¹⁵And the LORD said unto Moses, Wherefore criest thou unto me? speak unto the children of Israel, that they go forward:¹⁶But lift thou up thy rod, and stretch out thine hand over the sea, and divide it: and the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea.
Have you ever walked a walk that seemed to be a road to success but then meet an end that seems to be a booby trap.
As Moses led the Israelites from Egypt nearing their destination, the angry Egyptians came in great pursuit, fear gripped them, a cry for an up roar they made and regrettably wanted to go back to the slavery that bound them, however God tells them to stop crying to Him and move forward, requiring Moses to lift the rod, and stretch his hand and part the sea and so a way was made.
We are supposed to cry to Him but then He points you back to ourselves, He is the answer but you are that being that carries the answer, He is the solution but You are His solution, when God wants things to move, He will use a man and He places Himself in that man point us to being what we need. If it means getting on your knees, get down but don’t cry, if it means giving a shout of praise like Joshua and his team ( Joshua:6:1-27), let the praise play, You have a mouth that speaks, hands that do ,legs that move, initiate, speak to that situation, move your feet, raise your hands in worship, it only takes You for God to move. Until you act on God’s word.
2 Peter 1:4
Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
A widow in despair with fear of her creditor enslaving her two sons for a failure to settle a debt, never did she realise that what she had was sufficient enough to get her through, to conquer the fear, the worry until Elisha asked : What do you have in your house? Nothing except a small jar, she replied…and Elisha instructed her to borrow vessels and fill them with the oil and when she did, she sold and settled the debt from the miraculous overflow of oil ( 2 Kings 4:1-7)
Peter pressed by the tax collectors is asked whether Jesus pays tax, Jesus directs him to get a hook and take the first fish caught, open it’s mouth and get a coin from the fish to clear that tax, and exactly as He had told Him, a coin was obtained And the tax cleared.(Matthew 17:24-27)
The widow responded to fill, Peter responded too, it was just a trust put to obedience in partnership and fellowship with God.
⁵Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. ⁶In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
The secret to your victory is your trust and obedience and use of that which He has availed in your hands, for Moses it was a rod, for the widow, it was the oil, for Peter , the fish, even when things seem an impossibility, we ease our walk in victory breaking away from the strong walls of resistance being our ignorance of His ways.
God has placed right in your hands the solution, everything you need is right in your hands , you only need to initiate in partnership and fellowship with Him.
Moses is instructed not to cry but to tell the whinning Israelites to move forward.
In God, I am moving Dunamis (miraculous power), implode from within by the Spirit of God with visible effects.
I’m the very potency of God on earth, manifesting great grace walk in insurmountable victories.
2 Peter 1:3-4
²According as his divine power hath He given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: ⁴Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
