Have you ever faced something so terrifying that you froze in fear? Perhaps it was a terminal diagnosis, a bill too large to pay, notice you’re losing your home, your job, your child is missing? I have good news for you; God will not leave or forsake you, He will deliver you.
When Moses took the Israelites out of Egypt, they found themselves wedged between the Red Sea and the Egyptian army. No place to go, no way of escape, no hope. You talk about fear, they lashed out at Moses because that’s what people do. Even after all they’d seen in Egypt, they still didn’t believe God could or would deliver them.
Exodus 14 tells the story:10-12 As Pharaoh approached, the Israelites looked up and saw them—Egyptians! Coming at them!
They were totally afraid. They cried out in terror to God. They told Moses, “Weren’t the cemeteries large enough in Egypt so that you had to take us out here in the wilderness to die? What have you done to us, taking us out of Egypt? Back in Egypt didn’t we tell you this would happen? Didn’t we tell you, ‘Leave us alone here in Egypt—we’re better off as slaves in Egypt than as corpses in the wilderness.’”
13-14 Moses spoke to the people: “Don’t be afraid. Stand firm and watch God do his work of salvation for you today. Take a good look at the Egyptians today for you’re never going to see them again. God will fight the battle for you. And you? You keep your mouths shut!”
15-16 God said to Moses: “Why cry out to me? Speak to the Israelites. Order them to get moving. Hold your staff high and stretch your hand out over the sea: Split the sea! The Israelites will walk through the sea on dry ground.
So I say to you today, ‘Don’t be afraid. Stand firm on the promises of God and watch him do his work of salvation for you today. Take a good look at your problem, for you’re never going to see it again. God will fight the battle for you.’ What’s your part? Keep your fears and doubts away by speaking the Word of God over your problem. Don’t cry out to God to fix it, speak to your problem! Tell your diagnosis it’s met it’s match! The blood of Jesus set you free from the curse of disease. Let faith arise in your soul.
Jesus said, “Speak to the mountain!” if you don’t doubt in your heart but believe that the God who delivered the Israelites that day will this day deliver you, you will have whatsoever things you say. The problem is, what are you saying?
It’s time to rise up! Believe we must! We are remnant! Who else but us will be the Moses’s of our day? Speak to the Sea you face than stand still and see the salvation of your God.
