You Could Be Just 1 Step Away From Your Breakthrough

by | Apr 27, 2015 | Woman

What are you believing God for? What is it that you have been crying out to Him about on behalf of yourself, your family or ministry? May I suggest to you that your breakthrough may be closer than you think? In fact, in may only be one step away.

This was the case for Moses and the children of Israel over 5,000 years ago. They found themselves in a desperate place right on the brink of a miracle—literally! God had promised them deliverance from the cruel bondage of Pharaoh and Egypt into their own land, the Promise Land. What stood between them and the promise of God was a large body of water, the Red Sea and a few steps!

We recount the story in Exodus 14:13-15: “And Moses said to the people, ‘Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today you shall see again no more forever. The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.’ And the Lord said to Moses,  ‘Why do you cry to Me? Tell the children of Israel to go forward.'”

Those words may be the very ones you need to hear from God today. His promises to you may seem so out of reach that you have a difficult time believing they will ever come to pass. You may have prayed and confessed until there is nothing left for you to do. Many times, we are waiting on God to move, but often, He is waiting on us. He desires us to follow Him so closely that when His spirit says, “Move!” we get marching. Yes, beloved, He wants us that near to Him.

Obedience always opens the door for God to move in our lives. Whether it is obedience to what we read in His Word or something His Spirit prompts us to do, it is always for our freedom and His glory. We not only see this in this story, but I can personally attest to this being the way that God has worked in my life.

Imagine Moses and the children of Israel on the edge of the Red Sea. The air is filled with the noise and movement of millions of people on the brink of a miracle. The fear, anticipation, and awe of what has been promised is so thick you can feel it all around you. Then the command comes for Moses to raise his rod over the sea as the people have already been commanded to move. As they look back, the Egyptians pursuing them on their horses fill the landscape and their hearts with the worst fear of their lives. Yet something in them strongly urges their feet forward and as they crowd together and move swiftly. The Red Sea begins to make a way for them. Their Strong Deliverer makes a way for them!

So what is between you and your promise? The air of your life may be filled with fears and doubts that were present that day in Egypt, but let these next verses give you great courage, “Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the Lord caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea into dry land, and the waters were divided. So the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea on the dry ground, and the waters were a wall to them on their right hand and on their left” (Ex. 14:21-22). They were leaving bondage and heading into the promises of God. And to think, it all began with taking one step of faith!
