I have been extremelly busy latelly and I thought I didn't want to "post just for posting"...so I was really waiting on something that spoke deeply to my heart and yesterday I received this email..it's a devotional written by Dana Congdon. Check it out and see if it also speaks to your heart:
Feb. 9 Exodus 7:14-9:35 Matt. 24:32-51Exodus 9:35
"So Pharaoh's heart hardened, and he did not let the children of Israel go,just as Jehovah had spoken through Moses."It is hard to believe that someone could be so hard hearted. Pharaoh now has defied Jehovah nine times and the cost is getting greater each time.
Is it possible that people today could be so hard?It seems that man learns to adjust to curses, wraths, plagues and judgments because there is just no rational reason for them except bad Karma, lousy luck or "that's life".
What does it take for God to get the heart's attention? When these plagues are matched up with the final events in Revelation we see men well into the great tribulation and still hardened of heart and full of rationalizations.
But then there are those who fear Jehovah. And just his slight displeasure causes pain. And their consciences have been sensitized by the Light of fellowship until they at times suffer from over-sensitivity.
Such dear ones are kept in the eye of the storm as when the crops and the cattle of Goshen were preserved through the plagues.And what would the difference be that marks the 'sensitive ones'? Mainly this, that they heard the Word before it happened and BELIEVED and were consequently readied and sheltered. Moses had spoken the whole thing step by step before each stage happened. The end times cause little fear to those who are prepared and provided for by believing the Word.
Seen any frogs lately?
