Exodus 8:1-13 Have you ever wrestled with a situation that stubbornly refuses to go away? It seems to be immune to everything. You hit at the thing in every way, but instead of being eliminated, it expands and multiplies until it's completely out of control. Pharaoh faced that kind of situation,the Bible says that he was in dispute with God over the future of the Israelites, and as a result of that dispute, he woke up one morning to find his country swarming with frogs. creepy, smelly, slimy frogs hopping all over the place.
It was a serious situation. I'm not talking about a frog or two in the yard. I mean frogs were everywhere—in their beds, on their tables. Frogs in the bathroom, frogs in the food and the drinking water.Frogs in their hair. Frogs, frogs everywhere.
Then God sent Moses in to Pharaoh to ask, "When shall I entreat the Lord to get these frogs out of here?"
Do you know what Pharaoh said? "Tomorrow"
Can you imagine that? He could have said, "Right now! Today!" But instead he decided he would spend one more night among the frogs.
You say, "That's the stupidest thing you ever heard. Why in the world would he say tomorrow?" I don't know. Probably for the same reason you want to wait until tomorrow to get rid of your problem. To get saved or healed or delivered.
Here's what I want you to notice. When Moses asked Pharaoh that question and he answered, "Tomorrow," Moses said, "All right. So that you know there's a God in heaven, be it done according to your words."
Let me ask you this: How long are you willing to let that persisting situation control your life? When are you going to get rid of the frogs in your life? Do you realize they'll stay around as long as you'll let them? They'll be there until you finally make a conscious decision to go with the Word of God and get rid of them.
Why don't you do it today?
You are what the Word says you are.
You can do what the Word says you can do.
You can have what the Word says you can have.
Begin to believe that.
Begin to say it out loud in faith
The Word of God is living and active. If you confess the Word of God over your heart and life, it will not return void. We encourage you to meditate on these confessions.
And I have put my words in thy mouth, and I have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion, Thou art my people. (Isaiah 51:16)
The Lord has put His words in my mouth therefore I shall be his mouthpiece, and because He covers me I shall not be afraid to speak.
