"And the Lord said unto Moses, Wherefore criest thou unto me? Speak unto the children of Israel, that they go forward." Exodus 14:15
IN JESUS TODAY!
The Egyptians were chasing the Israelites through the desert after the Israelites left Egypt to worship God, and when the Egyptians got close to them the Israelites began to cry out to the lord in fear, they were afraid because they had went as far as they could in their own strength, and now they could see the Egyptians hot on their trail, determined to either kill them, or make them slaves again, they could see them coming and were now backed up against the sea with no place to go, and so they stopped moving, stopped running, and began to be surrounded by trouble on every side! Have you come to your wits end? Have you gone as far as you can go, and still trouble is all around you? So what is left, what can you do now? Cry out to God! Can you imagine God telling you to go forward when forward looks to be a certain death? For the Israelites to go forward it meant for them to march into the sea! Some might have said, "ok, choose your death, how do you want to go? by Egyptian sword or by drowning in the sea?" Can you imagine God telling you to go forward when going forward has you looking at what seems to be impossible? Here comes the test! Will you obey God anyways? Stay and deal with trouble forever, or go forward and trust God to make a way of escape? Trust God to make that way where there seems to be no way! Where the way seems to defy all worldly wisdom and seems to be a certain death, will you trust and obey? Why cry about your troubles any longer! Don't let fear win!
Don't freeze and do nothing!
Trust God and go forward in faith! God will make a way, as it is written, "The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace." Exodus 14:14
