their gods. And they warned thier leaders to learn a lesson from the Egyptians or thier fate would be similar.

Nothing is more impacting than the testimony of God's intervention on behalf of His peole. I want my life to be a witness to the nations of God's power at work in my life, my family, our church, and the Body of Christ as a whole. Even if those around me do not choose to serve my God, let them undenably recognize His favor and power at work in my life as a testimony to His greatness.
