Why Cry, initiate and go forward!!

Exodus 14:15-16
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 a seemingly failed end!!!
As Moses led the Israelites from Egypt nearing their destination, then came the angry Egyptians pursuing them, fear crept in, causing many to desire to backtrack into days of slavery. However God commands a moving forward, requiring Moses to lift the rod, and stretch his hand and part the sea and so a way was made.

In mans crying to God, He points you back to yourself, 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 shift, He will use a man and He places everything of Himself and avails it to that man, therefore, You have got what you need in your hands, if it means getting on your knees, get down but don’t cry, if it means giving a shout of praise like Joshua and team ( Joshua 6:1-27), hit the button and let the praise play, You have a mouth that speaks, hands that do, legs that move, initiate, speak to that situation, dance your feet to praise, raise your hands in worship, it only takes You for God to move. Until you act on God’s word, He won’t move for He has given us exceeding great promises that by them we may be partakers of His Divine nature ( 2 Peter 1:4)

2 Peter 1:4
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.

A widow was dread of her creditor enslaving her two sons for a failure to clear a debt, never did she realise that what she had was sufficient to get her through, to conquer the fear, the worry, the out cry, 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 cleared the debt from the miraculous overflow of oil ( 2 Kings 4:1-7)!!
While some are waiting for Miracle Money which indo believe in, a widow is doing business, the Miracle is in the work of Your hands!!

Peter disturbed 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. Fishing was Peter’s trade.

Matthew 17:24-27
²⁴And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute? ²⁵He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers? ²⁶Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free. ²⁷Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go thou to the sea, and cast an hook, and take up the fish that first cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of money: that take, and give unto them for me and thee.

The widow responded to fill, Peter responded to pick, it was just a trust put to obedience in partnership with God, where we lean not on our own understanding but on Him.

Proverbs 3:5-6
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, once we initiate, lean on and trust God to obedience, we ease our walk to victory, breaking down the strong walls of resistance.
God has placed right in your hands the solution, everything you need is right in your hands, you only need to initiate in partnership with Him.
Moses is instructed not to cry but to tell the whining Israelites to move forward, you have the ball in your hands, just move forward.
Ideally God was telling Moses: Hey , why are you crying yet the solution is in your hands, I have given it to you, get to it and use it….Moses is reminded to use what He has in his hand, the staff to split the red sea. Even when things are deemed to be impossible, God has given You the would be solution in that, you are the solution to your family, to that ministry, to that seemingly difficult situation, arise and shine.

Prophetic Utterance :

For in him I live and move and have My being, I am infused with His explosive power to conquer everything, for in Him I have all things partaining to life and godliness,
I trust God’s instructions and guidance.
