Exodus 11

The final plague on Egypt is a Passover sacrifice.

INSIGHT

God's dealings with Pharaoh reveal His longsuffering attitude toward such rebellion. The plagues start out fairly minor, thus giving Pharaoh a chance to change his mind before utter calamity strikes. With each successive act of rebellion, the subsequent plague intensifies. Beginning with the unpleasant but fairly harmless plague of frogs, the process ends with the death of the firstborn of every household in Egypt. At any point, had Pharaoh repented, the plagues would have been stopped.

Analyze your own life. If you've entered into conflict with God, abandon the fight before it escalates.

PRAYER

· Rejoice in God's patience with rebellion and praise Him:

Blessed be Your glorious name,
Which is exalted above all blessing and praise!
You alone are the Lord;
You have made heaven,
The heaven of heavens, with all their host,
The earth and everything on it,
The seas and all that is in them,
And You preserve them all.
The host of heaven worships You
(Nehemiah 9:5-6).

· Pray this confession to the Lord:

The Lord is merciful and gracious,
Slow to anger, and abounding in mercy.
He will not always strive with us,
Nor will He keep His anger forever.
He has not dealt with us according to our sins,
Nor punished us according to our iniquities
(Psalms 103:8-10).

· Voice your affirmation of God's Word:

Since I am in Christ, I am a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new (based on 2 Corinthians 5:17).

· As you make your requests known to the Lord, pray for:
· greater love for fellow Christians,
· missions in Asia,
· your prayer list.

· Offer this prayer of worship to the Lord:

Now to You who are able to keep me from stumbling,
And to present me faultless
Before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy,
To God our Savior,
Who alone is wise,
Be glory and majesty,
Dominion and power,
Both now and forever. Amen
(based on Jude 24-25).
