Move on!

Move on! It is the statement God told Moses to tell the Israel people. Another version said, go forward.

Move on!



Exodus 14:14-15 NIV
The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.” [15] Then the Lord said to Moses, “Why are you crying out to me? Tell the Israelites to move on.

The Israel nation was faced with either return to Egypt or face the red sea.

Standing in front of the red sea and hearing someone telling you to go forward is the most daunting words you can take.

We don’t hear such bold words nowadays, but no doubt, God still speaks only in different ways.

A little trust in God and confidence in ourselves is all we need to face our red sea and move to the other side instead of dwelling in the past.

The past is useful for lessons, but its moment is gone. Today is all we have, and there’s an opportunity to advance to the next level if we move on.

At the right place the right time

This morning, I went through the verse I had read before, and I found a renewed inspiration.

So Ruth went out to gather grain behind the harvesters. And as it happened, she found herself working in a field that belonged to Boaz, the relative of her father-in-law, Elimelech.
Ruth 2:3 NLT

There’s a lot in this verse, but I will break it into one piece in prayers.

May we find ourselves in the right place and at the right time. We shall not miss our rightful place in Jesus’ name.

We shall enjoy God’s grace and favor. God’s mercy shall meet us at the feet of Jesus. We will not miss our blessings by a split of a second.

In the morning, favor meets us. At noon, God’s graciousness won’t leave us, and in the night, His help will remain at our sides. We will not labor in vain.

God’s favor and mercy will bring us closer to our destiny, and we shall fulfill destiny in the name of Jesus.

You will be positioned to your glory and destiny at the right place at the right time.

But in that coming day no weapon turned against you will succeed. You will silence every voice raised up to accuse you. These benefits are enjoyed by the servants of the Lord ; their vindication will come from me. I, the Lord , have spoken!
Isaiah 54:17 NLT

Tell them to move on

Exodus 14:15-16 NIV
Then the Lord said to Moses, “Why are you crying out to me? Tell the Israelites to move on. [16] Raise your staff and stretch out your hand over the sea to divide the water so that the Israelites can go through the sea on dry ground.

It suggests that God doesn’t want us to return to Egypt or the past.
It also means that if God is telling us to move forward, He will likely give directions on what to do.

Psalm 46:10-11 NIV
He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” [11] The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.

Grace at work

The grace of God is constantly working in us to perfect God’s purpose in us for His glory.

For God wanted them to know that the riches and glory of Christ are for you Gentiles, too. And this is the secret: Christ lives in you. This gives you assurance of sharing his glory.
Colossians 1:27

God’s grace will work to bring us closer to where we belong– our rightful place.

Seasons Reminder (2.0)

A current season only reminds us that another season will come. Snow time only reminds us that the Spring will come and when the Springs finally arrives, we know that the summer is in the corner.

Seasons Reminder

The rain only reminds us that the flowers will soon sprout. And the hard soil reminds us that we should wait a little more and the rain will soften the hard crust.
It is appropriate that a farmer who has spent the early Spring planting to expect harvesting in the Fall.
A hardworking student gets success. Diligent entrepreneurs experience business growth and profit. A loving husband enjoys his marital home, and a caring wife wins the love of his lover.
The present problems and challenges of life are just a reminder that the glorious season will come, and we will smile again.
Weeping endures only for a moment, but joy comes in the morning.
Challenges are just a reminder that we can patiently find the solution that makes for a better living.
Challenges are a season, and it will pass. When you have the desired results, and the solutions are in your hands, your season of rejoicing is here.

How to turn your exhausted life into an excited life 5.0

When there is no one to encourage you in your challenges, you have to inspire yourself.

When there is no one around to help or to console, and everyone abandons you, encourage yourself. When others let you down, you should not let yourself down. Take these steps in times of crisis. Do not let your guard down. Be strong and courageous. 

Shake off fear and hopelessness. Develop a strong-willed mind and a sound Spirit. In a short time, you will come out as a victor.

As I conclude this series, I would like to remind us of all the lessons– that you can refresh your old memories that bring sweet feelings. Although this seems simple, you have to recollect all of the good feelings you had in the past.

Those who wait on God receive strength and power. You can come to God to obtain this strength that you will need in times of weakness.

God’s promises are unbroken. They will surely come to pass. He is not a man that lies or a man that cannot hold unto his word and fulfill it.

Hope does not give up because there is an assurance that God can do what He says. There is no failure with God.

Seek counsel! At the moment, you feel downcast and weary. You need help that is reliable and able to lift you from your lowly state. There are times you cannot do it all alone, and an extra hand is all you need to be on your two toes.

Do not give up on yourself. If you can breathe, you can live again.

How to turn your exhausted life into an excited life 4.0

In my previous posts, I discussed sweet old memories, waiting on God to re-energized your dampened spirit and Hope, which is an expectation and assurance in God’s faithfulness that what He promises will happen or come to pass.

Today, I am introducing another recipe for the revitalization of your exhausting life. 

Seek counsel! At the moment, you feel downcast and weary. You need help that is reliable and able to lift you from your lowly state. There are times you cannot do it all alone, and an extra hand is all you need to be on your two toes.

Seek counsel. Shun pride and get help. Swallow your ego. Do all you can to get to your feet again. You cannot allow your weary life to go down the drain. 

Many will fall, weary, and tired in this life. Many fagged out and exhausted will give up while those who are wise will seek counsel and gain understanding.

In a race, all athletes run to win the prize, but only one gets the winning prize. Acquire wisdom and seek the expert who knows the strategies for winning a race. Without counsel, failure is inevitable.

You cannot help yourself when you are weak or falling. You need help when you stumble or fail. Mistakes are not final, but a smart person will learn from the mistakes, and a wise person will go to the elderly to gain wisdom.

 Also, it is good to attend to instructions and words of wisdom, and avoid making the same mistakes again and again.

You do not have to walk this life alone. With lots of provisions of vast experience people, you never should walk alone.

 

Without wise leadership, a nation falls; there is safety in having many advisers.

Fools think their own way is right, but the wise listen to others.

Get all the advice and instruction you can, so you will be wise the rest of your life.

Oh, the joys of those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or stand around with sinners, or join in with mockers.

Carrier of limitless power

As a Christian, you’re a carrier of unbelievable, limitless power. The embodiment of the Trinity resides inside of you. The glory of God surrounds you. The God-head makes its home inside your heart.

You cannot be defeated because Jesus always wins. He wins every single battle.  If He is a winner, so you are! And Jesus can never lose!

This limitless power has an endless supply of resources that can never run out of stock. Remember, God owns the heavens and the earth. Everything is God, and everything belongs to Him.

He is power incarnate and fullness of eternity.

This limitless power a believer has is difficult to explain with words. There are no expressions good enough to describe the power of God that a Christian has at his disposal. 

It’s impossible to describe God fully. Therefore, it’s impossible to explain how much power a believer has. Unfortunately, many don’t know it and couldn’t use the resources at their disposal. Lots of people suffer from a lack of understanding of this truth. The weakest Christian is more powerful than any demon.

You’re a power carrier, and the power you carry is limitless. The moment you know this truth, you become free because the truth you know makes you free. Lack of this knowledge brings you destruction because anyone can perish for lack of knowledge.

Therefore, Rise! Lift your voice in victory. Rejoice and bask in God’s power and love that lives inside you.

You are victorious!

and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might

Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us,
