Exodus 14:15 (NIV)
And the Lord said to Moses, tell the children of Israel to go forward.
There are many Christians today who are poor or stagnated not because of any threat or restriction. Instead of trusting in God and taking decisions that will lead them into God’s glory, they are over reliant on pastors and prophets to the extent they have no self-decision making capabilities. While I have nothing against people seeking guidance and direction from the shepherds over them, stop crying to God when you should be praising and thanking him for his blessings. Rise and go forward, walk through the red sea, it’s the quickest way and remember, Canaan awaits!
Dear Lord, let the eyes of our understanding be enlightened so we will know when to move and not become stagnant waiting on directions. Cause honest men to lead us on the right path. In Jesus' name I pray.
