“The Lord shall fight for you and ye shall hold your peace. And the Lord said unto Moses, wherefore criest thou unto me? Speak unto the children of Israel that they go forward: but lift thou up thy rod and stretch out thine over the sea and divide it: and the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea”-Exodus 14:14-16
The believer who would conquer by faith must not draw back. God fights for those whose faith is on the line. Going through the bible text quoted above, reading it from the verse 10 of that chapter, you would discover that the children of Isaac lost heart when they saw the approaching armies of the Egyptians in hot pursuit of them and the red sea on their pathway. They immediately forgot all the mighty works that God did through the hands of the Man of God, Moses their leader. They began to blame Moses for even coming to deliver them from their bondage in the Egypt that had lasted for more than 400 years.
Beloved, our God is the Faith Master, you must learn from him if you have to go from victory to victory in your faith walk. In the midst of the fears and uncertainty in the hearts of the people, Moses who was operating from the realm of faith spoke in verse13 saying; fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he shall show to you today, for the Egyptians whom ye have seen today, ye shall se them again no more for ever! Remember that the years Moses spent in the wilderness was to seek to know the ways or principles of God. For he made known his ways unto Moses, his acts to the children of Israel (Ps 103:7). Faith speaks or declares what they expect to happen next!
You can’t be mindful of this ugly situation and expect to enter the new and the better, “And if truly they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned. But now they desire a better country….” The power of faith can change any situation. Faith imparts strength to do the extraordinary; “for through faith Sarah herself received strength to conceive seed (see Heb.11:11). Sarah physically was not a young maiden; she was already in menopause but she received the needed strength to carry a baby because her faith was active.
The faith Moses demonstrated at that point saved that nation; and God spoke up in Verse 15. God was surprised that Moses was praying to him; And the faith God spoke as if the red sea was not even there; he said to Moses ‘tell this people to go on forward!”
Friend, the only way faith knows to go is forward! You may be experiencing sickness in your body, God expects you to go on forward to healing! You may have suffered loses, go on forward to your restoration. No red sea can stop you with God standing by you. God gave Moses an instruction that would sound absurd to many. He said to him; “you stretch forth your hand over that sea and divide it!”
Friend what God told Moses was recorded for us to hear and do the same! He has put born again Christians here to effect the change that pleases heaven. Jesus did not leave his blood here on the earth for nothing; that blood is to connect you to the same source of power which men like Moses had access to: the power of the Holy Ghost. God knows you can divide that red sea standing on your way and walk through on dry ground. Your red sea symbolises that seemingly insurmountable obstacle that may be on your way to your next level. When you face it with a heart full of the faith of God in Christ Jesus, the sea will see the great God behind you and flee! The rod in your hand is the word of faith in your mouth! Declare what you want to see happen for you. I can hear someone somewhere reading this declare boldly from their sick bed saying “In less than seven days I shall be out of this bed!” I join my faith with your own and say “so shall it be in the mighty name of Jesus. Expect to see it happen for you; leave the how for God to handle.
