Exodus Ch.10

Holy Spirit, we invite you into our mind, heart and body. May You enlighten, speak, comfort, heal and deliver Your people as we read and share the Word today In the Name of Jesus, Amen.

Exodus Chapter 10 starts with the eighth plague which is the locusts. Exodus 10:15 shows the severity of this plague. It reads, "For they covered the face of the whole earth, so that the land was darkened; and they ate every herb of the land and all the fruit of the trees which the hail had left. So there remained nothing green on the trees or on the plants of the field throughout all the land of Egypt." These locusts covered the entire land until it was dark and they ate every plant which potentially could have caused a famine in the land!

To a very small extent, we see Pharaoh recognizning the urgency to let the children of Israel go. However, he was not open to permitting all of them to leave Egypt at once (Exodus 10:11). At some point, Pharaoh even threatens them and says, "...the LORD had better be with you when I let you and your little ones go! Beware, for evil is ahead of you." Of course these were only empty threats because the plagues were a sign that God was already fighting for His people. Shortly after, Pharaoh called for Moses and asked him to intercede on his behalf so that the plague could go away. However, the LORD still hardened Pharaoh's heart and he did not let the children of Israel go after this plague (Exodus 10:20).

Consequently, we see the ninth plague which was a plague of deep darkness all over Egypt. Despite the deep darkness, the children of Israel still had light in their dwelling places while the Egyptians had a deep darkness surrounding them for three days where the people could not see each other regardless of their proximity (Exodus 10:23). At this point, Pharaoh calls onto Moses again and tells him to leave his land. Exodus 10:24 reads, "Then Pharaoh called Moses and said, "Go serve the LORD; only let your flocks and your herds be kept back. Let your little ones also go with you."

This text is important is because when God gives a Word, it must be completely and entirely fulfilled. Sometimes, the enemy may whisper lies of a short cut, or compromise but compromise and half baked promises is not God's best for His children. James 1:17 tells us, "Every good and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change."

Thankfully, Moses informed Pharaoh that the only way they could leave Egypt is if they left with all their belongings including their flocks and herds (Exodus 10:26). Moses' response aggravated Pharaoh as he said, "Get away from me! Take heed to yourself and see my face no more! For in the day you see my face you shall die!" (Exodus 10:28).

Moses by faith also responded, "You have spoken well. I will never see your face again." (Exodus 10:29). When you are certain and fully convinced that it is impossible for God to lie especially when it comes to His Word and good will concerning your life, your faith will begin to speak faith filled words just like Moses.

I'll end with this Word in Hebrews 11:6 (NKJV)

"For without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him."
