Sunday Scripture Blessings 6 23 19 Link Up

Hello, and Happy Sunday. Trying again since think things may be resolved with inlinkz link up.

And the story of Moses leading God's people out of Egypt begins.

Exodus 3:13-14
And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them? and God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM, and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.

As I read in the book of Exodus, I have always wondered, Why? God hardens Pharaoh's heart, why would he do that?

I counted twelve plagues that God sent on the Pharaoh and his people, and each time God hardened the heart of Pharaoh so that he did not let the people go.

1 Rod turned to a serpent
2 Waters turned to blood
3 Frogs everywhere
4 Lice
5 Flies
6 Cattle died
7 Boils
8 Pestilence
9 Hail
10 Locusts
11 Complete darkness
12 Death to all firstborn of the Pharaoh and his people

Each time though, God saved the people of Israel from suffering any of those plagues.

This time reading through this story, it dawned on me that had Pharaoh bent to Moses and said, "Okay, your people can go." What would really be the lesson in all this? Of course God knew that if he didn't hardened Pharaoh's heart, then there would be no lesson learned. God knew he had to show Pharaoh that he is the LORD. Pharaoh, each time, tried to have his Wise men and sorcerers compete and do the same, but they could not compete with the plagues that God sent.

Exodus 5: 2
And Pharaoh said, Who is the LORD, that I should obey his voice to let Israel go.

Or at least that's my take on this scripture in reading it this time around.

I appreciate all who have stopped by each week to visit and share. Thank you.

Sunday Scripture Blessing 6 16 19

Jesus, such a smart man as he walked the earth. Sometimes the way we perceive things is not always how it should be. Eating with unclean hands, as Jesus explained, did not mean we would put dirt into our mouths which would then defile us. I am one who does always wash their hands, but I'm sure there are cases of people who are so starved that they will eat just about anything, anywhere, and with unclean hands. That does not the man make.....however, if his heart is unclean with bad thoughts, bad wishes for others or just plain evil, then he is defiled. So, with that thinking, it is sad that some are homeless, baths are not readily available nor is hand washing so if they are handed something to eat, and their hands are not clean, they do not defile themselves? Same with how someone might look at someone more unfortunate than themselves. If they eat with dirty hands because they have no choice, but the one who thinks badly of them, of these two, which is defiled? A rule or law can be good in one circumstance, but should not be followed in other circumstances. Jesus wanted us to allow for times when;  is it really necessary to hold fast to thinking that is not that important?

Hope all have a Blessed Sunday. Thanks for visiting.

Sunday Scripture Blessings 6 9 19

Psalm 22:9-21

But thou art he that took me out of the womb: thou didst make me hope when I was upon my mother's breasts. I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou art my God from my mother's belly. Be not far from me; for trouble is near; for there is none to help. Many bulls have compassed me; strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round. They gaped upon me with their mouths, as a ravening and a roaring lion. I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels. My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death. For dogs have compassed me; the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me; they pierced by hands and my feet. I may tell all my bones; they look and stare upon me. They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture. But be not thou far from me, O LORD: O my strength, haste thee to help me. Deliver my soul from the sword: for thou hast heard me from the horns of the unicorns.

Was this a song of Jesus to come?

I'm sorry as there is no link up. I totally give up on @InLinkz. I have an account, but it won't let me in, and says that I don't have one. Each week, it is something new with them. I hope you will continue to stop by and say hi on Sundays.

Sunday Scripture Blessings Link Up 6 2 19


Just a few of the many promises that God gives. How empty lives would be if there is no peace or calmness within us, no hope of things to come, but just the mundane. And of course love....we all love, love; to feel love - to be loved - and a good feeling when we share love. Without strength, how would we carry on day after day. But the God who created us, knew we need these as well as so many other promises. He is an awesome God.

Happy June and my prayer is that June blesses you. Thanks for stopping by, and linking up or just saying hello in the comment section. Have a great Sunday and week ahead.

NOTE: With this version of InLinkz, there are ads, but instead of on the page, they are as a link up so just letting you know in case you don't want to click on those. Should be able to tell which is an ad.
