We know that GOD is in the fire, the cloud and the rain. HE is in our hearts, the thoughts and our veins. HE is in us when we are in HIM.
The solution to our weary existence away from our maker, the creator, is to put HIM first as we are put FIRST in HIM. To do to GOD what GOD does to us.
All life stopped, All thoughts were captured, all wits dismembered, all hopes stalled, all dreams stopped and they work to the reality that if GOD left humanity, there was going to be a great depreciation and consequently, a lack of cohesion to life.
GOD can use a baby's smile to heal the broken-hearted, a child’s walk to save the misdirected, a woman's wit, a man's senses, a buzzing fly, a moving train, a lost coin, a manifold stack of cards.
This Hail, the eighth sign from GOD, was greater than anything Egypt had seen. It was hail of ice and darts of fire. Only the finger of GOD could fight men in their own conjoined battles and win beyond interpretation.
This is me speaking freely to you, Chi. It is shocking and way beyond me honestly. Here, if this was a game of chess, GOD had HIS checkmate move three plagues ago yet HE insisted that it was not enough by hardening the heart of Pharaoh.
This is also why GOD is eager to get Israel free because no child of GOD is slave to man, men or the wits and ways of men. In this regard, GOD gives Pharaoh another answer of faith. Separation.
So for Pharaoh, it was GOD's way of stretching his doubt to its limits; how far could his query of GOD go? However, Pharaoh did believe. In the moment of torment, in the evidence that these things were by the hand of GOD, Pharaoh believed.
Whether, we can analyse the reason why HE does what HE does, it is certain that GOD is in the business of stunning us with the impossible to do what is made possible only by HIM.
