In Moses’ career as national liberator we might think that the account is all about the conflict between Moses and Pharaoh. The real conflict was between God and the deities of Egypt. Egypt thought their gods were more powerful than those of other nations. They had to be more powerful than the invisible God that the enslaved children of Israel worshiped. God sends Moses to emcee the 10 rounds of this classic match. Each round pits a god against God the Great I AM. He wins, even against Ra, the sun god. God is almighty, the God above all gods. That speaks volumes about what our God can do in our lives. He also wants to dethrone everything that takes His place in our lives. Anything that captures our affections above God Himself. And we all find ourselves in that spot – at least from time to time. That’s why we need Jesus!
