Some thoughts from Exodus 14:4, 8-9 (ESV)
The hard-heartedness of Pharaoh became manifest again as he broke his agreement with Israel after they left Ramses, by hastily pursuing them to restore domination over Israel.
God seeks to remove Israel’s enemies for good in that generation. Only the total destruction of the pride-driven mad man on the throne will do. His death and the destruction of his elite mobile army will send a message throughout the nation and the known world: “Don’t mess with My children!” And since He was and is Almighty God, this solution for Israel’s enemies must be supernatural. When they are destroyed, once for all, I will get glory over Pharaoh and all his host, and the Egyptians shall know that I am the Lord.
We often sing, “let Your glory fall,” but we seldom think about the consequences of such prayers. The Lord provides for us and protects us from danger and these bring Him glory.
Eliminating our enemies, especially powerful ones, brings Him even greater glory.
How does this impact your understanding of God’s glory?
