We lose heart when we forget. Fear remains when we don't know the One who goes before us. So, where does courage come from? Keep Reading...
Dear Jesus, remind me who You are through Your Word. I want to know You. Thank you, Jesus, Amen.
Exodus 14:15 - Then the Lord said to Moses, “Why are you crying out to me? Tell the Israelites to move on.
With Pharaoh's army behind and the Red Sea in front, God tells Israel to move on. Which way should they go? Why, into the Red Sea, of course. One might almost think God was being cruel here. He says to Moses, “Why are you crying? Move on."
Only God could say these words with complete confidence and kindness. If your best friend said this to you in your hour of need, it would most definitely be heartless. So how could a good God say this to the scared Israelites?
God is saying this to the Israelites. Did you not witness the most unbelievable events of the recent days? Have you forgotten so quickly the power of God displayed in the ten plagues? Do you remember how you and your family were spared during this whole time? I am able. I am capable, and I care.
God says, "I will not let you down, though the way forward seems impossible. I have proven my love to you over and over. So, when I say, ‘Move on into the Red Sea,’ that means I will do another miracle before your eyes. For I have not brought you here to kill you. I love you and will save you."
Do you know God? How have you seen his power at work in your life? Now, why would he suddenly fail you? And yet you wonder…
The Father gave you his best in Jesus. Why would he fail you now? Romans 8:32 says, "He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all–how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?" It's time to move forward, even when the way forward seems impossible. The Great I Am is with you.
Do you recognize any unbelief in your mind regarding the power AND care of God in your life? Repent of unbelief and begin reminding yourself of his goodness. Tell God that you will move forward in faith today.
