The Dog that Didn't Bark

The Dog that Didn't Bark
Sherlock Holmes tells a famous story of a racehorse that is stolen one night under the cover of darkness. In his wistful way, he unfolds the identity of the thief to none other than the horses trainer. How did Holmes know? Well, you see, the watch dog never barked, so it must have known the thief.
In Exodus 11, we see a similar scene described as God leads the Hebrews out of captivity and away from Egypt.

Exodus 11:7 (NKJV) "But against none of the children of Israel shall a dog move its tongue, against man or beast, that you may know that the LORD does make a difference between the Egyptians and Israel."

How do you move two million slaves and all of their livestock out of town without so much as a dog moving its tongue to bark? Well, it is a miracle, that is clear and simple.
 When God is on the move, we are certain that nothing can stop Him. We are confident that His will ultimately prevails. So, why don’t we have that same confidence when it comes to ourselves? Why is it hard for us to believe that, if God has called us, there is nothing that can slow us down in our obedience?
Let’s follow in faith this week as we find freedom in Christ.
1 John 4:4 (NKJV) "4You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world."
