Pharaoh asks Moses and Aaron, the ones who have been battling all along, to bless him. Through all the power struggle within Exodus already, the most powerful person in the world asks these lowly Hebrews for a blessing. Why? Gracious loser? Accepting defeat? Admission of role reversals? Can't be, not with what is coming next....(Hint:Its a chase scene)
I can't wrap my head around it. BUT God was the one that hardened Pharaoh's heart. So God can soften it too.
When have you been surprised by someone in power? Why?
Lord give us wisdom to discern the mysteries in which you operate. Give us grace to recieve them as mystery and know you are still at work without proof of reason or rationale. - Amen
