That My Wonders May Be Multiplied


Exodus 11:9

And the LORD said unto Moses, Pharaoh shall not hearken unto you; that my wonders may be multiplied in the land of Egypt.

“God didn't answer my prayer. Because of that, I don't believe He is God.” This is the statement of someone who felt God had not answered their prayers. They said their life had worsened because they prayed and God did not answer. Now, when someone says this, we don't know all the parameters of their life that they are not discussing. Many times, a life getting worse has nothing to do with God, but with something in their life that they don’t want to give up. Many times, people want God to answer their prayers to make their lives better, but they don't want to change those things in their lives that are making their life worse.

However, there are times when it seems that life is getting worse even though we are praying. The children of Israel experienced this while they were praying for God to deliver them from the hand of the Egyptians. They initially asked Pharaoh to let them go and worship God, and Pharaoh increased the hardness of their bondage. Every time Moses went in to request to be released, Pharaoh refused because his heart was hardened. In the verse above, God told Moses that Pharaoh would not hearken to his request for one reason, and it was so that God’s wonders may be multiplied in the land of Egypt.

What we often don't realize is that God has a greater plan for our lives than the present, and this is why He must let our trials continue because He plans on showing His wonders through our lives. If God were to stop the hardness of life at your request instantly, we would often miss the greatest miracles that He has planned for our lives. You must understand that God has great plans for your life, but those great plans don't come without going through hard times. No, we don't want the hard times, but the hard times are what allow God to multiply His wonders in our lives.

Moreover, God said He wanted to multiply His wonders. In other words, God wants to do more than just one miracle through our lives. However, to multiply His wonders means He must multiply the hardness of what we are to go through. In other words, the more the heat of trials is turned up, the more miracles that God plans to do through our life. Let me share a couple thoughts about this great truth.

First, God has a plan for your life, but His plans will not always be easy. God’s plans for your life do include hard times, but those hard times are part of God loving you. You may wonder how God could be loving you through the hard times, but if you realized that those hard times are His plan to bless you, you will then realize He is loving you through the hard times.

Second, you must not quit before He multiplies His wonders in your life. Many have quit before the multiplied wonders because they got tired of going through the trials, but the multiplied wonders in our lives is worth every minute of the hard times we must endure. My friend, you must trust God and what He is doing in your life. Quitting is always an option, but it is an option that will rob you of God’s multiplied wonders He plans to do throughout your life. You certainly cannot see what God is doing, but just as He planned to do multiplied wonders for Israel, He has multiplied wonders for you if you will not quit.
