Have you noticed that God’s instructions doesn’t always make sense? Here is one of such
‘Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.”‘ Exodus 14:13-14 NIV
It’s often unnatural for a nation to be afraid in times of war if she has the necessary man power and
weapon to successfully win the war without encountering any lost. But this was not the case at present in the lives of the Israelites, they had just been released from a 430year slavery and then this…six hundred of Pharaoh’s best chariots, along with other chariots of Egypt were after them. And all that God could say was “to be still”…stay still and be murdered in cold blood? This is a crazy idea!
‘Then the Lord said to Moses, ”
Why are you crying out to me?…”‘
No wonder they were scared to death, even Moses started crying (vs. 15 above)
At some point in our lives, we are faced with challenging situations, stuck in between dreadful Egptian chariots and the Red sea. We feel like giving up, or just like the Israelites-prefer to go back into Egypt(our familiar past, the land of oppression and slavery) where there are seemingly no new challenges…atleast we might not have all the freedom we desire but are sure to have daily food and sustenance.
At such times, God doesn’t want us crying or complaining(like the Israelites ), but desires that we lay hold of His word(the Staff) and speak over the situation, fully assured of His faithfulness(1 Thessalonians 5:24)
“…Tell the Israelites to move on.” Exodus 14:15
Are you having financial difficulties, health issues, stuck between undesirable situations, or considering giving up on your dreams and visions?
This was the case the Israelites were faced with, but we both know how the story ended…God told them to move on, He supernaturally made a way though the Sea and they walked on dried land. He is saying the same thing to you today my dear “to move on”
For He has said “…I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” Isaiah 43:19.
Get God’s word into your system my dear,exercise your faith, speak the word, move on and watch Him do the unusual in the life!
You are deeply loved, highly valued and always accepted by God!
Bless your darling heart,
Peace and love.
