“But when Pharaoh saw that the rain, hail, and thunder had stopped, he and his officials sinned again, and Pharaoh again became stubborn.” (Exodus‬ ‭9‬:‭34‬ NLT)

“The Flood of 1955” was one of the worst tragedies to hit Connecticut, causing 87 deaths and millions of dollars of damage. According to a report by Jeanne A. LeBlanc of the Hartford Courant, one of the worst heartbreaks was the deaths of Patrick & Margaret Mullin, both 70. After being safely rescued and evacuated to Westminster School, they walked back to their house as the pre-dawn flood waters were rising. They would later be found drowned in their attic. Once safe, now perished. 

We are all guilty of Pharaoh’s sin, of seeing God move yet continuing on in stubborn wrong decisions. God doesn’t make us that way, we freely choose it and then reap the after-effects. The sad part is when our poor decisions cost others a price. Stubbornness does that. 

The Bible and history books are filled with stubbornness that resulted in tragedy. Study why the Bible compares stubbornness to idolatry [see 1 Samuel 15:23], then let your heart be open to God’s correction and instruction that leads to life! You are loved today!
