Exodus 9: 12But the lord hardened Pharaoh’s heart, and just as the lord had predicted to Moses, Pharaoh refused to listen.
Exodus 9: 30But I know that you and your officials still do not fear the lord God
Exodus 10:2I’ve also done it so you can tell your children and grandchildren about how I made a mockery of the Egyptians and about the signs I displayed among them—and so you will know that I am the lord.”
You ever wonder why God hardened Pharaoh’s heart if He was truly trying to get the Israelites out of Egypt? Why keep doing things over and over again when you don’t have to. You are God you should be able to just snap your finger and it’s done.
True BUT how else will one learn? How else will one realize there really is a one true God? Sometimes we have to be hit in the head a few times before we finally get it.
What are you being hit in the head with right now that God wants you to just get it already?
Lord, please open our eyes and our hearts so that we finally get whatever it is that you are trying to teach us. Help us to see that there is an easier path to take and that is yours when we leave it all in your hands. Thank you for being willing to take on our burdens and allowing us to have peace like none other. AMEN
