Exodus 9:34 And when Pharaoh saw that the rain and the hail and the thunders were ceased, he sinned yet more, and hardened his heart, he and his servants.
So many people act like Pharaoh. In the middle of the calamity and problem they cry out to God to forgive them. They get right with God temporarily. But once the problem is over they forget what they have said. They go right back to the old way of life.
How many times have I rebelled in the same way. I need God when I need Him but soon forget Him when my problems are over.
I don’t want this to be the story of my life. I want to love God when it is going well and when it is not. I want to be faithful in the good times and in the bad times.
I want to make life changing decisions. Not just decisions that I use to manipulate God in my own mind!
