God Working

I love Exodus 14:15. It says, “Then The Lord said to Moses,’why are you crying out to me? Tell the Israelites to move on.” The Lord spoke these words to Moses when the Israelites were about to cross the Red Sea. They had escaped the Egyptians and were following Moses to the land God had promised. But as they ran from Egypt they faced a couple of problems. The Red Sea was in front of them and Pharaoh and his army were approaching from the rear. When the Israelites thought there was no way out they began to cry and complain to Moses. Moses must have felt some panic as well, but he assured the people the The Lord would fight for them. That is when God speaks the words that are recorded in Exodus 14:15.
In my mind I hear God saying these words with some disgust. “What are you waiting on? Get moving!”
When talking about this verse Naomi Levy says, “Sometimes we need to be patient and answers will come. And sometimes we need to act and miracles will come.”
Today I begin a trip with three other women to minister to women in Ukraine and Vienna. We have prayed and planned for this trip for several months and the time has come for us to act.
God is working in wonderful and mighty ways in Eastern Europe and we are going to join Him in that work.
Over the next two weeks we will be posting on this blog the ways we see God working.
