Exodus _14:15 And the LORD said unto Moses, why are you calling out to me? speak unto the children of Israel, that they go forward: 14:16 But 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._
When we read with old ‘eyes’, we continually read what we like to read and not what we should be reading. Come everyday with ‘new pair of eyes’; renew your mind! Review the text again ‘…why are you CALLING OUT to me’ (that’s exactly how the original reads). The next thing he says is ‘tell them to move, you use your rod and divide the sea’
See, the father is inside you stop calling out (he is not there) because to call out, we must stop moving. Keep moving and things will change cos things will respond to him; cos he is inside you
Exodus 4:8 And it shall come to pass, if they will not believe thee, neither hearken to the voice of the first sign, that they will believe the voice of the latter sign. 4:9 And it shall come to pass, if they will not believe also these two signs, neither hearken unto thy voice, that thou shalt take of the water of the river, and pour it upon the dry land: and the water which thou takest out of the river shall become blood upon the dry land. 4:10 And Moses said unto the LORD, O my LORD, I am not eloquent, neither heretofore, nor since thou hast spoken unto thy servant: but I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue.
See something here. God tells Moses that one way or another, the people will believe him. He (God) has given Him (Moses) all he needs. He says if you try the first and they don’t agree, try another. Moses says ‘but I can’t talk’; he is focusing on what he does not have!
But there is another subtle thing I want to bring to your attention; the main thing God has given to Moses, is persistence. Notice ‘if they don’t accept one, try the other’; God makes it appear that what he needs to convince the people is persistence – a persistence at doing what he has to do!
What do you need to get done? Focus on what you have, and keep using them
