Passover is a season of heightened spiritual activity. It starts on April 10th and ends on April 18th. This is a time of change, a time of transitions, and a time of miracles. God is doing some amazing things in our lives! I’ve been getting testimony after testimony, and I thank God for them. God is giving His people EVIDENCE!
Now is the season of contending for your prophetic promise and purpose. Make no mistake about this, you are in a FIGHT! For some of us, this fight is an internal struggle. For some it is a fight to reach a breakthrough. Or perhaps, there is a situation that is coming to a conclusion and victory. No matter what it is, do not worry… God is with you!
In Exodus 14 is the story of Moses leading the Hebrews to the Promised Land. Their path lead them to the edge of the Red Sea with Pharaoh and his chariots in pursuit after they were released from slavery.
Exodus 14:13-14 (NLT) But Moses told the people, “Don’t be afraid. Just stand still and watch the Lord rescue you today. The Egyptians you see today will never be seen again. 14 The Lord himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.”
The Hebrews were not fighters yet. They were no match for the Egyptian Army. It looked in the natural like they were facing a return to slavery or death. Yet, in the midst of this situation, the Word from the LORD was “Don’t be afraid. Just stand still and watch the Lord rescue you today. The Egyptians you see today will never be seen again. The Lord himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.“
I know you want to speak up. I know you want to defend yourself. I know you want to make a stand. Your natural mind may be dealing with fear, but let me give you a testimony… God is not only giving you sound council… He is God, and He will fight the battle on your behalf! How terrifying for your enemies!
In these times when God has given me instructions to remain still and silent, it is amazing to see God work through what others would call “coincidence” or “chance”. But when you are a person of faith, you know there is no such thing as “coincidence” or “chance”. As a person of faith, one thing you need to keep in mind as well is that if you do intervene on your own behalf when you have instructions from God to be still, you cancel your miracle through an act of unbelief.
You may be saying to yourself, “But David… if you knew the situation I am facing right now…” And you are right, I do not know the details of what you are facing. But one thing that I do know about is how to let go, and let God!
Let me be frank with you…In the natural, I shouldn’t have a ministry today. I should be in poverty, on drugs, or in jail… or all three. That is where my life was headed early on. I wasn’t “ministry material.” But I loved God and I became an expert in just one thing… trusting God.
I learned to hold His hand and let Him guide me. I could give you testimony after testimony about how God delivered me out of situations and circumstance. But its not about me… God is no respecter of persons.
If God did it for me, He will do it for you.
Exodus 14 ends with this:
“When the people of Israel saw the mighty power that the Lord had unleashed against the Egyptians, they were filled with awe before him. They put their faith in the Lord and in his servant Moses.”
This is what letting go and letting God leads to… awe-inspired VICTORY at no cost and an even greater faith. No wonder the enemy is fighting you!
The greater the battle, the greater the spoils. Stay the course! Keep your faith! Stand and see the victory of the LORD come to pass in your life.
