Exodus 7-9; Psalm 105; Ephesians 1

By Kelly Brady

🎶🎵Pharaoh, Pharaoh, Oh-Oh, let my people go!🎵🎶

We sang that song as kids and heard this story in Sunday School.  How does it relate to us today?  What can we learn and apply to our lives today?

I see Moses being called by God having to tell Aaron what miracles to perform.  Not Moses, Aaron.  Then I see Pharaoh acting just like any of us when something bad happens and then things get better, we go back to living our sinful life.  Remember 9/11.  People were in church, God was moving and then we forgot.  Remember COVID?  We were wearing masks and washing hands like crazy!  Now we have sort of forgotten how bad it was.

Moses could have been the one performing the miracles but he doubted his ability.  Pharaoh could have saved himself and his country whole lot of loss if he had recognized God as the Alpha AND Omega.  You and I can save ourselves a whole lot of heartache if we would stop being self indulgent and look around us and see a world that is dying before our eyes and do something.

We need to let God use us!  It’s not someone else’s responsibility to tell your family about the amazing ways of God.  It’s your responsibility to share how God has worked in your life through the “plagues” and the miracles.  You know he has, and you know who needs to hear it.  Don’t be a Moses and let God use someone else.  He wants to use you.  Psalm 105:2 “Sing to him, sing praises to him; tell of all his wondrous works!”
