Moving forward can suddenly come to a dead end unless we exercise the faith that the Lord has given us.
And the Lord said to Moses, “Why do you cry to Me? Tell the children of Israel to go forward. But lift up your rod, and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it. And the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea.”
The people of Israel had seen many miracles by the hand of God. The Lord showed them that they were a chosen generation, as none of the plagues which came upon the Egyptians affected them.
They now had moved out of Egypt and were camping by the Red Sea and the armies of the Egyptians were fast approaching them. Hearing the noise of the Egyptian army and their horses coming towards them, the Israelites panicked and got very anxious.
In a moment, they forgot that they were a chosen generation and had the protection of the Lord, and cried in anxiety. The roaring of the sea on one side and the battle cry on the other side was too much for them.
The Lord can move the sea apart for us because we are His chosen people, but we need to be prepared to move forward in faith. We will always see the enemies roar, but that cannot swallow us. We will always walk on dry land because He goes before us. Therefore be prepared to give thanks for all that he has done for you in the past and move forward in confidence.
I come to You in Jesus’ name and thank You for all the miracles that You have done in my life. You have always opened doors when they have been shut and I believe that You will guide me in my way forward. Amen.
God bless you,
