Moses objects and tells God the people will not believe him. God gives him the power to work miracles. We point back to the miracles of Christ today.
Moses leaves with instructions to give the message to Pharaoh to let the Israelites go. Pharaoh had hardened his heart toward their cries and pleas. God was prepared for judgment on the Egyptians depending on Pharaoh’s response.
Moses goes astray and the Lord grows angry with him. When God has given us a direction and we decide to go it on our own or take our own path it displeases Him. God sent Aaron as a helper for Moses. The more time they spent together the more they saw it was God’s plan for the two to come together.
Pharaoh continues to be hard toward them and deaf to their concerns. Moses went to God when the people didn’t receive him on His power. The Israelites were quick to complain to Pharaoh but did not come to God or God’s man.
God renews his promise with Moses. We have to realize that apart from God we cannot do anything for Him. Anything we do apart from Him is to glorify ourselves or in the wrong manner.
