You can find a RSS feebling on our website, www dot, dewberry baptist ClarksbridgeDcomyou're, holding on to a ledge, with both he John, a clip and you're holdingon with both hands. If you let go you dropp to your death, there's a friend of yours, you got tooclose to the cliff. You were up walking with your friend you slip down, yourfriend says: Grab my in and he reaches you N ant. His and Ow to you have achoice: oilet go and grab the head...

...and, if he's not strong enough, I'mgone Odo. I keep hanging up because I'm not sure if he's strongenough, what do you do? We would all trust or fe we would hopewe kept holding homesooner or later we're going to drop, and so we would let go and grab home,hoping pray that that hand my Pauliser, I haven'tditled. My emotion today putsyour hand in the hand of the man from Galalee, trusting God holding out. Then dilemma is real. It's a dilemma. We face every day. Will we let go and hold on to God...

...or not? We fiund our way, still goingthrough the book of Exodus or Reading For Todays Exto, this chapter eightthrough teen. I want a re, verse, eight, Nineteen andthen we'll com. I A little bit only verse chapter, Eight First Nineteen, then the Magensitian said the Paro this,if the finger of God but paraol's harm, was heartenedand, hedid not listen to them. As the Lord had said, Mako got away through the book of exwas.We left off yesterday with Faro telling Moses Noe, make things harder, so Moses wentout. The ELNERS got mad at Moses. Now, gods allowed some plates to come and hes no knows e smalls as you go andtell Farel. This is going to happen and...

Mos as you go and tell parol. This isgoing bop and some of the plagues began occur. Up to this point, Faral's magicians hadbeen able to duplicate to a certain extent, Tamericaes Ofe God. Thus in Chapter Seven verse, Twenty Two Mosa said Faro God's going to bring aplague on the lamd and the waters are going to be turned to blood and feneral's magicious said now. Wecan do that too, and they turn waters to Blo as well. Then am eight seven. We see Mosus comeback to payro and say Faro God going to Sene frogs on the land and this'll be a judgment as well andfaderal Magenitian said Yeah. We can do that too, and they writ more promse onthe Lan. whace is kind of ironic. Is it not...

...in trying to prove they are as great asGod they contributed to God to judgment onthem? It's kind of IURONIC? And finally, I imagine gods and haven laughing asthey're doing this, but now in chapter eight. First,nineteen, these great magicians of the world, these greatist magicians, who are theequivaent of even today's magicians. You might see on television, doinggreat magitrites these magicians unable to duplecate this miracle. These magicians say, which is themiracle of Lice. These magicians say this is the finger of God. What a confession by lost people, they weren't saved, they ad the Gods of Egypt, theyworshiped, and yet they saw this, and they didn'tsay this: These are the fingers of God,...

...their purality of Gods that theEgyptians worshipp no. This was a confession of Moses's God, for they said Faro, whatever happened here. This is the finger of the God. MOSIS isspeaking of this is the hand of the true God, andyet, even with the realization that this is gone and no one, but God coulddo such a thing. There's no change of heart, in fact inverse nineteen that very verse afterthey sai to Faro. This is the finger of God. Phaeron's heart was hardened. Isn't it interesting that the typicalresponsible at to a true miracle of God is to recognize it as a miracle of Godor as se preme being and yet never to alter ones? likelostpeople see...

Miracles of guy and they sai. You know what that wasgone. Only God could do there, but I'm not going to give him my life, I'm not going to get saved, I'm not going to surrender. Isn't it sad that we see that time andtime again lost people recognizing God's doing something and yet not willing to surrender his asif God was trying to get the Egyptian's attention, theyhave refused to admit that he wasgode and finally, when circumstances fort them to admit that God is got andto Bein all of him. They were in all of Hem, but only to forget...

...only to go back to their life the nextday only to return to their routine ofliving where they had refuse to acknowledgeshe's gone, and thus the Hound of Heaven pursues us. God's Holy Spirit pursues us continually pursuing, just as he waspercering the Egyptians and they rigected. God is so lovely to pursue us for arelationship. God allows circumstances to shake us. He allows incidents tooccur, which Prin imetrate to the very corp of our B. He allows things what coverd nineteento Ha, so it well stop and thin Bot. What's going on in this world. What is God doing, and in these moments we tend to admit,...

God is gone. We even had been God. I need you, we may even further in me. It God, I have a desire to change. PARON would have meet that in ChapterEight Furst, twenty eight, where he would be tempted to let the people go thendesire to change, and yet, when the trial was over were tempted to go back to the waythings were before the trial were atempted to forget the finger of we're tempted to act as if we're God ofour lives. Again, God in His grace, may bring more trialsto change our heart, but ultimately we have to take and make Ajoyce. We had to take the grace he geves usand make tha choice.

God May give us another opportunity totrust him. He May, but at some point he's Donehe gave Faro ten opportunitiesplaying one two, three four: Five, all waitat ten tien opportunities- Godevidenced himself shown himself the finger of God. Ten Times there wasgreat Miston for favrol Achange, but Faro would no Changedon't neglect thefact that God was giving opportunities here,white in blakes. Why nont, wone, Wat IRT Theron go dothis? Why don't you say: Okay, payrome, I'm just leting. My people go if youbollow a tekilld cause God's a god of givingopportunities of giving chances over...

...and over, but at some point when wereject those chances, God stops. Thus we pause for this question. Will I choose to trust the hand of Godwhen I see the finger of God? I choose to trust that hand reachingdown for me, or will I forget the finger of God continue to trust my onad our lives, our very eternal liethepiano naranswer, we're all hanging on the edge ofeternity. May We all PLAC Sary in the hand of theman from Galowee, the man got Jesus Christ. What a reat greatness fromthese pages of Exidus well tomorrow,...

...we'll be reading exidis chapter eleventhrough thirteen, as we con teem to make our way through this amazing book,but I want to pray with you again before we call otherwe. Thank you again for theselessons that you're teaching us amazing lessons about faith. The book of Exoduson is all about God's Solvit that God's in control and ye. Even though you're in control, you give us opportunities to admit such to say: Okay, God, I trust you. I pray father for everyone who watcheshis video, who may not be same, and this would be the day of salvationwhere they say. Okay, again at God, I'm trusting you and for those of us who are sane, maywe always...

...braves and Jesus. Thank you again. forjoining. As I lookforwar to seeing you here again tomorrow,.
