“I will take you as My people, and I will be your God. Then you shall know that I am the LORD your God who brings you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians. And I will bring you into the land which I swore to give to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; and I will give it to you as a heritage: I am the LORD” (Exodus 6:7-8, NKJV)
Exodus 2:1-4:31 shares the story of Moses. He started life running from death. His mother saved his life by floating him down a river where he fell into the hands of the Pharaoh’s daughter. Born into slavery, raised as royalty, then exiled into hiding – Moses’ life was anything but steady. Then, one day he found out he was chosen by God to lead the Israelites to freedom. At first, Moses didn’t think he was able, but he quickly learned to trust and obey God in every circumstance and moment. That is when he saw God work miracles through him for His people.
God used Moses to bring about the release of the captive children of God. Then God used Moses to part the Red Sea and lead His people to freedom from the slavery of the Egyptians. God used Moses to perform supernatural miracles to bring water from rocks for the people to drink, to deliver the law that would protect God’s people from the curse that surrounded them on the earth, and finally, to raise up Joshua, who would finish the path to freedom for the people of God.
It was not all easy for Moses. He went through a lot to carry out God’s purpose for his life and the lives of the people of Israel—God’s chosen nation. He didn’t do everything perfectly, and he didn’t always rejoice in his role for God, but he stayed the course. In a way, Moses led all of God’s people to redemption. When Moses led the people of Israel to freedom, that meant that God was able to continue His redemptive plan for all of mankind in the earth.
Walk In the Supernatural
“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).
Live the Word
God is the Good Shepherd and you are His sheep (John 10:2-5). You can distinguish between His voice and the voice of a stranger…all it takes is time and discipline to listen to His voice. Trust Him today. He will NOT lead you astray!
Speak the Word
I hear the voice of the Good Shepherd, and I obey it. The voice of a stranger I will not follow. I can trust where He leads. No matter what it looks like, He ALWAYS has a way of escape for me. And I trust Him. Today, tomorrow and always!
Scripture Study: Exodus 14; John 10:5, 27
Moses didn’t have the power to divide the Red Sea. But he did have the power to stretch his rod out over it. And when he did that in obedience to the Lord’s command, the Holy Spirit did the rest. It will be the same way with you. When you start doing your part, the Holy Spirit will do His, and supernatural things will start happening around you.
What is your part?
- Feed on the Word.
- Pray in the spirit.
- Listen to what the Spirit of God says to you.
- Obey God—quickly and completely.
As you do those things, as you begin to move as God impresses you to move and take your direction from Him, you’ll flow in the supernatural as naturally as a bird flies in the air. You’ll just trust the Lord and stretch out your rod…and watch the miracles start to happen all around you.
