from my notebook

My head is full of thoughts, and I have to write them down.

Pharaoh Won’t Listen

In Exodus Chapter 7, God gives Moses his instructions for approaching Pharaoh to let the Hebrew people go. Then God says, “but he won’t listen.” And to top it off, Pharaoh doesn’t listen because God hardens his heart so he won’t grant Moses request.

At first glance, I understand God did that so he would get ultimately get the credit and glory, and so I think that’s a nice warning Moses gets. But is it? How would feel if God gave you specific instructions about something, in this case something really major, and then told you it would be to no avail? Would you be encouraged to carry on?
