Unquestioned Obedience
Now Playing: Are we willing to obey God and His Word in every part of our life ?
Exodus 7:1-13

Moses went before Pharaoh, and from this point forward we see unquestioned obedience on his part. Total obedience is really recognition of God's absolute sovereignty, and this is what Moses finally recognized.

The complete obedience of Moses is also seen in Exodus 7:10: "And Moses and Aaron went in unto Pharaoh, and they did so as the LORD had commanded."

Verse 20 emphasizes the same theme: "And Moses and Aaron did so, as the Lord commanded." Twelve times God gave the orders, and twelve times Moses and Aaron did as God said.

Miracles began to happen one after another as they gave unquestioned obedience to the Lord. This teaches us that we must be where God wants us to be at the time He wants us to be there, and we must do what He says if we expect to see things happen.

As the believer desires to act and obey, he will see God work mightily in and through him.

"Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people" (Ex. 19:5).

(from T. Epp)

I am so glad I looked around and found your site today. I'm encouraged to find such an encouraging and enriching site out there in the world of crazy postings. May you be blessed by your work.

Also, I would love to know what translation you used for the final Ex. quote. It just sounded particularly pretty to me.
