Here’s How to Keep Right on Going..

Scripture: Hebrews 11.  

OBSERVATION
(What is God saying here?)

Hebrews 11:27-29 (NLT)
27 It was by faith that Moses left the land of Egypt, not fearing the king’s anger. He kept right on going because he kept his eyes on the one who is invisible.
28 It was by faith that Moses commanded the people of Israel to keep the Passover and to sprinkle blood on the doorposts so that the angel of death would not kill their firstborn sons.
29 It was by faith that the people of Israel went right through the Red Sea as though they were on dry ground. But when the Egyptians tried to follow, they were all drowned.

APPLICATION
(How Can I apply what God is saying here to my circumstances today?)

I believe that more today than ever before we throw up our hands and ask the BIG question, how can I keep on going? Another thing we say is that I just don’t know how much more of this I can take. In the verse/sentence that I bolded and underlined, Moses showed us how to keep right on going. As we look to God’s Word for guidance in all things, we see that we can keep right on going by keeping our eyes fixed on the only One who has all of the answers, the only One who could help us through life’s struggles and hardships; yes, keep our eyes fixed on Jesus. I was reminded recently about the faith of Moses in trying to move over three million people through the wilderness, to the promise land. Imagine the amount of water and food needed per day to feed such a multitude. Imagine the width of the opening in the Red Sea to move such a multitude across in such a short period of time. Friends, we have quite a record of the faith that our forefathers displayed. We are serving the same God that helped them through such challenging times. Must we really wonder about how we will keep on going, or how we could ever make it through such challenging times? For those of us that know Jesus personally, we can be encouraged and reminded to know that we have the power of the creator of this universe at our fingertips, so let’s place our faith and trust more fully in Him today and expect a miracle. Moses did this every day for 40 years and the record shows that God came through for Him. However, Moses had lots of faith. I pray that we would have the relationship with the Master and the faith to also believe in Him and the miracles that He could perform.

PRAYER
(With God’s help, what am I going to do differently today because He said it?)

Lord, You know exactly what we need, and You already bless us with so much already. I pray that You will always remind me that your power displayed in so many ways to my ancestors, and even to me in times past, is still available to me today. Please help me to keep in such close communion with You that I would never doubt Your power, and will always seek Your direction and help in all things. You are my King, and I am so proud to be an heir to Your throne and a recipient of Your grace. Thank You for loving and providing for me in such wonderful ways!
