CROSSING THE IMPOSSIBLE
"And Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD....
The LORD will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace....lift up your rod, and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it. And the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea."
What impossible situation are you facing right now?
Blindsided by a devastated relationship? Financial troubles you can't dig yourself out of? Shattered dreams and a shattered heart? A medical diagnosis leaving little hope?
Whatever it is that you face that appears utterly impossible to you is no surprise to God and He has a plan!
That's right, God is in control and HE has a plan of action already prepared to RESCUE you! The word of God said "THE LORD WILL FIGHT FOR YOU!" Do you believe Him? Do you trust Him that He will in fact show up so that you won't die in your wilderness? Don't look back and fear what terrible consequence awaits you if God doesn't show up. Look straight ahead, lift up your eyes and behold His confident, loving gaze and then cry out.
Moses lifted up His staff which representing God's presence and power. We too have the Presence of God, yet we have GOD IN US, not merely with us. Think about that. God IN you! Activate that mighty power through faith. Lift up your voice and speak the Word of the LORD over yourself and your situation. And then what?
What if you have done all you know to do and those turbulent whirling uncrossable waters still face you? "Do not be afraid, STAND STILL and SEE the salvation of the LORD." Having done all, STAND. Stand and wait for His rescue. Stand STILL; Don't try to fix a situation you can't hold a candle to. Don't try to scheme and strive and muster up every strategy of man (Like trying to build a raft or swim across the sea). You'll only exhaust yourself and feel utterly defeated. Just wait in confident trust that your God sees you, hears you, and is about to RESCUE you. God promises to always provide a way of escape when we are tempted. Are you tempted to give up, throw in the towel, file bankruptcy, file for divorce...??? CRY out to God. Lift up your Staff (The Spoken Word) and then...Stand still, resting in His provision that is about to show up strong on your behalf!
This word comes right out of my belly, like living waters to a parched ground. I received disturbing news recently from our bank which could jeopardize "Remember ME" Jewelry. What is impossible to us is NOTHING for God! BELOVED! TRUST! God already has a plan of rescue! I've cried out, lifted up the Word of my Faithful and True and now I STAND STILL and wait! Every fear has evaporated in the weightiness of God's Love for me. Now as I wait, my heart is full of hope and expectation! I anticipate with songs of deliverance already in my heart and on my tongue. Taste and see that the Lord is GOOD! OH BELOVED TRUST HIM!
"He who promised you is FAITHFUL!" Hebrews 10:23 STAYED TUNED FOR THE TESTIMONY AHEAD!!
