What do you think of God hardening Pharaoh’s heart? Was he fair to do this and still hold him responsible?
I was having a problem with that myself. Why would God harden Pharaoh's heart? But He said it was to show both group of people that HE is LORD and HIS mighty power. God didn't have to do that. Pharaoh could have just let the Israel people go, but than God wouldn't show HIS power - show off. If Pharaoh had let the Israelites go - than he could have went after them later, and he wouldn't have known God's great power.

I see this today - God hardening people's hearts around me. This is to show me how mighty our God is.

Is it fair? I don't think so, because people has died from it. What are to to question what God does? 😉
