Exodus 7

God spoke to me today from Exodus 7:13 where God said, “Yet Pharaoh's heart became hard and he would not listen to them, just as the LORD had said,” and this is what I heard Him say:

The hard-hearted don’t listen to Me nor to My messenger.  Pharaoh was hard hearted.  I hardened his heart.  I performed through Moses, My servant, great miraculous signs and Pharaoh hardened his heart just as I said.  The first signs of hard-heartedness is doubt and the next is denial.  Pharaoh doubted Me when he said, “Who is the LORD…?  (Ex 5:2)  Pharaoh denied both Me and My messenger when he blatantly refused to listen to Me and My servants, Moses and Aaron.  Today check your heart.  Do you doubt Me?  Are you listening to Me?  You see, when you doubt Me and don’t listen to Me, you are just like Pharaoh, hard-hearted!   What a contrast to Moses who took off his sandals in My presence, because he was on holy ground.  What a contrast with Moses, who asked for My name to get to know Me.  What a contrast to Moses who was quite reluctant to do what I said, but did it.  Today determine to be like Moses and listen to me today.  Don’t be like Pharaoh, the hard-hearted who didn’t listen to Me.”
