Then Pharoah called for Moses and AAron and said, entreat the Lord that He may take away the frogs from me and from my people and I will let the people go, that they may sacrifice to the Lord. And Moses said to Pharoah, accept the honor of saying when I shall intercede for you, for your servants and for your people, to destroy the frogs from you and your houses, that they may remain in the river only. So he said, tomorrow. And he said, let it be according to your word, that you may know that there is no one like the Lord our God – Exodus 8 : 8 – 10.
The Lord plagued king Pharoah and his people. According to the word of God, there was no place that was free except where the children of Israel were living that was free from the plagues. The king was forced to call on Moses to intercede for him and his people which he accepted and now asked him when he wanted the frogs to be removed because that is nothing for God to do and I believe Moses will be surprise to hear the king’s reply. The king still want to pass one more night with the problem.
How many times do we do like Pharoah which we don’t know? God will place a wish in our mind, instead of going straight and ask Him for the wisdom and strength to fulfill it, but we will like to postpone it till another time with some unreasonable excuses like I am not educated, I don’t have experience, I don’t have money, I don’t know anyone that will introduce me, my age is not up to the required age, it will be too stressfull for me, I am tired, because of the experience I have gotten from people I am afraid, the shirt and shoe I have to wear is not quality enough, I am not feeling fine and so on and so fort. He want us to trust Him, He want us to have faith in Him and He want us to rely on Him.
Brethren, anytime God place a wish in your mind, don’t waist time because time is too short to waist for irrelevant things. If God tell you to jump, don’t waist time to look where you are jumping to if there is foam or stone before you can now decide to jump because if you delay, He can use another person to carry out the mission. Before we do anything, we need His wisdom, YES but asking for His wisdom should not be way of shying away of our responsibility. He has given you the strength you need to fulfill the mission before He gives you the opportunity. We should be wise so that we should not sleep with the frog till tomorrow.
Father, You are full of wisdom and might. Give us the grace to fulfill any wish You have place in our mind and the ones that are yet to be reveal to us so that at the end the glory and the honor will be given to Your name in the name of Jesus Christ.
