Faith for the Impossible

David Wilkersonby David Wilkerson

Moses led the children of Israel out of Egypt and when they came to the Red Sea, the leader held his staff out over the water and throughout the night a strong east wind divided the sea. The water stood up in a wall on each side so that the Israelites could cross over on dry land. When the Egyptians pursued, the waters overwhelmed them and drowned them all. Read the account in Exodus 14:15-31.

Moses and the children of Israel rejoiced in the Lord, with his sister Miriam leading the dancing (see 15:20-21). But even after this tremendous victory, it wasn’t long before adverse circumstances caused the people to complain against Moses and Aaron. Sadly, most of these people who had endured the plagues of Egypt and praised God for deliverance at the Red Sea did not make it to the Promised Land. Instead, they perished in a miserable wilderness — all because of doubt.

Beloved, our Promised Land today is Jesus Christ alive in us. He is our inheritance! As we rest in his faithfulness, we enjoy his presence. God never intended for us to become stuck in a wilderness of emptiness and drought. Through his Son, he has provided for us abundant life — a life free from worry and anxiety if we put our trust in him.

Right now you might be in the fight of your life. The enemy is coming at you on all sides and even though you know you have a mighty God on your side, all you can see is the battle in front of you. You’re asking God, “Why did you bring me into this mess? I can’t make it.

The Word assures you that you can enter into a restful place in Christ’s fullness. “Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water” (Hebrews 10:22). God wants you to come into a place of peace. He wants you to truly rest in his power and ability to deliver you from all snares, trials and temptations — if you will trust him!

The Withdrawing Of The Cloud

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

Have there been times in your life and walk when you just didn’t feel the presence of God; when you didn’t feel the presence of His love, His favor, or His blessings? Maybe you felt He was distant or withdrawing from you. But in those times of life, there’s a blessing you may be missing.

If you were in the wilderness with Moses and witnessed the presence of God withdrawing from the camp, it wouldn’t have been a bad thing but a good thing. The withdrawing of His presence was a sign that He was calling His people to get moving. It was the sign that it was time to move forward in the journey to the Promised Land. In the same way, if you’re in God’s will and you don’t feel Him as close as you did, it’s a sign that God wants you to move forward, to not live by feelings, but to seek after Him. It’s a sign He wants you to make a change in your routine, to press forward to find more of Him and to enter higher ground. So don’t get down – instead, get up and follow the cloud!

Today’s Mission – Today, take time to go over all the blessings God has given you and take inventory on how rich you truly are.
