Get Moving

“As Pharaoh approached, the people of Israel looked up and panicked when they saw the Egyptians overtaking them. They cried out to the Lord, and they said to Moses, ‘Why did you bring us out here to die in the wilderness? – But Moses told the people, ‘Don’t be afraid. Just stand still and watch the Lord rescue you today. The Egyptians you see today will never be seen again. The Lord himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.’ Then the Lord said to Moses, ‘Why are you crying out to me? Tell the people to get moving!’” Exodus 14:10, 15

It is so easy to complain. The Jews had fled Egypt, not because of some clever plan cloaked in the darkness of night, but because of incredible miracles of God. Now God brought them to the edge of the Red Sea. Without faith it looked like a dead end. It looked like an impossibility that they would ever escape. So they did what comes so naturally, they complained. Their conclusion said it all, “It’s better to be a slave in Egypt than a corpse in the wilderness!” Moses tried to console them to no avail; so Moses did what he often did. He talked to God, face to face. God’s answer was swift and to the point, “Why are you crying out to me? Tell the people to get moving!” How about you? Do you find yourself complaining about the situation you find yourself in? Do you have a hard time looking through the “eyes of faith”? There is a time to cry out to God and there is a time to get moving. Which is it for you?

Father, I find it so easy to complain. How I must grieve Your heart! Forgive me Lord. Help me to move ahead in faith.

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
