Then Pharaoh’s servants said to him, “How long shall this man be a snare to us? Let the men go, that they may serve the Lord their God. Do you not yet understand that Egypt is ruined?” So Moses and Aaron were brought back to Pharaoh. And he said to them, “Go, serve the Lord your God. But which ones are to go?” Moses said, “We will go with our young and our old. We will go with our sons and daughters and with our flocks and herds, for we must hold a feast to the Lord.” But he said to them, “The Lord be with you, if ever I let you and your little ones go! Look, you have some evil purpose in mind. No! Go, the men among you, and serve the Lord, for that is what you are asking.” And they were driven out from Pharaoh’s presence. Exodus 10:7-11
Pharaoh’s men want to cut their losses and give Moses at least some of what he’s asking for. Pharaoh was at first quibbling over the lost productivity of slaves for a short while, and is now king of the ash heap. He offers to just let the men go, but Moses is staying with God’s plan of full deliverance.
Today, Satan’s kingdom has been brought to ruin, but because we don’t believe it, we take the terms we are offered. We have been made free from sin, but we still have “acceptable” levels in our lives. We have been given power, but we accept the lie that it has either passed away or been downgraded. It is time to believe God regardless of the situation.
