CityLight Pastor Commentary:
“But Pharaoh will not heed you…”
When we walk in divine authority, sometimes we expect everyone will simply say yes to us. Yet God tells Moses this is not always the case. It wouldn’t have made for a very exciting story if Moses had asked for Pharaoh to let his people go and Pharaoh just caved in right away and said yes. God specifically hardened Pharaoh’s heart so He could do something MUCH GREATER than simply making Moses’ adversary say yes to his request! If you know God is calling you somewhere, but somebody keeps standing in your way and saying no, don’t get angry. Get excited! God may be getting ready to put His power and glory on display!
“…so that I may lay My hand on Egypt and bring My armies and My people, the children of Israel, out of the land of Egypt by great judgments.” – Exodus 7:4
“Father, don’t let me be discouraged by ‘no,’ and don’t let me settle for ‘yes.’ You have greater things planned for me, and I want to see your power and glory out on display!”
