Exodus 9:20-21 Some of Pharaoh's officials were afraid because of what The Lord had said. They quickly brought their servants and livestock in from the fields. But those who paid no attention to the word of The Lord left theirs out in the open.
Then The Lord said to Moses, "Lift your had toward the sky so hail may fall on the people, the livestock and the plants throughout the land of Egypt."
How often have I been in a bad situation because I didn't know God's word, didn't listen to the Holy Spirit...or just did what I wanted in spit of what I knew that God says. Our lives are so much safer....easier...less stressful when we listen to God.... When we stop and talk to the Holy Spirit then listen our lives are better.
