MOSES OBEYS GOD!
Moses did not want to go back to Egypt, but he went because the LORD told him to go. He obeyed God, which is good to do!
So, Moses went to the King and spoke the words that the LORD had told him to say, "This is what the LORD, the God of Israel says, 'Let my people go, so that they may worship me, in the desert.'"
But the King of Egypt said, "Who is the LORD? Why should I obey him? I don't know him and I will not let the slaves go."
Well, you know children, that the cruel King would not let the people go. In fact, he made them work even harder! Then, the LORD began to make terrible things happen to the King and to the people of Egypt. He sent plagues or disasters on them!
One of these disasters was that the LORD made thousands of frogs come up out of the river Nile. The frogs hopped about everywhere. They came into the King's palace and got into his bed and jumped all over him! He was so upset that he called for Moses and said to him, "Pray to the LORD to take these frogs away from me and my people and I will let your people go, to worship the LORD."
So Moses prayed to the LORD and all the frogs died.
But whenever the King saw that the frogs were all dead, he got angry and would not let the people go. Every time the LORD sent another disaster, the King would promise to let the people go. But whenever the disaster was past, he would not let them go! You know, kids, this cruel King reminds us of the Devil, who tells lies all the time and who rules over many people in this world. He loves to control us and to have us in his power, as slaves to sin. But if we put our trust in the Lord Jesus, who died for us, He becomes our King, instead of the Devil. I would rather have the Lord Jesus, who tells the truth, ruling over me, than the Devil, who is a liar, wouldn't you?
Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No-one comes to the Father except through me" JOHN 14:6
"Dear Lord Jesus, I want You to be my King and to rule over me. Set me free from the Devil's power. Amen."
