I have been reading Exodus. (NIV)
If any of you have noticed, this book of the bible is about God’s power.
In many passages, it mentions “To show His power”, or just statements that are about God’s amazing power.
God could have wiped the Egyptians of the face of the earth for not letting His people go, but He didn’t. He wanted to show his power, and sent ten plagues.
The plague of/on:
In another passage, He only sent some of the plagues on the Egyptians, and not in the places where the Israelites lived.
He showed that a reward would come to those who trusted and obeyed Him, by sending the hail, and whoever, Israelites and Egyptians alike left their animals, servants, family outside, they would be destroyed. Whoever listened trusted and obeyed God and brought their families and animals and servants in got the reward of no one getting hurt.
God knows the future, because He is the one who made the future happen, or let it happen. It’s always for a reason. He let/made Pharaoh’s heart be hardened so that He could show His power and control over them and everyone else.
He also let the Egyptians pursue the Israelites when they left so that He could show His power to the both the Israelites and the Egyptians.
God’s power is amazing!!
Then the Lord said to Moses, “Now you will see what I will do to Pharaoh: Because of my mighty hand he will let them go; because of my mighty hand he will drive them out of his country.”
This verse is from NIV.
