This is our B moment. Our moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: Exodus 14:14 (NLT)
Today I am reminding myself about the importance of living with great expectations. As we embark upon the Advent Season, a season of expectation and anticipation — reflecting on the birth of Christ as well as looking forward to the second coming of Christ, we should also be reminded that God longs for us to expect great things from Him.
When I turn to the Scriptures, I think about when the Israelites fled Egypt after being in slavery for more than 400 hundred years. When God guided them out of Egypt, He didn’t take them on a logical path — from Point A to Point B. Instead, He led them on a more scenic route.
This scenic path landed them between the wilderness and the Red Sea. When Pharaoh learned of this, he thought the Israelites were trapped, so he ordered his army to go after them. When the Israelites saw Pharaoh’s army in a distance marching towards them, they panicked.
But just as they began to fear the worst, God instructed Moses to hold his staff over the Red Sea and a path opened up for the Israelites to walk through on dry ground.
Sometimes God will lead us to the brink only to reveal His awesome power in our lives.
The Words that I will use to remind me that God has both me and my situation are – “The Lord Himself will fight for you.” Exodus 14:14 (NLT)
Please share this reflection because others desire to be inspired.
So today, let this Advent Season be a season of great expectations for you.
I love being reminded that God is still in control. That I don’t have to “fight” alone or for that next blessing because He’s there fighting for me. How awesome! Thanks Suzette for the reminder. xo
Yes, sometimes I put so much pressure on myself to deliver when God is reminding me that he has both me and my situation. Thanks for sharing!
