Response to a Detour!

Moses answered the people, "Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the LORD will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still." Exodus 14:13-14

We can let fear dominate our life or we can choose to be strong and courageous. I say we can “choose” but have you noticed in today’s verse it is a command? Why would God do that? Why would He command us to be strong and courageous? Because we NEED it and He is WORTHY of it! However, we do have options. We can let fear grip our heart and influence our decisions. We can rationalize why we can’t be strong or courageous. We can justify why we should be discouraged and drown in self-pity and yet what does God command? “Do not be terrified, do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Today, I am deciding to obey the Lord by being strong and courageous in everything I face.

When you are facing a detour…. Remember Jesus desires to walk the journey with you…do not be afraid and stand strong in your faith…then keep your eyes open during your detour because you will witness an Almighty God that will...

Part the Red Sea,

Bring the walls of Jericho down,

Slay the Giant with one little stone,

Keep you alive in the belly of a fish,

Bring fire down and burn a wet alter,

Be born in a small stable

Make the lame walk, the blind to see, and the deaf to hear,

He will cast out the demons

He will rise from the dead…

I am keeping my eyes open and looking for great things to come. You know I love ya, Don
