But indeed for this purpose I have raised you up, that I may show My power in you, and that My name may be declared in all the earth.
Wow, imagine God saying that to you—that His purpose for putting you in a position of power was to show His power and declare His name.
What an honor, right?
Well, maybe not.
What if that pronouncement was Exodus 9:16NKJV, and the man who God is speaking about was Pharaoh?
The point? God raises up the powerful and sets them down, He brings blessings and judgments on the “deserving” and “undeserving”, He does all things, even raising up an evil ruler, for one purpose: to show His power and declare His name. One day, every knee shall bow and every tongue declare that Jesus Christ is Lord—God will have his power and glory declared, one way or the other.
How will His power and glorious name be declared in your life today?
