One More Night with the Frogs

When Moses went back to Egypt as a prophet of God, He told Pharaoh that God would bring plagues upon Egypt if he didn’t let Israel go. Pharaoh laughed at Moses and told him to go away. After Moses prayed, the Nile River turned to blood and all the fish died. Pharaoh called Moses and asked him to turn the Nile back to water. He said he would let Israel go. When Moses did, Pharaoh hardened his heart and wouldn’t let Israel go. Moses prayed again, and frogs came up from the Nile and covered Egypt. Frogs were one of Egypt’s gods. Pharaoh called Moses again. He asked Moses to pray and remove the frogs. He would let Israel go. Moses asked Pharaoh when he wanted the frogs gone. Pharaoh answered and said tomorrow. He was going to spend one more night with the frogs. It was because he didn’t want to give up. He knew that the frogs were a disaster. And he knew that his life was a disaster, but he was unwilling to surrender to God. Do you recognize your life? I do. I was unwilling to give up my disaster. Until it became so unbearable. At that point I didn’t know what to do. Thank God, He sent someone into my life. Even then, it took 3 months of talking to me to convince me. But I surrendered. God opened heaven for me. My life has been blessed. God goes before to make the way. Oh yes, all of my gods fell away and disappeared. That place where you spend one more night with the frogs, is being caught between the rock and the hard place.
