Daily Devotional – Frogs Here, There, Everywhere

Daily Devotional

Our scripture for the Daily Devotional today is taken from Exodus 8:1-5. God had given Pharoh 7 days to come to his senses. Pharoh had seen his people and well being threatened. Rather can submitting to God, Pharoh’s heart became even more hard and defiant.

Then the Lord said to Moses, “Go to Pharaoh and say to him, ‘This is what the Lord says: Let my people go, so that they may worship me. If you refuse to let them go, I will send a plague of frogs on your whole country. The Nile will teem with frogs. They will come up into your palace and your bedroom and onto your bed, into the houses of your officials and on your people, and into your ovens and kneading troughs. The frogs will come up on you and your people and all your officials.’”

Then the Lord said to Moses, “Tell Aaron, ‘Stretch out your hand with your staff over the streams and canals and ponds, and make frogs come up on the land of Egypt.’”

God was calling His people to worship

Moses had gone before Pharoh asking that he allow the people of Israel to have a long weekend away. The plan was to head out and have the opportunity to sacrifice and worship God in a place away from the day to day demands. How often is God asking us to come away with Him? 

After the bloody water filled the Nile and all water containers, you would have thought that things could not get worse. That was before hordes of frogs were driven from the waters of the Nile and surrounding areas. Most people have never seen the thousands of frogs in one place at a time. They were everywhere and in everything.

The Egyptian sorcerers were able to perform magic and tricks to get the same results. It only emboldened their arrogance and pride.

Let’s Pray

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank you, God, for proving to your capabilities and Lordship. As the creator of this earth and universe, you are the one that can perform miracles that overcome natural laws. Help me by Your spirit today to trust in You, the one who is the miracle maker.

In Jesus Name,

Amen
