Scripture: Exodus 6:1-7
Praying in the Spirit will unfold to us the richness and depth of His great name. Jehovah thy Elohim, the Lord thy God is a powerful name! God reveals Himself in Exodus 6:1-7 as the God who delivers by great judgments. “Therefore say to the children of Israel: ‘I am the Lord; I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians. I will rescue you from their bondage, and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with great judgments. I will take you as My people, and I will be your God. Then you shall know that I am the Lord your God who brings you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians.’” For a generation to know Jehovah they have to see Him deliver through judgments from the bondage of corrupt leaders and judges. That is why we must pray prayers that challenge darkness by releasing judgment. We do not want to be satisfied with praying nice prayers of merciful blessings on those who are destructive and abominable. If they reject God and their actions lead others toward destruction, it is time to pray in the Spirit and ask the Lord for powerful prayers full of the might to deliver the innocent and set captives free. Let’s decree and declare under His wise counsel and see freedom come! The Lord our God promised that through covenant He would intervene and break the bondage. This is how a generation gets to know Him! It is no mistake when the Word says in Isaiah 26:9b, “For when your judgments are in the earth the people of the world will learn righteousness.” Saints, let us not hesitate to go there! When God is leading the way, the outcome will always be redemptive. It is time to represent Jehovah, the God of judgment! The Lord our God promised through covenant that He would intervene and break the bondage. Let’s embrace our birthright!
