Who sent them all?

In this chapter we see God causing frogs and then insects to swarm and infest all of Egypt. All to show Pharaoh and everyone else His power. The goal was to have him let the Israelite’s go and worship God. We all know God meant for them to enter the land of milk and honey as He promised Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. But, in that land He also would require the people to worship Him.

But, what stood out to me was verse 22-23

22 But this time I will spare the region of Goshen, where my people live. No flies will be found there. Then you will know that I am the Lord and that I am present even in the heart of your land. 23 I will make a clear distinction between 23 I will set redemption between. my people and your people. This miraculous sign will happen tomorrow.’”

Exodus 22-23

What this says to me is the frogs and insects He sent before the flies swarmed in Goshen also. The Israelite’s also experienced the swarms of frogs and other insects. The people He was wanting to worship Him? One would think if He wanted someone to worship Him then why would He send such misery to them too? If I was them I would be screaming, “BUGS BUGS BUGS!” I would not trust God if such calamity was sent to me, His chosen one.

Just as in the series we are studying now on suffering we see again evidence that God is in control of the good and bad and He does send bad to His chosen. What I tend to understand as to why the swarms were sent to the Israelite’s also was so He can finally make the point to the Egyptians and Israelite’s equally with the flies. Where with the first plagues affected all, but He also had the power to set apart His people. That He had to power to control where even tiny flies go.

Just as in the series with R. C. Sproul Jr. talked about the blind man and God had him suffer his whole life just so Jesus could make a point of His power to others on earth. God had His people go through the suffering of all the swarms until the flies to make a point of His power to all the people of Egypt. What an honor it is to be used by the ultimate God who created everything to show the world His power. Lord, please use me in what ever way you need to. Only to reach those around me that You are in control of everything!
