The Lord our God said, “Tell Pharaoh to let my people go, that they may serve me.” Then our Heavenly Father told Moses that Pharaoh’s heart was hardened and that he would refuse to let the people go! From the bloody water, to the stinky frogs, to the nasty flies and the disgusting lice: Pharaoh would eventually cry out for relief. Then he would go on to do just as our Lord had said.
When the Lord speaks 
When the Lord speaks, we do not get to question, ponder or reason His words; instead we listen for what it is that He has for us to do. Moses and Aaron understood this but what about Pharaoh. Our scripture tells us that Pharaoh’s heart was hardened. So, how could he do what the Lord said? If you are wondering this, I will remind you that these verses are not about Pharaoh, Moses, Aaron or the children of Israel. No, this is about exalting our Heavenly Father; or in His own words:
“For I will at this time send all my plagues upon thine heart, and upon thy servants, and upon thy people; that thou mayest know that there is none like me in all the earth.” (Exodus 9:14 KJV)

Declare His name 
The Lord our God said, “Let my people go, that they may serve me”; then He showed them and all who have ever read or heard about these verses that there is none like Him. Declaring then, now and forever that He will raise up whom He wants, show His power and declare His name throughout all of the earth.

“And in very deed for this cause have I raised thee up, for to shew in thee my power; and that My name may be declared throughout all the earth.” (Exodus 9:16 KJV)

And, that faithful reader is as the Lord has said.
