Exodus 4 – God’s Sovereignty vs Our Choice

 

“The Lord said to Moses, “When you return to Egypt, see that you perform before Pharaoh all the wonders I have given you the power to do.But I will harden his heartso that he will not let the people go.”” Exodus 4:21.The words in bold bring us face-to-face with one of the most perplexing questions arising from Scripture: who is responsible for what’s going on in the world and in our hearts? Is it God or us? Was it God who caused Pharaoh to disobey him or was it Pharaoh himself who chose to? Was it, therefore, fair and just for God to treat Pharaoh the way he does in Exodus or was God cruel and even benign in his dealings with Pharaoh? Can we accept a God who, as this verse seems to indicate, actively causes infidelity and subsequently enacts his wrath upon that disobedience? These are some of the very difficult questions that both the church and people outside the church wrestle with. Sunday night we’ll explore this more fully and hopefully discover the beauty that lies within these very deep doctrines.
