Can We Bargain with God?…

Read: Exodus 10-12.
Marked: Exodus 10:24, Then Pharaoh called to Moses and said, “Go, serve the LORD; only let your flocks and your herds be kept back. Let your little ones also go with you.”

Can we bargain with God? Moses told Pharaoh (V9), that they would go with their children and their flocks and herds to offer sacrifices to God. Pharaoh appears to relent at first, but then adds the condition that the flocks and herds be left behind.

It is foolish to bargain with God. His Word must be obeyed. We run into trouble when we try to get out of full obedience to Him. We must worship as He has instructed. We can’t hold anything back from Him.
