I Want to Do This Willingly

Recently I have been reading in the book of Exodus and I have found that God is a very generous God but after you repeatedly refuse to do what He wants you to do He gets very upset.  Pharaoh in Exodus 7-11 refused to let God’s people go many times and after a while God got mad. God sent plagues to change Pharaoh’s mind and it didn’t work.  God will only take just so much from people; you and me included.  God gave Pharaoh many times to repent but Pharaoh was stubborn- even when his own officials and magicians told him that this was God- he still refused. God said over and over ” I will get glory from you”.  Pharaoh refused to give God glory so God made it so He would get glory in spite of Pharaoh. In the end, God hardened Pharaoh’s heart and destroyed Pharaoh and his army.  I don’t want to do the same thing that Pharaoh did; I want to give glory to God willingly.  I challenge you to want to do the same- to give God the glory no matter what.
