“And I, behold, I will harden the hearts of the Egyptians, and they shall follow them: and I will get me honour upon Pharaoh, and upon all his host, upon his chariots, and his horsemen.”

Exodus 14:17


Have you always wondered why some Bible characters played out evil acts that resulted in God’s judgement? You would have also asked questions to be sure that God is not biased.

Yes, our God is not biased as stated in the scripture: “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” 2 Peter 3:9.

In today’s devotional, we recognise God’s enduring grace towards all, but most people ignore or take God’s act of mercy and kindness for granted.

Beloved, “What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?” Romans 6:1. God forbids that act of ignorance. King Saul became a scapegoat of God’s judgement because he obeyed the voice of men. If anyone decides to overlook God’s mercy and do not repent, but instead dares Him to judge, just like the Egyptians who had the opportunity to turn back and fear the God of Israel, such fellow can be a scapegoat for others to learn from.

May God help us to be obedient to His voice and the leading of the Holy Spirit in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Further study: 1 Samuel 15:10-23

Charge: Obey the voice of God at all times!

Happy Good Friday.
