We’ve all heard of the 10 plagues God sent on the Egyptians to convince Pharaoh to let the Israelites go……..Here’s one of them.

 

Exo 8:3  The Nile will teem with frogs. They will come up into your palace and your bedroom and onto your bed, into the houses of your officials and on your people, and into your ovens and kneading troughs.

 

When God sent a plague He didn’t mess around.  Frogs in your house, frogs in your streets, frogs on your porch, frogs in your kitchen, frogs in your bed, everywhere you went….FROGS.  And you just know, Mrs Pharaoh told her husband, you better get rid of these frogs and now.

Exo 8:8  Then Pharaoh summoned Moses and Aaron and begged, “Plead with the LORD to take the frogs away from me and my people. I will let your people go, so they can offer sacrifices to the LORD.”

Exo 8:9  “You set the time!” Moses replied. “Tell me when you want me to pray for you, your officials, and your people. Then you and your houses will be rid of the frogs. They will remain only in the Nile River.”

Exo 8:10  “Do it tomorrow,” Pharaoh said. “All right,” Moses replied, “it will be as you have said. Then you will know that there is no one like the LORD our God.

What Pharaoh said to Moses strikes me as a very weird answer……..Tomorrow???

WHY?????

I’m not here to speculate why. All I know is, a few thousand years ago…Pharaoh wanted to spend one more night with the frogs.

What I want to ask you is this, what frogs are you dealing with today?  Frogs that are on you, around you, surrounding you, keeping you in bondage?

Frogs that have been plaguing YOU…….The ones that God says “I am willing, I am able to set you free. You go to church week after week.  You go to Bible study.  You go to mid week services.  Week after week….   And you tell God….yes, I want to be free.  But I want it……tomorrow.

You don’t HAVE to wait till tomorrow.

God wants to set you free TODAY.    Today is your day of freedom.

There are far too many people living their life with frogs because we answer just like Pharaoh did in this text…..we say….tomorrow

I’ll get around to it….tomorrow.

Yesterday.   You said tomorrow…..

We are in today. Which is yesterday’s tomorrow…..but you still haven’t done anything yet….because you’re still waiting for tomorrow.

Sometimes people exist in today, but they live in yesterday, and never step into the tomorrow that God has for them.  Simply because they refuse to do something….TODAY.   THE THING GOD HAS TOLD YOU TO DO……TODAY

Today is the day…..of salvation…..Today is the day of deliverance. Today is the day of freedom. Today is the day of healing….

I’ve been doing this for a few years now and sometimes I wonder this…..

Why do some step into the fullness of Gods destiny for them…and others don’t?

Some walk in freedom and others don’t?

We sit under the same teaching.

We all have access to the same resources. The internet insures this.

We all read the same Bible…..

The same Jesus died for ALL of us……

Just why is it that some seem to move forward and some don’t.  Does God have favorites?  Of course not.

What I believe is this. The issue is not a political problem, or a social problem, or a moral problem, or an economic problem. Donald Trump is not the problem, Hillary is not the problem, the Russians didn’t do it.

It’s a FAITH problem

Too many unbelieving believers

We need some BELIEVING BELIEVERS. Someone who believes that God is who he says he is….can do what he says he can do……and WILL DO what he says he can do…

There is no tomorrow, if you don’t deal with yesterday……today……you will never step into tomorrow. Now read that one more time.

 

Some Christian’s never step into their future….because they live in their past….and they simply exist in TODAY…….and it’s the same cycle….day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year. You gotta make a decision today……

It’s amazing how many of us will never ever deal with yesterday. We will talk about it but we stay stuck in yesterday, we say “Tomorrow”.

If you feel like you are stuck in your past today, remember the following verses:

Isa 43:18  “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.

Isa 43:19  See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.

The Lord says…I am doing a new thing…NOW. You’re greatest days are still ahead, don’t wait till tomorrow to get rid of your frogs.
