The finger of God reveals who God is. God is all powerful and what he does reflects who he is, a powerful God. There is none like him and there is no one on earth who can compare.
In Egypt when Moses caused lice to appear on people and animals the magicians attempted to do the same, but failed. The best they could do was just to advise Pharaoh. The Bible in Exodus 8:19 says,”Then the magicians said unto Pharaoh, This is the finger of God: and Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, and he hearkened not unto them; as the Lord had said” (KJV). The magicians in this scripture were telling Pharaoh that the power of God was greater than the power of magic. They refered to this power as “the finger of God”.
The finger of God will close every argument and settle every dispute. When God is about to deliver his people his power will manifest. His power is not just for show. It is for our deliverance, salvation and healing. If you are sick, God will heal you and when you are not saved God will save you. All you need is to surrender to him. Pharaoh hardened his heart, but that led to a greater manifestation of the power of God, the same power the magicians refered to as the finger of God.
When Jesus cast out a demon from a person who was dumb people wondered at the marvelous works of God. However, some of the people accused him of casting out demons by using what they called “the Chief of demons”. Their logic did not seem to add up and Jesus corrected their way of thinking. In Luke 11: 20 Jesus says, “But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you” (KJV). Jesus delivered people from the bondage caused by demons with the finger of God. The kingdom of God is the Kingdom of power. This power delivers people from demon power.
The power of God has no limits. When Jesus was on his way to heal Jairus’ daughter a bad report came saying that there was no need for Jesus any more because the girl was now dead. In Mark 5:35 the Bible says, “While he yet spake, there came from the ruler of the synagogue’s house certain which said, Thy daughter is dead: why troublest thou the Master any further” (KJV). Jesus told them not to fear. As human beings our thoughts tend to always limit what we think God can do, but always remember that with God the harder the situation gets the more power is released.
The greater the challenge you face, the greater the power that will manifest in your life. People tend to set limits to the power that knows no limit. The power of God is greater than anything else and that is why in those days they saw it as being the finger of God.
Let us pray:
Lord, we would like to see the finger of God in people’s lives today. I pray that you may touch every one reading this posting in the name of Jesus so that he or she can see the finger of God. Ideas conjured by unbelief have hardened people’s hearts for deliverance, but the finger of God does manifest a power much greater. Now Lord, heal, save and deliver your people in the name of Jesus. Amen.
