Exodus 14:13-16

The Story
The children of Israel were living the land of Egypt to a place where they can worship their God, when they came across the red sea in front of them.  Meanwhile the King of Egypt (Pharaoh) has changed his mind about letting them go and started pursuit to get them back.  Imagine if you can the situation of the Israelites, the king and his armies behind them and the red sea in front of them they started doing what we all do murmuring, complaining, crying etc to their leader Moses…you can read the rest of the story.  But this is what the Lord said;

Exodus 14: 15: “….to Moses, Why do you cry unto Me?  Speak unto the children of Israel that they go forward:”

As I thought about this verse, the Holy Spirit revealed to me how these words can be used during a difficult time.

Are you going through a difficult time?  If you are, this is the word of the Lord to you.  Stop complaining and stop crying.  It is easy to give excuses and blame others and this has to stop before you can move forward through this time.  How?

The Instruction
Verse 16 gives you direction on how to move past this difficult time: For Moses God said to him;
“But lift thou up thy rod and stretch out thine hand over the sea, and divide it: and the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea.”

Let’s break it down for us in today:
1) But lift thou up thy rod – what is in your hand that He has given you to use?  For Moses it was a rod what’s in yours?
2) ..and stretch out thine hand over the sea and divide it–  use it as He has instructed. What you have in your hands has an instruction with it. What is it and use it as instructed.
3) ..and the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea – the result is you will overcome your difficult time and problem and walk through it and the victory will be yours.

A wise man once said to me “Every completed instruction births a miracle of season.”
