Exodus 12:36 (NLT) — 36 The Lord caused the Egyptians to look favorably on the Israelites, and they gave the Israelites whatever they asked for. So they stripped the Egyptians of their wealth!

Many people get picked up every day by police and the highway patrol for DUI > driving under the influence of alcohol. Alcohol can impair a person’s driving ability and many people have died, killed and maimed others, broken up families, gambled away their paychecks, and started fights because they were under the influence of alcohol.

The Egyptians were under the influence of the Lord and they gave away all of their wealth to their slaves! Where do you need the Lord’s influence in your life? Do you need a spouse to treat you better? Do you need a boss that is understanding? Do you need co-workers to pull their share of the work load? Do you need your children to honor and respect you? Do you need to influence some one to give their life to Jesus? Do you need influence with a teacher or students? Do you need influence with a job interviewer? Where is it that you need influence?

Why not ask the Lord for his influence? People do the unexpected when they are under His influence. Look at what the Egyptians did.

Be Inspired Hilltop!
