Discover and Become Everything God has Created You to Be!
The Lord said to Moses, “Why do you keep calling out to me for help? Tell the Israelites to move forward.” Exodus 14:15 cev
How often do we sit still crying out to God, asking Him to intervene and deliver us out of our current situation? In this portion of Scripture, God’s intervention and deliverance could not take place until the Israelites took the first step forward. Maybe in some of our current situations God is saying to some of us, “Stop asking, and start moving forward.”
Behind us is our past. If we move backward we risk the possibility of spiritually dying or being enslaved all over again.
In front of us are obstacles and challenges we have never faced before. Some of us are not sure which is scarier; our past which is trying to hunt us down and destroy us, or the seemingly impossible and insurmountable obstacles that stand in front of us.
For a long time now, many of us have been sitting still, crying out to God to help us, deliver us, and to move us forward into His promises and the greater blessings He has for our lives. There are unfulfilled promises lingering over our lives and we’re unsure of God’s timing and methods.
During this time of sitting still and waiting, I believe in the spiritual realm God is orchestrating deliverances, healings, promotions, and blessings that we currently do not yet see in the physical realm. We are sitting still, and even though we have been released to go forward, we still sit there paralyzed between our past and our future. We do not see God moving and so we do not know what to do or where to go. We don’t want to try and tackle the obstacles in front of us without His help and blessing, and we also do not want to try to overcome our past without His supernatural intervention either.
But like with the Israelites, in some of our lives and circumstances we must take the first steps away from our past and forward into our future before we will see the hand of God intervene in our situation.
Jesus said that we should pray that God’s will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. You see, God already has our future visualized and planned. He is simply waiting for us to walk in such a way that the way we are living aligns with what He is planning.
I believe many of us are living far below the level of potential we are capable of not because of something God is not doing, but because of something we are not doing. When we live disciplined lives and we intentionally take steps forward toward God’s destiny for us, I believe God rewards us by intervening with His supernatural blessing, deliverance, and promotion.
So what is it that we have been believing God for? How long have we been waiting? Has it been days, months, weeks, or years? What have we done while we have been in this season of waiting? Do we feel paralyzed? Do we truly believe God has called us to step forward? We must make up our minds and begin to march forward toward our obstacles and even our fears, because on the other side awaits our destiny.
