Exodus 14:15 And the LORD said unto Moses, Wherefore criest thou unto me? speak unto the children of Israel, that they go forward:
These people had been saved from bondage and after that there were very many problems that were facing them. The message God had for them in spite of the numerous problems is GO FORWARD! It is not make-belief. They were not to behave as if there were no problems; the problems were really there. The Red sea was there, the Egyptian army was still galloping at their back yet, they were to GO FORWARD!
Because we are born again does not mean we will not have problems. The problems are to help us to GO FORWARD in our Christian lives.
We have just crossed over to the NEW YEAR. Though we are happy for all the things that the Lord has done for us, still we are to GO FORWARD. GOING FORWARD is where the victory lies.
Why were they to GO FORWARD? It is important to remember that the forces of the enemies cannot terminate our lives. The terrors of the enemies cannot paralyze us. The sea may rage, the lion may roar, but we shall finish our journey if Jesus is by our side. They had not reached their destination; Canaan was still far away.
GO FORWARD! Obedience brings blessings. When they obeyed by GOING FORWARD, the sea opened for them.
Water was what God used to help the Israelites to destroy their enemies. The problems in our lives can be used to destroy our enemies. The enemies were slaughtered and victory was theirs.
God is waiting for us. As we obey to GO FORWARD, the breakthrough will come, the enemies will be defeated, and the victory will be finalized.
Remember that the best is yet to come.
