“By the blast of your nostrils the water piled up. The surging waters stood firm like a wall; the deep waters congealed in the heart of the sea.” Exodus 15:8 NIV
While the Israelites thought of the Red sea as a dead end, God saw a piece of cake…a situation that wouldn’t even require Him to say a word, all He did was what He always does- breathe.
After successfully passing through the Red sea, Moses couldn’t but become a song writer-he actually composed a song for God, praising His holy name and mighty work (Exodus 15:1-18). I decree that very soon you would also have a song of praise!
My dear, when the Bible recorded that God rested on the seventh day of creation (Genesis 2:2), He actually did and every other thing that was going to happen/not happen was somewhat dependent on our appropriation/inappropriaton of His eternal word.
One would have thought that for “a very big problem” such as that of crossing the Red sea, God would have needed to have a round-table meeting with all the heavenly stakeholders inorder to profer a solution…that sounds logical right? But God is not a man, He is simply God! There is no such thing as a problem/very big problem with Him.
God did all that had to be done at creation, and He need not do any additonal thing as it were. May I repeat that, He need not do any additional thing! No wonder He told Moses to stop crying out to Him…He had done His part of the deal and all that Moses had to do was to stretch forth his staff(a picture of the word)
Anuoluwapo, “this sounds Old Testament-ish, what does the New Testament have to say about it- (God not having to do any additional thing as it were)?”
Okay, lets see the second Epistle of Peter.
“His divine power has given us every thing we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness” 2 Peter 1:3
Again, we see the scripture referring to God’s provision as something He had already accomplished for us- “His divine power has (not will)…”
My dear, God is not about to set up a committee to look into our situation/problem- His word is the solution! So whether it’s a mild headache or a cancer,just lay hold of the word, speak it forth…and watch it give way, bring that spiritual reality into physical manifestation!
