August 20 Exodus 9:8-12

Heavenly Father, help me to not allow anything to keep me apart from You.  I know there have been times I have allowed sin to keep me from seeking You.  Many times, we allow our busy schedules or our leisure activities to keep us from seeking You.  I know even good things can sometimes get in the way of us spending quality time with You.  Help me to put You first and not seek out anything that would get in the way of allowing You to fill me up.

In Jesus’ name.


This is the sixth plague that God brings upon Egypt.  How many plagues before Pharaoh realizes the power of God and that he can’t win against God? 

Even the magicians that had denounced God and worked to try to prove these plagues were nothing more than “magic” suffered from these boils to the point they couldn’t stand before Pharaoh.

Do you ever find sin keeping you from God?

The enemy would love nothing more than to use your past sin, that God has already forgiven, to keep you a prisoner.  When we allow something to keep us from worshipping God, we are indeed prisoners. 

Come to God with repentance in your heart, and I promise you will find forgiveness and love in the arms of Your Savior.

Exodus 9:8-12

And the Lord said to Moses and Aaron, “Take handfuls of soot from the kiln, and let Moses throw them in the air in the sight of Pharaoh. It shall become fine dust over all the land of Egypt, and become boils breaking out in sores on man and beast throughout all the land of Egypt.” 10 So they took soot from the kiln and stood before Pharaoh. And Moses threw it in the air, and it became boils breaking out in sores on man and beast. 11 And the magicians could not stand before Moses because of the boils, for the boils came upon the magicians and upon all the Egyptians. 12 But the Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh, and he did not listen to them, as the Lord had spoken to Moses.
