“Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and all that night the Lord drove the sea back with a strong east wind and turned it into dry land. The waters were divided..”
Probably one of the most well-known miracles that God performed in the old testament, or in the bible for that matter is the splitting of the Red Sea. This was when God was using Moses to lead His people out of Egypt. It’s funny because I have referenced this particular miracle a few times before and have heard others use it as well. One might say, “well if God can split the Red Sea then He can do this”, or whatever the case might be. I think that it sometimes can get exaggerated or used sarcastically, but if you think about it, it’s actually true. Same goes with the mustard seed. “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can tell this mountain to move from there to there, and it will move.” Matthew 17:20
God still works miracles! He can still make the impossible, possible.
How many times in our lives do we reference these faith verses and yet we lack the actual faith? Just FYI…typing that question hurt me a whole lot more than it hurt you reading it! It’s real easy for us to quote these verses and stories of faith, but putting that faith into practice is not always easy. I will be the first to admit that I am completely guilty of this form of talking the talk versus walking the walk! It is in our human nature to have control over our lives. Not being able to control something that I feel like I should be able to control is excruciatingly painful for me. And I know many of you can agree! However, that is basically what our walk with Jesus is about. It is about taking those steps of faith. It’s about getting on our knees and asking Him to guide our steps and for us to earnestly follow Him toward our purpose. Those steps are not always easy and sometimes we may not even know what the next step is, but as long as we are following Him, our steps will not go in vain. There are always questions running through our minds if we are doing the right thing or not. Am I where I’m supposed to be? Am I doing what God has called me to do? What if He calls me to do something I don’t want to do? I’m sorry, but if you are a believer and want to do the work that God has called you to do, whatever He asks, will be worth it! As difficult as taking that step will be, I can assure you that God will NOT let you down!!
I’ve always felt bad for Moses when I read his story. Bless the guy’s heart. He did not want to do what God had called him to do, did he? He doubted himself and didn’t think he was qualified to lead the Israelites out of Egypt. Which is something that I feel most of us can relate to. I have been there many times. Not feeling good enough. That is where God steps in! Remember, when you are at your weakest, His strength overwhelms! You are not meant to carry the weight of this world on your shoulders. That is what He is there for. Whatever your situation could be, God is saying, “let Me have it, let Me take care of that for you.” He wants you to rely on Him in all things!
Like I said earlier, God still works miracles. And what could be a miracle to you might not be a miracle to someone else, but it doesn’t matter! All He says is to trust Him, to have faith in Him, and believe that He can and will make a way!
Happy Monday, Readers!
Thank you all for your support! I can’t tell you what it means to me! 🙂
