God is the God of the Impossible
By: Jeremiah, Servant of the Living God
… “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. 14 The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.”
God is the God of the impossible and the one who can make a miracle out of any situation. He is the same God who delivered Daniel unharmed from Lion’s den. The same One who delivered the Hebrew boys from a fiery furnace, that same furnace burnt and killed those who threw them in. He is the same God who took the children of Israel through the Red Sea. He is the same God who brought the ten plagues on Egypt and delivered the children of Israel, free.
I say God is the God of the impossible and the one who can make a miracle out of any situation. No matter what situation you find yourself in, the first thing is don’t fear. Exodus 14:1-14 highlights the story of the Israelites as they flee from the Egyptians into the desert but are now cornered also at the edge of the Red Sea.
1 Then the Lord said to Moses,
2 “Tell the Israelites to turn back and encamp near Pi Hahiroth, between Migdol and the sea. They are to encamp by the sea, directly opposite Baal Zephon.
3 Pharaoh will think, ‘The Israelites are wandering around the land in confusion, hemmed in by the desert.’
4 And I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, and he will pursue them. But I will gain glory for myself through Pharaoh and all his army, and the Egyptians will know that I am the Lord.” So the Israelites did this.
5 When the king of Egypt was told that the people had fled, Pharaoh and his officials changed their minds about them and said, “What have we done? We have let the Israelites go and have lost their services!”
6 So he had his chariot made ready and took his army with him.
7 He took six hundred of the best chariots, along with all the other chariots of Egypt, with officers over all of them.
8 The Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh king of Egypt, so that he pursued the Israelites, who were marching out boldly.
9 The Egyptians—all Pharaoh’s horses and chariots, horsemen[a] and troops—pursued the Israelites and overtook them as they camped by the sea near Pi Hahiroth, opposite Baal Zephon.
10 As Pharaoh approached, the Israelites looked up, and there were the Egyptians, marching after them. They were terrified and cried out to the Lord.
11 They said to Moses, “Was it because there were no graves in Egypt that you brought us to the desert to die? What have you done to us by bringing us out of Egypt?
12 Didn’t we say to you in Egypt, ‘Leave us alone; let us serve the Egyptians’? It would have been better for us to serve the Egyptians than to die in the desert!”
13 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.
14 The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.”
You see, that is why it is important to call on God. As Christians, because you have God, that’s why we need to call him always. He is faithful to deliver.
Psalms: 50:15, let us know how to call Him. It states, “and call on me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you will honor me.”
We call on God through prayer.
Prayer is just like something you store in the fridge. Whenever you need it, just go, and take it out. Whenever you are praying, try to fast from time to time. It will change your lifestyle and the outcome of your spiritual battle.
Spiritual warfare will not have power in your life again, because you can pray.
Trouble will not have power in your life again, because you can pray.
Bad situations may come, but it is very sure that you will overcome them. This is a certainty when you invite the Holy Spirit into your life.
The Holy Spirit is the supernatural being that Jesus sent into the world to be our Comforter. But He is so much more. He is God. He is powerful. He sees all and knows all and can end all our battles. The Holy Spirit will fight for us and deliver us.
May God Help Us.
Trust your God, as it is better to trust in God than to put your confidence in man. Like it says in Psalms 118: 8-20, all the nations may surround you, but you just stand and trust your God, that he is your redeemer.
Psalms 118: 8-20
8 It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in humans.
9 It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in princes.
10 All the nations surrounded me, but in the name of the Lord I cut them down.
11 They surrounded me on every side, but in the name of the Lord I cut them down.
12 They swarmed around me like bees, but they were consumed as quickly as burning thorns; in the name of the Lord I cut them down.
13 I was pushed back and about to fall, but the Lord helped me.
14 The Lord is my strength and my defense[a]; he has become my salvation.
15 Shouts of joy and victory resound in the tents of the righteous: “The Lord’s right hand has done mighty things!
16 The Lord’s right hand is lifted high; the Lord’s right hand has done mighty things!”
17 I will not die but live, and will proclaim what the Lord has done.
18 The Lord has chastened me severely, but he has not given me over to death.
19 Open for me the gates of the righteous; I will enter and give thanks to the Lord.
20 This is the gate of the Lord through which the righteous may enter.
Meditate on God’s Word
Many Christians struggle daily to live according to God’s word. But we need daily nourishment. That is why it is important to read your bible daily; even if it is a few verses and meditate on them.
