“Why be obstinate like the Egyptians and Pharaoh were? When He had done His work among them, didn’t they let the people go?-and they left.”
1 Samuel 6:6 CJB
The point here is the Philistines have taken the ark of the covenant from Israel and they been plagued with plagues and disasters! The question is how long will you go against God? How much more damage needs to be done?
“Pharaoh got up in the night, he, all his servants and all the Egyptians; and there was horrendous wailing in Egypt; for there wasn’t a single house without someone dead in it.”
Exodus 12:30 CJB
Here we see it took ten plagues to get Pharaoh to give up and let the people go! How long do we hold onto opinions, grudges or situations that really only hurt us, before we just give up and let God take over?
“Therefore, repent and turn to God, so that your sins may be erased.”
Acts 3:19 CJB
Today, don’t be like the Philistines or the Egyptians just give up, repent and watch what God will do!
Have a blessed day walking in the forgiveness God gives us when we repent!
