Go Forward

“And the LORD said unto Moses, Wherefore criest thou unto me? Speak unto the children of Israel, that they go forward” Exodus 14:15, KJV.

Don’t stay in the place of what I call the “In Between”. This is the place of indecision. It is the place we wrestle between two opinions. We are in between God’s promises and what we must leave behind, even our fears. Israel had the same dilemma, as they made their exodus from Egyptian slavery into the promise land (Exodus 14:9-12). While escaping, they arrived at the Red Sea and it appeared they couldn’t go any farther. Their enemy was behind them, the Red Sea in front of them and they know they can’t stay where they are. They faced a life-changing moment of decision at the Red Sea. We will all have our own Red Sea.

At this moment, God instructs Moses to use the rod in his hand He had already given him to split the Red Sea. In essence, God was telling Moses the way is already made. God’s way is not made by man’s hands, but His own, which we may not understand or see every time. Yet, God says go forward and then you will see what I have done. Your Red Sea will split before you, and what appeared impossible with man, is possible with God.

The thoughts of wondering of how will they respond, are you good enough, how will you get the resources, will it work, and you have no clue what I am doing will surely come. Yet in the face of it all, God’s response to you is as it was to Moses: Go forward.

Prayer: Father, I thank You and I know You are telling me to go forward with what You want me to do. I can’t stay here any longer. I will do what You’ve called me to do. Today I say yes, I will go forward! In Jesus’ name, Amen!

(Read Exodus 14:9-12, Philippians 3:13-14)
