This month we’ve been looking at Moses and the children of Israel, and the huge challenge they faced at the Red Sea. After the Lord removed His presence from in front of them and moved it to their rear to protect them, the Bible says in Exodus 14:21-22, New International Version, “Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and all that night the Lord drove the sea back with a strong east wind and turned it into dry land. The waters were divided, and the Israelites went through the sea on dry ground, with a wall of water on their right and on their left.” After they left Egypt, God had an angel literally paving the way for His people. But when they reached the Red Sea, the difficult part of the journey, the angel switched positions and moved behind them. It’s important to believe that while God is always with you, He will sometimes carry you to a certain point to protect you. Then, He will leave things up to you. He will say to you, “I’ve carried you this far, now it’s up to you. I want you to act on what I’ve told you. I’m not going to speak to the problem. I’ve empowered and equipped you to do that.” Just as Moses understood the power he had in his hands, God looks to us to recognize the power He has given us to speak His Word. Jesus said, “I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you’ve received it, it will be yours,” (Mark 11:24, New Living Translation).
