All throughout the book of Exodus, Moses is constantly forced to contend with the sin of obstinacy among the Israelites (see Exodus 34:8-9). In 19:9, Paul had to deal with the same thing while he was preaching in the synagogue in Ephesus.
Look up the word "obstinate" in the dictionary or Google it. Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal to you areas where your obstinance can be a source of discouragement within your family, workplace/school, and church.
