Do you call yourself persistent while others call you stubborn? Some people think, If I could only see a miracle, I could trust God. God gave Pharaoh just such an opportunity. When gnats infested Egypt, even the magicians agreed that this was God's work - but Pharaoh refused to believe.
He was stubborn, and stubbornness can blind a person to the truth. When you rid yourself of stubbornness, you may be surprised by the abundant evidence of God's work in your life.
While persistence is good, stubbornness toward God is always disobedience. Avoid disobedience because the consequences may spill onto others...in His grip.
This is the finger of God! the magicians exclaimed to Pharaoh. But Pharaoh's heart remained hard and stubborn. He wouldn't listen to them, just as the Lord had predicted. Exodus 8:19
