Outline For Scripture Union Daily Guide 24 January 2023

God was not asking for too much. After years of servitude, a three-day interlude to worship God would not be a major set-back for Pharaoh’s building projects (5:3; 8:27).

He refused because he did not know the power of Israel’s God but now, he knows. He now has a fair chance to ensure the security of his people. He has seen how God does not make empty threats (8:2-4). Whatever He says, He does (v.6). It makes perfect sense to listen to the voice of reason and let the people go to worship for three days and come back as Moses originally requested. Unfortunately, Pharaoh chose to resist the request of the Almighty. He would lose much more than three days free labour in the end. He would lose his slaves altogether.

Some people see God’s request today with the same eyes as Pharaoh’s, and they resist Him in the same manner. Jesus Christ gives out both an invitation and a fair warning in Matthew 16:24-26. To reject Him is to act in a manner even more foolish than Pharaoh! God had offered not to punish Pharaoh and his people if he allowed Israel the liberty to worship Him. Now He is offering freedom from bondage to sin and Satan eternally to those who choose to worship Him alone.
