Guest: Don't Revive the Dead Egyptians by Sharon Srock
God came down that night and worked a mighty miracle in the corporate lives of his people. They crossed the Red Sea on dry ground and when the Egyptians tried to follow, God caused the sea to swallow them up.
Verse 30 of that chapter says “…Israel saw the Egyptians dead upon the seashore.”
The next chapters and verses relate how Israel continued on their journey, free from the thing that hindered them, giving God the glory for their deliverance.
But the Egyptians were lying upon the seashore… Do you know what the Bible does not say? It does not say that any kindhearted children of Israel attempted mouth to mouth or CPR in a bid to revive the enemy. They left them behind and continued on their way. Harsh?
How many times do we ask God for help in a situation…deliverance from a habit or negative emotion only to go back a few days later, take pity on the thing dying in our dust, pick it back up, and carry it with us on our journey.
You just took pity on the thing that held your life captive…you just revived the dead Egyptian. He won’t thank you for it. He will only enslave you with stronger bonds.
What are you asking God to help you with? Once He’s answered your prayer be careful not to REVIVE THE DEAD EGYPTIANS in your life.
