Some thoughts from Exodus 9:8-12 (ESV)
The hard-heartedness of Pharaoh refused to obey the Lord despite the severe injury to the health of all of his citizens.
With everyone in the country affected, and the magicians unable to stand in the court of the king because of having succumbed to the plague from the God of Heaven, the Lord was tired of the games this small man was playing with Him. The text tells us that the Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh. While many theologians debate the morality of this act, their discussions are meaningless. Whether one likes the reality of this action or not, there should be a warning here to all who choose to stand in God’s way: Submit or be decimated and destroyed! God is god. Theologians are not god. And the Lord isn’t moved by the ramblings and judgments of humanity. He does what He pleases, when He pleases to whom He pleases, without impunity. That’s the lesson one should take from this statement and from this series of encounters between God and Moses.
When God wants to rescue His children, He will go to any lengths to make it happen and the person who stands in the way of the Almighty will be shredded.
Have you experienced this kind of love from God?
