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
2 Kings 7:3 And there were four leprous men at the entering in of the gate: and they said one to another, Why sit we here until we die? 7:4 If we say, We will enter into the city, then the famine is in the city, and we shall die there: and if we sit still here, we die also. Now therefore come, and let us fall unto the host of the Syrians: if they save us alive, we shall live; and if they kill us, we shall but die. 7:5 And they rose up in the twilight, to go unto the camp of the Syrians: and when they were come to the uttermost part of the camp of Syria, behold, there was no man there.
Go back and read the full story in your Bible; too much stuff to mine from the passage. However, I want to shine one of the treasures there, here. These guys had a decision to make; ‘stay and die’, ‘move and die’. Either way, death was inevitable. But if you observe closely, staying was a sure way of death while moving had a certain possibility of survival. So they decided to move.
What they feared, wasn’t even there!
Fear’s strategy is to paralyse you. Once you keep moving, you have won.
