The Mighty Power of God
Without a doubt the Bible is first and foremost a story about God. And as we move into the second book I am reminded that God is telling us that there is NOTHING too difficult for Him to do (Genesis 18:14; Jeremiah 32:27). One of the profound exhibitions of God’s power in the book of Exodus is His power over all creation.
Pay particular attention in chapters 8–10 that “there is none like unto the LORD our God” (8:10); “This is the finger of God” (8:19); “for to show in you my power; and that my name may be declared throughout all the earth” (9:16); “that you may know how that the earth is the LORD’S” (9:29); and “that ye may know how that I am the LORD” (10:2).
But also consider the arrogance and stubbornness of Pharaoh. Can we also harden our hearts even in the presence of the unmistakable power of God? We need to put our faith in His power and respond in faithful obedience. Stubbornness and arrogance can only lead to a “darkness that may be felt” (10:21). Be faithful!
