The Red Sea Vs The Creation

Jonathan Cahn 90x115
by Jonathan Cahn

Some theologians struggle with believing the Red Sea parting. They’ve theorized that the sea consisted only of about a foot of water and the Israelites were able to just walk across it. But that begs the question “How did the Egyptian army drown in a foot of water? That, in itself, would have been a miracle! And which is harder, for God to create the universe with countless galaxies, stars, planets, oceans, and seas or making one of those seas part in two? After creation, parting a little sea is a piece of cake.

You may be dealing with a problem in your life. It may seem there’s no way out, no way to overcome and have victory, or no end in sight. Is your problem any greater than it was for the Hebrews? Your Red Sea isn’t too big for the God who created the galaxies. Trust the Lord and believe the miracles. Start proclaiming the victory. Then the hand of God will move again, the waters will split, and the horse and rider will be swept into the sea.

Today’s Mission – Today, proclaim the victory over your Red sea crossing. Give thanks before the water parts.

Exaltation of the Humble

 

A.W. Tozerby A.W. Tozer

For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted. Matthew 23:12

From Adam we inherit the instinct to meet our enemies head on, to try to win by direct assault, and it is only after many shocking failures that we learn that victories are not so won in the realm of the spiritual. The carnal approach usually does little more than to alienate the enemy still further from us and, worse than all, it puts us in a position where God cannot help us. The enemy never quite knows how to deal with a humble man; he is so used to dealing with proud, stubborn people that a meek man upsets his timetable. And furthermore, the man of true humility has God fighting on his side — who can win against God?

Strange as it may seem, we often win over our enemies only after we have first been soundly defeated by the Lord Himself. God often conquers our enemies by conquering us. He defeated Esau by defeating Jacob the night before on the bank of the Jabbok. The conquest of Esau took place in his brother Jacob. It is often so. When God foresees that we must meet a deadly opponent, he assures our victory by bringing us down in humbleness at His own feet. After that, everything is easy. We have put ourselves in a position where God can fight for us, and in a situation like that, the outcome is decided from eternity.
