Scripture Text: Exodus 14:1-14:31
v-4 “And I will harden Pharaoh's heart, that he shall follow after them; and I will be honored upon Pharaoh, and upon all his host; that the Egyptians may know that I am the LORD. And they did so.”
v-8 “And the LORD hardened the heart of Pharaoh king of Egypt, and he pursued after the children of Israel: and the children of Israel went out with an high hand.”
God Has a Plan
Introduction: When did God form His plan? 2 Timothy 1: 9 declares it is “from all eternity.” I Peter 2: 20 says it was from “before the foundation of the world.”
God’s plan is an eternal plan that has existed from all eternity.
While it is an eternal plan, it is unfolded and manifested in time or human history. However, the entire plan was formed from all eternity and it is not subject to change.
God is not scrambling about trying to work out His plan or make last minute corrections. When we fumble the ball, or when things go wrong, or when tragedy strikes, according to Scripture, God’s plan has not slipped a gear. He is still on the throne and in control.
The tragedy was (or is) a part of God’s plan. God includes our fumbles and allows the tragedies of life in His sovereign purpose (Isaiah 43: 10-13; 44:6-9, 24-28; 45:6-13, 20-22).
Point 1. God’s plans are always MADE in ADVANCE [vs. 1 - 4]
God knew of the famine and hunger in the future that is why He made Joseph go through all the hardships and hoops before he became the Prime Minister of Egypt. He received the dream of the famine in the near future and started to gather and store food, which would not only save the Egyptians but Israel’s [Jacob] family and the world.
Point 2. God’s plans do NOT need your HELP..only you’re OBEDIENCE
(a) Fear Not
(b) Stand Still
(d) Keep Silent
Point 3. God’s plans are NOT always LOGICAL [vs. 15 – 18]
Point 4. God’s plans are NOT LIMITED to what is humanly possible [vs. 21 & 22]
Conclusion: Amidst all the confusion and uncertainty of the world in which we live, how assuring to know that God orders our steps! Our faith need not be in blind chance nor in circumstances, BUT should be in an infinite wise God who does all things well, who knows the end from the beginning and whose every desire for us is for ultimate good and His glory.
