The idea of these little devotionals is simple. I want to approach scripture with the understanding that God is speaking. I’m reading through the Bible and listening for God to ask me questions. I expect these questions to be fairly open-ended and plan to carry them in my mind throughout the day. I’ll share these questions with you in the hope that you find them challenging and helpful.
This is a little longer than most of the passages we’ve been reading. This is where you’ll read about the first 9 of the 10 plagues God brought upon the Egyptians. We’re not going to break it up because it’s more effective to take it all in. I’m not going to copy it here so follow the link above and read it there. It won’t take that long to read. Go ahead. I’ll wait.
From this passage I hear God asking me:
What was Pharaoh’s problem?
What do you learn about me through all this?
I’ve asked it before, but what kind of a God do you think I am?
How do I fit into your carefully constructed “god-box”?
