Heavenly Father, may I learn from Debbie’s example of humility and obedience and always pray that I could be a woman of humility, prayer and be willing to see that I need a pure heart, a humble heart, a heart to see where I need Your healing touch.  I know we all have areas where You need to be allowed to work on us.  I know You have so many layers of work to do on me.  I thank You, Father for Your patience, love, mercy, and grace.  I don’t understand why You are so patient, but I am so very grateful that You are.  Help me see Your truth for my life.  Help me be willing to make the changes You have for me to make.

In Jesus’ name.


Yet again, Moses and Aaron are instructed by God to go to Pharaoh even though God told them that Pharaoh’s heart would be hardened. God knew that the miracles performed by Aaron would not change this man’s heart.

It is so easy for us as humans to live with a hardened heart. I know. I spent five years or so with a very hard heart toward a family member. I remember praying faithfully that God would change this person as soon as possible. Instead, God convicted me of my sin and taught me not to pray for change in the other person, but a change in my own heart. I spent a few years convicted and praying this prayer many times a day.

He answered me. This was not a miracle of Biblical proportions but a Biblical lesson for me. Are you dealing with a hardened heart toward a situation or another person? Ask God to reach deep within your hardened heart and cleanse you and convict you of your hardened heart. Only then can your heart be made right with God.


Exodus 7:8-13

Then the Lord said to Moses and Aaron, “When Pharaoh says to you, ‘Prove yourselves by working a miracle,’ then you shall say to Aaron, ‘Take your staff and cast it down before Pharaoh, that it may become a serpent.’” 10 So Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh and did just as the Lord commanded. Aaron cast down his staff before Pharaoh and his servants, and it became a serpent. 11 Then Pharaoh summoned the wise men and the sorcerers, and they, the magicians of Egypt, also did the same by their secret arts. 12 For each man cast down his staff, and they became serpents. But Aaron's staff swallowed up their staffs. 13 Still Pharaoh's heart was hardened, and he would not listen to them, as the Lord had said.
