Give It To God (Book Appendix excerpt)

Ephesians 14:13-14
And Moses said unto the people fear ye not, stand still and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you today; for the Egyptians whom ye have seen today, ye shall see them again no more forever.  The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.

Just like the children of Israel, many of us have seen God at work.  We have seen God heal the sick and have personally experience God’s healing power.  We have seen God open blinded eyes; open doors that were once closed and have made a way out of no way time and time again.

In spite of everything God has done, some of us still doubt him when we are faced with a trying situation or our backs are up against a wall.  Instead of running to God, many of us run from God and find ourselves going over the same mountain, the same problem, the same situation over and over again.

Child of God, what Egyptians are you facing?  What type of bondage are you in?  What is hindering or holding you back from being that man or woman of God, God has called and created you to be?

Just as Moses told the Children of Israel, God is telling you, first of all not to fear, because he has not given you the spirit of fear.  Next, He wants you to stand still – don’t run, because He has your back.  Now standing still sometimes means keeping your mouth closed, because many of us can talk our way out of a blessing. 

And finally, God wants you to see what He will do for you.  Not because of who you are, but because of who He is and the love He has for you.  God is saying to you through His Word, if you just turn everything over to me and stop trying to do it yourself, then I will make sure that you will never have to face that problem again. 

Your enemies will be defeated when God is exalted and in total control.
