Show Them You are Yahweh

Deuteronomy 33:26
There is no one like the God of Israel. He rides across the heavens to help you, across the skies in majestic splendor.
Deuteronomy 33:26

Isaiah 30:21 (NIV)
Whether you turn to the right or the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you saying, "This is the way, walk in it."
Isaiah 30:21 (NIV)

Romans 1:16 (NIV)
I am not ashamed of the Gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.
Romans 1:16 (NIV)

Exodus 7:5
When I raise my powerful hand and bring out the Israelites, the Egyptians will know that I am the LORD.

Just a little bit of research shows that each of the plagues was a slap in the face of at least one Egyptian god. Often it was an insult to more than one. Lord, you were showing yourself stronger than all other gods. You still are! You were showing the Egyptians that you are the LORD/Yahweh. You are always present to act. Unlike their false gods who were just twisted reflections of YOUR creation and could do nothing.

Lord, please do this for the "Egyptians" in my life. Please show the unbelievers who I am praying for that you are Yahweh, present to act in salvation. Please show yourself stronger than the false gods they are relying on. Give them eyes to see and ears to hear so that they might turn, repent and follow you. In Jesus' Name, amen.
