For the Scripture tells Pharaoh, I raised you up for this reason so that I may display my power in you and that my name may be proclaimed in the whole earth. Romans 9:17
Notice- Pharaoh, the one who held the Children of Israel hostage as slaves in Egypt and then pursued the Children of Israel to the Red Sea, displayed God’s power and brought God Glory. Just how did Pharaoh do that?
Pharaoh’s hard, stubborn heart generated the opportunity for God to display His power through the Plagues that were brought on Egypt due to their leader’s refusal to obey God. And, it was also Pharaoh’s hard heart that caused him to pursue the Israelites to the Red Sea where God parted the waters so the children of Israel could pass through on dry ground.
Not only is God glorified by those who follow Him and share his name, but those who reject Him can also display God’s power and draw attention to His holiness.
So as you make your journey today—spread God’s name to everyone who will listen– and if you see someone who rejects God—remember that won’t stop God from being glorified. Take Care and have a great day.
