Please read Exodus 7:14-25, Exodus 8, and Exodus 9. There’s so much to talk about every day – it’s hard to pick out one brief item! Here’s what I am thinking about this morning:
“Pharaoh called in Moses and Aaron and said, ‘Pray to God to rid us of these frogs. I’ll release the people so that they can make their sacrifices and worship God.’
Moses said to Pharaoh, ‘Certainly. Set the time. When do you want the frogs out of here, away from your servants and people and out of your houses? You’ll be rid of frogs except for those in the Nile.’
Pharaoh replied, ‘Make it tomorrow.’ ” (Exodus 8:8-10 MSG)
I find it interesting that when Moses offered to pray for relief from the frogs, Pharaoh answers “tomorrow”. Why did he want one more night with the frogs? Why not now? it’s not a surprise to see Pharaoh delay, I guess – he delays letting the children of Israel go time after time….. but tomorrow? I’d want those frogs gone now!
We delay sometimes – God offers everything we need to be successful in Him, but still we wait. Let’s not be like Pharaoh here – let’s go after God now!
