God Is Waiting On Our Faith
There are times in life when it just doesn’t make any sense to believe God’s promise. I’m sure when Moses and the Israelites were standing at the shores of the Red Sea and Pharaoh’s army was bearing down hard upon them it just didn’t make sense. And so the people panicked, started to complain, and wished they were back in Egypt.
Maybe you are facing a situation today that just doesn’t make any sense at all to trust in God’s promises. The enemy is pursuing you with all his might, and the circumstance in front of you looks grim. And so like the Israelites, you start to grumble, complain and even doubt God’s ability to rescue you.
That’s how it was for the Israelites and that’s how it can be for us when we allow circumstances to dictate our faith in the redemptive work of Jesus Christ.
Moses, the mighty man of God cries out to the people in Exodus 14:13-14, “And Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever. The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.” And this is all true and good, but God responds to Moses in a rather surprising way in verses 15-19, “Why do you cry to Me? Tell the children of Israel to go forward. 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. And I indeed will harden the hearts of the Egyptians, and they shall follow them. So I will gain honor over Pharaoh and over all his army, his chariots, and his horsemen. Then the Egyptians shall know that I am the Lord, when I have gained honor for Myself over Pharaoh, his chariots, and his horsemen.”
God wants more than to rescue us, He wants us to strengthen our faith in Him, trust Him, move forward, and not just talk faith, but to actually live faith. He told Moses to put his faith into action, tell the people to move forward and while doing so he was to lift up his rod, stretch out his hand over the sea and divide it for himself!
So often we want God to part the Red Sea that is in front of us that separates us from entering the promised land, the miracle that we so desperately need. We, like Moses cry out and say, “God part the waters for us!” And God is responds, “No, you put your faith in Me into action, and according to your faith it will happen.” God is waiting on our faith.
How do we do this?
- Strengthen our faith in the Word of God until we believe. If we need healing we study healing until we believe it.
- We pray in the Holy Spirit until we part that Red Sea that is hindering us from entering into the Promised Land. God’s realm of the supernatural where the miracles are waiting on us to be released.
- Speak the promises of God concerning our situation.
- Put our faith into action, don’t wait for God to do something, He already has at Calvary. Now, it is up to us to activate the miraculous by our faith in His Plan of Atonement.
If we will take these 4 steps and work them until that spiritual Red Sea opens up for us, then we will be able to walk right on through and into the Promised Land, the miracle we seek.
