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)
We would recall, that God asked the Prophet Ezekiel a vital question which in my opinion was meant to engage his mind (Analysis) but much more stir up His Spirit man for the next line of action.
As we draw the curtain on our “GO FORWARD” series, it it pertinent, that we understand that the children of Israel were not dummies to have been scared by the sight of the Red Sea before them and the host of Pharaoh’s elite squad behind them.
We would also recall, that in this kingdom, we are not moved by what we see nor by what we hear, but we are moved by the word of God.
Hence, we must come to a point in our lives where we don’t get drowned by several analysis which most often than not are true of the situation by the way, BUT we must awake to ONE VOICE; the “voice of God” right in the midst of the realities arrived at by analysis and simply “GO FORWARD”.
Truth remains that no matter the discovery we arrive at after analyzing situations and angles we find ourselves in life, ONLY our obedience to the NEVER logical, non-popular response or instruction drawn from God has the capacity to help us TRUELY ADVANCE TRIUMPHANTLY in the journey of life.
These nuggets I believe should come in handy:
God gave us a mind so we can think but He also gave us HIS SPIRIT so we can be led by Him into our promise land.
Analysis from logical reasoning paralyzes prophecies, but viewing and acting by faith is what gives prophecies the capacity to deliver.
Wisdom helps us to strike a balance between when to analyze situations and when to simply act In obedience.
Although without analysis the consequences of our actions or in-actions may not be discovered. Choosing to ACT IN FAITH regardless is what makes the difference.
Inventions are birthed from intentionality which can be summed up to mean TAKING FAITH TRIGGERED GIANT STEPS.
In conclusion, if doubtless we must “GO FORWARD”, then it’s time we vacate our seat in the talk shop and enter into the workshop powered by ABSOLUTE FAITH IN GOD AND HIS WORD.
