Exodus Ch.9

Abba Father, we thank you for Your Word. We thank you that You alone are the LORD God, the One who loves with an everlasting love and gave Your One and Only Son Jesus Christ to die for all the sins of the world so that everyone could be saved, forgiven, healed, whole and receive eternal life. We ask for Your presence to follow us all through the week and the rest of the month LORD In the Name of Jesus. Right now, we ask for revelation as we read and share Your Word In Jesus Name, Amen.


Exodus chapter 9 is a continuation of the plagues that were sent to the Egyptians as a result of their disobedience to let the children of Israel go out of their land as requested by Moses and Aaron to the Pharaoh. Chapter 9 contains three plagues, that is the fifth, sixth and seventh plague. The fifth plague was the death of the Egyptians livestock while the livestock of the children of Israel did not die (Exodus 9:6). The sixth plague was the boils that were sent on all the man and beast in Egypt (Exodus 9:9) but Pharaoh's heart was still hardened and he did not let the children of Israel go (Exodus 9:11).

The seventh plague was hail. This hail was no like other as seen in Egypt before. The hail was mixed with fire and it was so heavy that it struck both man and beast and broke every tree that was in the field (Exodus 9:25). This plague caught Pharaoh's attention and as previously, he called on Moses and asked him to pray to the LORD God so that it could stop and let the people go. Despite Pharaoh witnessing the power of God through the plagues and through Moses' prayers that stopped the plagues every time he prayed, Pharaoh nevertheless despised the ways of God and refused to let the children of Israel leave Egypt. Exodus 9:34 reads, "And when Pharaoh saw that the rain, the hail and the thunder had ceased, he sinned yet more; and he hardened his heart, he and his servants."


However, all these events happened so that the LORD God would be glorified in His Majesty through all generations in the world. Just like Pharaoh some challenges may prove stubborn but take heart because God will not disappoint you when continue to put your trust in Him. In the book of 1 Samuel, we see David on the run from King Saul and during his time his enemies attacked him and took his wives, property including the property and wives of his men. David was disappointed and distraught but he chose to lean into God during this difficult time. 1 Samuel 30:6 reads, "Now David was distressed for the people spoke of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and his daughters. But David strengthened himself in the LORD his God." Later on, we see that David inquired of the LORD who re assured him victory. Indeed David went to battle and recovered everything that the enemy had stolen from him and his people (1 Samuel 30:18-19).

The Word continually shows us that when challenges present themselves to be stubborn, God is an ever present help in time of need (Psalm 46:1).

Friend, wait on the LORD in prayer with full confidence that He is on your side and He will continue to strengthen you.


I'll end with this Word in 1 Corinthians 10:13 NLT

"The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure."


AMEN. Thank you LORD.


TO BE CONTINUED...


Invitation to salvation: If you would like to know this God who from the beginning of creation has always desired for you to be reunited and restored in relationship with Him through His One and Only Son Jesus Christ - whose faithful promises are yes and amen, whose mercy and love endures forever not just for the children of Israel but for the entire world, I invite you to make this confession;

"I believe with my heart and confess with my mouth that; Jesus Christ, the Son of God came in a human body to die for my sins so that I could have a new life where I am dead to sin and alive to God. I repent of my past sins and enter the Kingdom of light where I choose Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour today and forever."

Congratulations, by grace you are saved and are now a new creation in Christ Jesus. The old life has passed away and you have received the free gift of salvation into your life (2 Corinthians 5:17). To the glory of the Almighty God. Amen.
