Praise your way into the miracle!
It’s easy to praise God when you’re already crossing the parted Red Sea but how about during the time when you were caught between life’s impossibilities? When you have the Red Sea in front of you and the furious Egyptians behind you?
Will you be like the Israelites who complained and murmured? “For it would have been better for us to serve the Egyptians than that we should die in the wilderness.” (Exodus 14:12) OR will you be like Moses who said, “DO NOT BE AFRAID. Stand still and SEE the salvation of the Lord, which He will accomplish for you TODAY!.” (Exodus 14:13) He further said, “The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.” (Exodus 14:14)
What will you choose? TO PRAISE to RAISE your hopes or TO COMPLAIN to make you REMAIN where you are? The choice is YOURS! But God said … “GO FORWARD!!!!” And the Lord caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all the night, and made the sea into dry land, and the waters were divided.
The Lord fights for you and me. The victories that He has done in our lives are meant to make us KNOW HIM more and more until doubts dissipate when we’re faced with challenges and CONFIDENCE rises up within us that He is indeed a God Who is WITH US, never leaving us nor forsaking us. He ALWAYS causes us to triumph in Christ!
Who we KNOW will always cause us to triumph in what we do! Who we KNOW will always triumph over what people will do to us! It matters WHO WE KNOW!!!
Who we KNOW, our Lord Jesus Christ, is the same YESTERDAY, TODAY and FOREVER. HE is WITH US, IN US and FOR US! Who then dare be against us?
Our God is WORTHY TO BE PRAISED! Our God is WORTHY OF IT ALL!
