Ex 14:1-4  “Now the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: “Speak to the children of Israel, that they turn and camp before Pi Hahiroth, between Migdol and the sea, opposite Baal Zephon; you shall camp before it by the sea. For Pharaoh will say of the children of Israel, ‘They are bewildered by the land; the wilderness has closed them in.’ Then I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, so that he will pursue them; and I will gain honor over Pharaoh and over all his army, that the Egyptians may know that I am the Lord.” And they did so.”

God might have placed you in a situation, where your relationship or some type of difficult situations caves you in. He might have placed you in such way that you see red sea like barrier in front of you, dry hot desert on the sides and Egypt at your back. You don’t want to go back to Egypt, because God said so. What should you do? The enemy is waiting to attack you if he gets a chance, but surely, he is threatening you that he is going to come near you and you will be finished. What should you do? Wait for the east wind to do its work. In this instance, God’s will for the Israelites is to ‘Go Forward’ but there is no place to go forward. They have to wait for the east wind to finish it course to go forward; the east wind brought dryness upon the land. That wind of dryness dried the red sea to make way for the children of Israelites. Likewise, when you are is difficult situation, if the will of God is not attacking the enemy but to wait in faith, then God will use the dryness in your situation to a blessing if you just wait for the east wind to finish it course in faith. The work of God will be manifested in you and through you so that you will be soon freed from the difficult place in which God placed you, and your enemy will be defeated ultimately. God will gain honor in all these things. You are just an instrument to gain honor for His name. Would you wait to fulfill what God has purposed in His heart or you will quit from the difficult situation according to your reasoning and craftiness? Would you lament and depressed about your situation or you will wait in faith and patience to go forward to inherit His blessings? The choice is yours. God has given you wisdom. So choose wisely. May God give you peace in any situation that you face today and help you to withstand the pressure in faith. Amen.
