Bible Excerpt: Exodus 14:10-16
I will focus mainly on 3 verses;
Verses 10, 11, 12, 13, 14.
As Pharaoh approached, the Israelites looked up, and there were the Egyptians, marching after them. They were terrified and cried out to the Lord . 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? 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!” 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 14:10-14 NIV
I admit I felt like the Israelites, saying that I’d rather remain in my current situation than moving on. And even going as far as to say that they were being brought to the desert to die. God led them out of Egypt in style and yet that doubted his plans.
I do admit i felt that way because i was angry. I was angry because of my injury and my current medical condition. I felt like a weakling. It felt like something twisting in my heart as I saw my friends move on and even moving to better lives in the army.
I just want to move on to my next phase. I choose to trust God for my fate.
Recently I have also encountered many issues. I am slowly entering into adulthood. With it came lots of freedom. But with freedom, came more responsibilities. My medical condition, my unstable emotional state, my dreamy state, my deep concern for my future.
Sometimes i feel like puking from choking all of these issues at once. God please come and fall afresh on me daily and annoint me with your oil. Give me daily my fresh spiritual food. Let me food from you and your word alone. In this spiritual war with myself, I want to emerge triumphant with the trophy lifted in my arms in victory. And I will proclaim Your goodness and deep everlasting all the days of my life.
I commit to You today Lord that if You were to deliver me from this sorry plight and lift me out from my dark period, I will daily look upon you for living. I commit to living a life passionate for you and I commit to forsaking all sorts of sexual gratification and secret sexual sins.
Lord prepare me to stir an impact in your kingdom. Lord train me and I want to be used by You when your time for me comes. I want to be led by your holy spirit in all decisions I make in my life from now onward.
Lord break all these boundaries and come quick to deliver me
All these I commit to you in faith that you are able to have your ways of divine intervention
In Jesus’ lovely and powerful name,
