Bestselling author and Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator (based on the research of Brené Brown) Justine Froelker wonders if she is like ‘hard hearted Pharaoh’ when he refused to let the Israelites leave Egypt. Justine wrestles through several chapters in Exodus to discover that we’re all stubborn like Pharaoh at times, but letting go of our control and giving everything over to God - because he is faithful - is what sets us apart.
Exodus 4:21b - "But I am going to harden Pharaoh’s stony heart, so that he will not free the people."
Exodus 7:14 - Eternal One (to Moses): "Pharaoh’s heart is as hard as stone. He refuses to release My people."
Exodus 8:15b - "And he hardened his own heart and refused to listen to Moses and Aaron, just as the Eternal had said."
Exodus 9: 7, 12 -
7b - "But Pharaoh’s heart was still as hard as stone, and he refused to release the people."
12 - "The Eternal made Pharaoh’s hard heart even harder, and Pharaoh was not moved by the miraculous deeds and the words of Moses and Aaron, just as the Eternal had told Moses."
