I said, “I am approaching a Red Sea moment in my life.”
Jamey then asked, “A Red Sea Moment? What is that?”
You may be approaching a Red Sea moment in your life as well.
In fact, 2014 may be a Red Sea year for you.
You are either going to drown or the sea is going to part.
Either way, whatever is your destiny is about to happen and it is right in front of you.
You can not go back or to the side.
Your only way of escape is to go forward yet that appears to be certain devastation.
I wish I could write as one with no experience at times.
That problems were not a part of my life and that fear was not something I battled like any other man.
However, tonight, at midnight, when 2013 becomes 2014, I will be standing at the edge of my own Red Sea.
And here is how I am approaching the last few hours of 2013.
“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 the Lord said to Moses, ‘Why do you cry to Me? Tell the children of Israel to go forward.'” Exodus 14:13-15
From time to time I collect nine word phrases.
Though not all in one phrase here are nine words that stick out to me from that passage.
“Do not be afraid. Stand still. Peace. Go forward.”
Note the progression of the words.
God tells them what not to do, then what to do and then what direction to take.
In your life and in my own life these words can also apply.
Do not be afraid. Stand still until you know the peace of God. Once you do and are confident of your direction…go forward.
