Exodus 10:1-12:13; Matthew 20:1-28; Psalm 25:1-15; Proverbs 6:6-11
Have you ever encountered someone whose heart is so hardened that they refuse to hear logic, reason or common sense? Do you know of someone who completely rejects the things of God and has no use for God?
You should not allow this to intimidate you! Because we have free-will, God cannot violate our will. But, God does know how to make an unwilling person willing. You may even have people for whom you are praying and it seems like the more you pray for them, the worse they get.
When you pray for someone, God does two things. First, He dispatches angels to go to work on their behalf. Angels will bring the right people around them who will show them the right way to God. These angels will also protect them in dangerous situations. Next, God will have the Holy Spirit convict the person of their behavior and show them the way back to God.
Pharaoh was completely unwilling to obey God! Yet, when God’s children are involved, God will do what it takes to get the job done. If you are facing a stubborn person or situation that appears immovable, be encouraged! God will work on your behalf to get you the victory. Pharaoh had to change his mind and they will too!
