Competing With the Works of God

Moses had Aaron throw down his rod before Pharaoh and it became a serpent. Pharaoh wanted to demonstrate that such was not all that great, for his magicians could do the same thing, “But Pharaoh also called the wise men and the sorcerers; so the magicians of Egypt, they also did in like manner with their enchantments” (Exodus 7:11).
Man often does not think much of the works of God, believing that they are ordinary, or that man can do the same or better works. If you keep reading you will find out what happens to the serpent-rods of Pharaoh’s magicians.
Man never wins in a competition with God.
