Do you think our thoughts are that powerful? It makes you think because our thoughts are connected to our hearts. Of course water doesn't have a heart but it was given a human element, emotion. With the emotion the water reacted much like us. It is believed what is in our hearts is often in our thoughts. If we have a hardened heart, non receptive, then our thoughts are usually negative and chaotic often insensitive to others and ourselves. If we have a soft heart, receptive then our thoughts are usually positive and optimistic with compassion for others and ourselves. If there is confusion in our hearts then our thoughts seem to have racing thoughts or irrationality.
God made Pharaoh in Exodus very hard and non receptive. Did God hardened the heart of the Pharaoh to gain glory from the Egyptians? Did He do it to prove a point to Moses? The Pharaoh's reactions to God was one of insensitivity, selfishness and non belief.
There is so much more that could be said but I would only be ranting. I think God wants us to think about what is in our thoughts and in our hearts. Do a self check ever so often. Take a good hard LOOK at both!!! What if..... you looked what would you see? What would you find?
