TOPIC - OBSTINACY

Read: Exodus 5:2

MEMORISE: _And Pharaoh said, "Who is the Lord, that I should obey His voice to let Israel go? I do not know the LORD, nor will I let Israel go_ (Exodus 5:2).


EXPOSITION
The biggest challenge in today’s word is not the lack of money, housing (shelter), education, social amenities, or essential commodities, but the lack of the knowledge of God. The Bible says, And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting_ (Rom. 1:28).

This is a critical issue. God decided to give up on some of His creation, especially, some reprobate human beings created in His own image and likeness. Why? They chose to go about without the desire to acknowledge and retain the knowledge of God, who created them. The issue is not of possession, but retention. We were created with the capacity to know what we are willing to know, especially God. Yet, many, because of their depravity, foolishness, and craziness, decide to be like sieve, not wanting to retain the knowledge of God. Godlessness would eventually lead anyone to damnation.

There are millions of people who exist just like the biblical Pharaoh who queried, *_Who is the LORD, that I should obey His voice to let Israel go? I do not know the Lord, nor will I let Israel go._* How many millions are out there hurling insults at their Creator by asking similar questions, and behaving in like manner? If there is anything God wants from us, it is His praise, sincere acknowledgement, wholehearted adoration, flamboyant thanksgiving, and undiluted declaration of His lovingkindness and wonderful works. Nothing can please God than your service to Him.

PRAYER POINTS
1. Lord, give me the receptive heart and yielding spirit to know You, wholly, as my Lord.
2. I rebuke the spirit of worldliness and being reprobate from the lives of those who are yet to know the Lord Jesus, in Jesus’ name.
3. The Egyptians were led to their early grave by Pharaoh. Lord, help our leaders to lead us to You, in Jesus’ name.

EXTRA READING FOR TODAY: 2 Chronicles 24:2 – 26:9; Acts 7:55 – 8:16
