“Let my people go, that they may serve me.”
The magicians and diviners could no longer stand before Moses because they were covered in boils (Ex.9:11). Without a shadow of doubt, the spies and adversaries of Israel knew the power of God was real, but they refused to have a change of heart. The wickedness in the human heart can only be removed by the hand of God (Ezekiel 36:26).
Moses remained alive and untouchable, by the power of God. He was raised from nothing for the glory of God. The power of God and His mighty works were constantly met with rebellion, hardness of heart and tyranny from Pharaoh. Even when Pharaoh’s witch doctors exclaimed, “this is the finger of God!” Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, he wouldn’t listen. Still yet, Pharaoh would not “let my people go.”
No one compares to God.
The Lord executes justice for all who are oppressed (Psalm 103:6, Psalm 146:7). Pharaoh exalted himself against the children of God (Exodus 5 – 10), but God allowed His wickedness to come into its fullness to demonstrate the fullness of His power and glory.
What is it that desires to exalt itself against the power of God? Every Pharaoh will be brought to the ground. He will crush Pharaoh by His mighty works. The Lord will use every Pharaoic situation (i.e situations met with defiance, rebellion, effrontery, opposition and determination) to show that He is God. Who can challenge the power of God and live?
