1 Samuel 6

Why then do you harden your hearts as the Egyptians and Pharaoh hardened their hearts? When He did mighty things among them, did they not let the people go, that they might depart?

The pagan enemy gets it. Why don’t we? Why won’t we remember? Please soften our hearts and our necks that we would believe and yield, oh my God. You desire obedience, not sacrifice. 

… the ark of the God of Israel … You are their God, they are Your people. You are so strongly identified with them that their enemies, while acknowledging Your power and might, wanted nothing of You when they realized that You and Israel are a package deal. Lord God, I pray that my life would be as closely associated and bound to Your Name. That all would know that we are a package deal – only by Your extreme grace and provision to me.
