(Second Milers also read – Mark 15 – 16; Proverbs 22; Psalms 106 – 110)

Read the “0122 Evening and Morning“ devotion for today, by the late Charles Haddon Spurgeon.

“And the LORD said unto Moses, Rise up early in the morning, and stand before Pharaoh, and say unto him, Thus saith the LORD God of the Hebrews, Let my people go, that they may serve me. For I will at this time send all my plagues upon thine heart, and upon thy servants, and upon thy people; that thou mayest know that there is none like me in all the earth. For now I will stretch out my hand, that I may smite thee and thy people with pestilence; and thou shalt be cut off from the earth. And in very deed for this cause have I raised thee up, for to shew in thee my power; and that my name may be declared throughout all the earth. As yet exaltest thou thyself against my people, that thou wilt not let them go?” (Exodus 9:13-17)

Good morning. As we look about this deteriorating world we live in, we can see a dwindling tolerance for Christianity. Can you think of one word to sum up the problem? How about religion? You can either work your way to God through religion, or have a relationship with God: know Him personally. Here is the problem: there can be only one right way: whose religion is right? Nobody’s…

“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” (Matthew 7:21-23)

Religion is not going to get you to Heaven. Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father but by Him. You need to have a relationship, not a religion.

As we see Pharaoh in this passage, he is raised up. God raised him up to demonstrate His great power. Pharaoh may have thought he was the man in charge, but he wasn’t. God has always ruled, and will always rule. Throughout all the plagues Pharaoh went to Moses to ask the Lord to remove them. The only one that would not be removed was the death of the firstborn. Pharaoh would finally let the children of Israel go. But Pharaoh chased after them in his chariots. And God got the glory for freeing His people from bondage in Egypt, as the waters of the Red Sea swept over Pharaoh’s chariots and army.

There is a right way and a wrong way to do things. Jesus said without me, ye can do nothing. God’s way is always the right way. When we do things in our own power, it will only lead to failure. If we have a relationship with the Lord, He will show us the right way to go, and the right thing to do.
