Day 2: Discouraged No More


They looked ahead of them and saw the raging sea

that was blocking their path

to get to the other side.

CLOSED DOOR.

Now what?

IMPOSSIBILITY BREEDS DISCOURAGEMENT,

but

DISCOURAGEMENT is not a CLOSED DOOR.

"Then Moses said to the people,

'Do not be afraid!

Take your stand [be firm and confident and undismayed] and see the salvation of the LORD which HE will accomplish for you today;

for those Egyptians whom you have seen today,

you will never see again.

The LORD will fight for you while you [only need to]

keep silent and remain calm” *.

OPEN DOOR!

THE LORD WILL!

Did you catch that?

THE LORD WILL.

Now stop.

Look at your RED SEA that may be breeding

DISCOURAGEMENT,

because IMPOSSIBLE is all you SEE.

But THE LORD WILL!

Can you stand before your RED SEA

and say the words,

THE LORD WILL?

But what if you are so focused on the

RED SEA

and the raging waters,

that

DISCOURAGEMENT is washing all over you,

even though you know that

THE LORD WILL!

Then it isn't DISCOURAGEMENT,

as it is DISBELIEF in

GOD

who does make a WAY when there appears to be

NO WAY!

So what if Moses doesn't show up in your life

to raise his arms

to divide the RED SEA?

Where is your OPEN DOOR?

JESUS!

For HE showed up on your CROSS

with OPEN arms!

For JESUS didn't have to part the RED SEA,

for HE WALKED on WATER~

"JESUS came to them, walking on the sea"**

But what did HIS disciples do?

They freaked out,

just as the Israelites did

when they were standing before the

RED SEA

and saw a

CLOSED DOOR.

I bet GOD was just shaking HIS head

wondering when

WILL THEY BELIEVE ME!

So I ask you.

Do you SEE JESUS walking on your RED SEA as HE speaks to you~

"Take courage, it is I! Do not be afraid!”**

For

"The LORD will fight for you while you [only need to]

keep silent and remain calm” *

Did GOD keep HIS PROMISE

and part the RED SEA?

Was it really JESUS walking on water

when PETER questioned HIM,

BUT JESUS answered

PETER

with

"COME"**.

COME is the OPEN DOOR.

Peter came.

He walked on water

until

he took HIS eyes off of JESUS

and

DISCOURAGEMENT CLOSED THE DOOR.

Peter sunk!

Did JESUS CLOSE THE DOOR?

Did JESUS leave PETER to drown?

Oh no.

For JESUS' DOOR is ALWAYS OPEN.

"Immediately JESUS extended HIS hand and caught him,

saying to him,

'O you of little faith, why did you doubt?' "

**(Matthew 14: 25-31).

Will you CLOSE THE DOOR

of

DISCOURAGEMENT

as you look upon upon your

RED SEA of IMPOSSIBILITY

by walking with your eyes peeled on

JESUS,

THE OPEN DOOR,

who WILL not only

make you WALK above the RED SEA,

because you will be

"DANCING ON THE WAVES"
