One more Night with the Frogs
Ex 8:9-10 (NKJV) 9And Moses said to Pharaoh, "Accept the honor of saying when I shall intercede for you, for your servants, and for your people, to destroy the frogs from you and your houses, that they may remain in the river only." 10So he said, "Tomorrow." And he said, "Let it be according to your word, that you may know that there is no one like the LORD our God.
A few questions come to mind with this curious exchange between pharaoh and Moses. No doubt pharaoh is dealing with the plague of frogs just like everyone else in the land. The first couple of verses tell us that they were literally everywhere. In the ovens, on their bodies… not a comfortable situation. Why would God lead Moses to ask “When?” Maybe it is a test, but more likely God is revealing the stubborn heart of this king.
How often are we stubborn in our sin? How often do we continue to suffer when God has offered rescue and forgiveness? What sin strongholds could we give over to God today?
Hebrews 3:12-13 (NKJV) 12Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God; 13but exhort one another daily, while it is called "Today," lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.
