Scriptures say what they say, and sometimes it’s hard to understand why. There was a time in Egypt when a couple of Israelite women told very deliberate lies and were honored for it. They were so honored for this that the Bible preserves their names, Shiphrah and Puah, for every generation since.
I don’t want to be the Christian that is just a seat-warmer at services. I don’t want to be a surface Christian—the type who knows how to walk the walk and talk the talk but is empty on the inside. In other words, faith and true belief are not really deep in the soul.
Have you ever wished you could get God to change his mind? It can be done, even if it’s something major. Moses was able to do it, and he did it twice: once shortly after leaving Egypt and again as they were on the brink of the Promised Land.
