Faith is always a product of our consciousness of his personality. This consciousness is a result of the knowledge of God’s presence. That knowledge is what makes us worship God in a special way. God asked Moses to speak to Pahroah who was the world power at that time. When God told Moses “I am”, he was meaning to say He is the only God and there is no controversy about it! He was saying He doesn’t change nor can situations change Him.


God knew that Pharaoh, will not let the Israelites go just like that and He informed Moses (Exodus 3:19). Sometimes, we need to be informed about the personality of our adversary. That you pray isn’t just the reason the devil will flee! That you commanded the demons doesn’t mean they will automatically respond! Many times, you must put up a resistance with persistency. However, only people who knows that God is always there will push forward!


We are the restraining power of God! It is the church that is holding the devil from annihilating humans. The prayers of the saints have always restrained the devil. Just like in Egypt, when the Angel of death visited Egypt, he had to pass through the houses marked with blood! This shows he is not from God! He is the devil and he needed a sign to pass through God’s people! The devil wasn’t so much revealed in the old testament and that’s why he was called an Angel of death. The Bible says the devil comes to steal, kill and destroy. Assuming the Israelites had no sign that shows they have a covenant with God, they too would have been destroyed! That sign was a shadow of what was to come. 


Have you wondered why in certain families, every first born or every particular born dies, or don’t succeed! Have you noticed a kind of omen that have been rooted in certain families and have suddenly become traditions? Have you noticed certain families seeking for a family liberation because of certain things that has been happening? Well, that’s exactly what happened in Egypt! Truth is, the reason those things happen and affect certain people is because they have not entered the new covenant that was sealed with the blood of Jesus! There is no consciousness of God’s presence. They may be church goers, they may be serious in religious activities but because they have not really entered that new covenant or become conscious of their salvation in Christ, the devil will come and never see a sign that marks them apart for God! Remember, the Israelites were already God’s choosen  people but even at that the devil needed to see a sign of who they are. You see that? You must not forget who you are because the devil deals with believers who are ignorant of who are.


God never sent the devil to Egypt! God simply knew he was coming and God protected the people He had covenant with by making them not to be ignorant with the tactics of the devil (2 Corinthians 2:11). The Bible asked us never to be ignorant of the tactics of the enemy. Certain people perish because of what they don’t know (Hosea 4:6)! 


We have been sealed by the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 1:13). When ever the devil comes, he sees that sign and he departs! However, we must be conscious of that seal! God showcased His grace right from Genesis. Cain was supposed to die, but God sealed him with a seal that no one can kill him. Once death comes, it sees that sign of protection and it departs! That sign however was just there to make Cain conscious of God’s protection. 


Do you know why Moses had so much audacity to face the world power and terrorise him? It is because he experienced God! And he became so much conscious of God’s promise “I will go with you” (Exodus 3:12). It was an experience of a lifetime! Could you imagine that Pharaoh wouldn’t order his death? This is because Moses had the consciousness of God with him! David declared, even though I walk through the valley of shadows of death, I shall fear no evil! Yes… Because the Lord is with him! That’s what gave Moses that audacity! Not minding his past sins (Exodus 2:12), not minding he had an unsettled issue of murder in Egypt but he stood with so much audacity to demand that Pharaoh let his people go (Exodus 9:1)!


Have you wondered about David and Goliath? What did you think gave small David such an audacity to stand before a Giant? It is because David has the consciousness of God’s presence with him and it gave him the morale to stand before Goliath and challenge him to a fight (1 Samuel 17:46-47) !


The Bible says faith comes by hearing and hearing the word of God (Romans 10:17)! You need to so much mediate in the word that it eventually becomes your consciousness. It’s not enough to listen but to meditate that it begins to smell in your body. A point where it becomes your default setting. It is in the course of meditation that your faith is built. The more you meditate on God’s word, the more strong and unshakable your faith becomes. You need that consciousness in you, it makes you resist the devil and also watch him flee (James 4:7). How do you resist the devil? It is by simply submitting to God! The more we believe God’s word, the more we have submitted to Him.


Choose to keep trusting His word! When God says “He will never leave you, He can’t leave you!” Continue to Confess it!
