Exodus 14:4 (NLT)
And once again I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, and he will chase after you. I have planned this in order to display my glory through Pharaoh and his whole army. After this the Egyptians will know that I am the Lord!” So the Israelites camped there as they were told.
There is three reason why things can go wrong in our lifes
- We made some bad decisions
- The Devil tried to destroy you
- God allows things to go wrong to show His Greatness
Two great examples in the Bible where God allowed the thing to get out of hand so that he can show His greatness was when he Pharaoh increased the labor of the Israelites and he killed Israel babies and Jesus allowed Lazarus to die.
God wants us to come to a place where he is the only one that can save us and our trust is in Him alone
God showed up for both. In fact for Lazarus Jesus was to late. Lazarus died. He even start to smell bad. Our circumstances might start to smell bad. But He still showed up change the circumstances. Raised Lazarus from the dead
For the Israelites it seems that we’re just getting worse. They work load increased. Pharaoh wanted to kill him. But when it seemed it His worse God took Israel out.
Proverbs 3:5 (NLT)
Trust in the Lord with all your heart;
do not depend on your own understanding.
