Daily D – Exodus 10:3
Exodus 10:3 So Moses and Aaron went in to Pharaoh and told him, “This is what the Lord, the God of the Hebrews, says: How long will you refuse to humble yourself before me? Let my people go, that they may worship me.“ (CSB)
One of the most victorious days of our lives is the day we realize we are not God. Better still is the day when we exalt God as God with joy and delight. Until we get this right, everything is wrong. The first order of operations is acknowledging God as God. The second is trusting him in every moment.
Pharaoh refused to see God for who he is. He trusted in himself and his collection of puny gods. His hardening heart ruined everything for the Egyptians.
That’s not good leadership.
Sometimes, the best leadership lessons come from bad examples. Pharaoh provides us with a nice Top Ten list.
What have you learned from Pharaoh’s foolishness?
How do you embrace God’s grace and mercy?
How do you exalt him alone as God?
This is a book full of experiences with God on the go. One of the most used words in this book is “go.” We can go with God into the special future he has for us, or we can end up with a whole lot of nothing like Pharaoh. On this day when I am traveling home from the Far Country, I gladly go with God. Don’t leave home without him.
I will know God is God and go with him wherever he leads.
Our Father, you alone are God. I am not. You can do anything but fail. You are perfect in every way. Lead me all day in every way. Amen.

Deuteronomy 8:12-18 When you eat and are full, and build beautiful houses to live in, and your herds and flocks grow large, and your silver and gold multiply, and everything else you have increases, be careful that your heart doesn’t become proud and you forget the Lord your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the place of slavery. He led you through the great and terrible wilderness with its poisonous snakes and scorpions, a thirsty land where there was no water. He brought water out of the flint rock for you. He fed you in the wilderness with manna, which your ancestors had not known, in order to humble and test you, so that in the end he might cause you to prosper. You may say to yourself, ‘My power and my own ability have gained this wealth for me,’ but remember that the Lord your God gives you the power to gain wealth, in order to confirm his covenant he swore to your ancestors, as it is today.
Deuteronomy 6:4-9 “Listen, Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. These words that I am giving you today are to be in your heart. Repeat them to your children. Talk about them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Bind them as a sign on your hand and let them be a symbol on your forehead. Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your city gates.“
Deuteronomy 1:2, 3 It is an eleven-day journey from Horeb to Kadesh-barnea by way of Mount Seir. In the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the first of the month, Moses told the Israelites everything the Lord had commanded him to say to them.
