Crossing The Red Sea

May 4, 2024

 And the Lord said to Moses, “Why do you cry to Me? Tell the children of Israel to go forward. But lift up your rod, and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it. And the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea.

 - Exodus 14:15-16 (NKJV) 

In Exodus 14:15-16, we witness a significant event where God instructs Moses to lift his rod and divide the Red Sea, allowing the Israelites to cross on dry ground. This miraculous demonstration of God's power serves as a profound reminder of His ability to amplify our efforts beyond what we could imagine. 

Often, when faced with daunting challenges or seemingly impossible situations, we may feel inadequate or unsure of how to proceed. Yet, just as God empowered Moses to part the sea with a simple action, He can amplify our efforts and bring about extraordinary outcomes. 

Similarly, in Exodus 15:23-25, we encounter another instance where God intervenes to transform bitter waters into sweet. By showing Moses a tree to cast into the water, God demonstrates His ability to provide solutions to seemingly insurmountable problems. This passage reminds us that even our smallest efforts, when guided by God's wisdom, can lead to remarkable results. 

...just as God empowered Moses to part the sea with a simple action, He can amplify our efforts and bring about extraordinary outcomes. 

Furthermore, in 2 Kings 7:3-4, we read about four lepers who, in the midst of famine and desperation, take a step of faith and approach the enemy camp. God amplifies their steps, causing the enemy to flee in fear, and providing abundant provision for the starving city. 

These passages serve as powerful reminders that God can amplify our efforts and turn the ordinary into the extraordinary. He can take our small acts of obedience and faith and multiply them for His glory and our benefit. 

So, as we lift our hands in surrender and openness to God's leading, let us trust that He will amplify our efforts and guide us to solutions beyond our own understanding. May we be encouraged to take bold steps of faith, knowing that God is with us, empowering us to accomplish His purposes in our lives and in the world. 

Song of Worship  

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders 

Let me walk upon the waters

Wherever You would call me 

Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander

And my faith will be made stronger 

In the presence of my Savior

Prayer -  Lord, help us to trust in Your ability to amplify our efforts and lead us to victory in every situation. Give us the courage to step out in faith, knowing that You are with us, guiding and empowering us every step of the way in Jesus' name, we pray. Amen.
