I was reading about a very familiar story in the bible last night and it hit me. . .
Moses, children of Israel, trapped by the Red Sea as Pharoah’s chariot’s draw near.
Wait, 600 chariots? How many Israelites were there? Over two million! Over six hundred thousand men!
Panic! Run! Help! Pick up a rock?!
Now the chariot was the latest in battle technology at the time, and a real game changer as far as the damage they could wield, but come on!
Slaves for over four hundred years and now finally free. Do you think you would role over and cry like a baby? I hope I wouldn’t!
But, do I?
Set free from sin, clothed in His righteousness, filled with THE HOLY SPIRIT! And sin comes crouching, fear and worry dig their claws in, bitterness and doubt shout their lies, and what do I do?
Mommy! This is too hard! I want my blankie!
Fathers! Men of God! Mothers and Holy women! We must stand up! We must stop them from taking one more of our children! We must speak truth and life into their lives so that our families and loved ones know the difference. We must live for Jesus Christ, daily in His word, constantly in prayer.
When you see the power inside of you and expose the toothless roars of the enemy . . . well . . . It looks like 2 million against 600.
