Beautiful words stir my heart. I will recite a lovely poem about the king, for my tongue is like the pen of a skillful poet.
When God brought Israelites out of Egypt, the last step to be free from the pursuing Egyptian armies they had to cross the Red Sea which divided by the Lord. Definitely was not an easy thing to do. The sea divided wasn’t a natural occurrence that can be found every day. What if in the along the way suddenly the seawater reunited and swallow them alive?? But the circumstances “force” them stride. There was no choice but to believe in God and immediately walked across the ocean with a wall of water on either side of them, or remain silent on the spot and killed by the armies of Egypt that came closer.
When the situation is fine and all still be overcome, human unwittingly rely on themselves, their wealth, and their connections. It is easier for a human being totally obedient and relies on God when in a pressed situation and there is no way at all. God is good Father who wants His children always living in victory and abundance. But there is time God allow problem happens and use the problem to “Force” (Please read as helping and drill) us in order we become a person according His will and declare His Glory
Have you ever had a condition where everything suddenly becomes clogged? A required completion seems impossible become a reality. What to expect too far from what can be reached in whatever way. Every effort has been conducted. No humans were able to help and it is certainly not being able to face it all alone. Immediately come up negative thoughts and the entire worst possible things that will happen. Fear ambushed and makes all things worse. Is there any hope??
I lift up my eyes to the mountains—where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth. (Psalm 121:1-2 NIV)
When there is no way around us, there is always a way above. There is a God who is willing and able to help. “I am the LORD, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me? (Jeremiah 32:27 NIV) God is not being asking, but God insists that nothing will be impossible for Him!
Every time God brings His children to the higher level, always faced to the impossible situation which is need the action of faith. That is the time to trust and comply fully with the Lord. Believe in the heart of God, not in His deed hands. Many people are fascinated with the God’s work, which are His miracles and blessings. That is being pursued by many people. But when faced an uncomfortable situation which demands obedience without compromise, many people begin to doubt to God. Questioned His decision, His love, His justice, and even questioned His mightiness. People are easier to believe if they see the proof. But the truly faith is believe though not seeing. Without too many asking and thinking. Just by God’s words, believe and do it soon! For if God has spoken then the miracle will happen.
I will go before you and will level the mountains
I will break down gates of bronze and cut through bars of iron. (Isaiah 45:2 NIV)
So what if we have been sincerely hoping, pray, and does everything we can do to obey the God’s word but it seems there is no change? Our circumstances remain slumped and God seems to do nothing and keep silent? The answer is: BELIEVE! Believe that God is good and loves us, believe that God is able and surely help, believe that God will not disappointed and shaming those who put hope and waiting for Him, believe that God is never be late. And indeed we have no other choice! If do not believe in God, to whom we will believe?! If not waiting for God, to whom we will wait?! Only God is our way out. Hold the faith and our hope until the last point!
