Audience: General adults
Youíve done everything you know to do, your exhausted, your at the point of giving up, whatís the use,
itís hopeless, I canít do it.
Your finally in position for a miracle, for God almighty to do what you could never do, heís just been waiting for you to recognize Your weakness, and his strength.
Youíll never know his strength till you recognize your weakness
*The Lord told the Apostle Paul: My grace is sufficient for thee and my strength is made perfect in weakness.
The Lord saw the disciples out on the sea fighting a violent storm, but he waited till the forth watch of the night to come to them on the water
#1 Because they didnít need him yet,
Because they still had strength, and as long as they had strength they didnít need his
#2 More than likely had they still had strength they wouldnít have received him in the way that he came to them.
God may be wanting to do something new and fresh in your life, but he canít get it through to you until he gets you in a place where you canít do anymore.
God is wanting to do something in your life he has never done before, and to do that he has to bring you to a place you have never been before.
Ex 14:21 And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; (Moses acted on Faith and God Moved. Notice it was Moses Hand outstretched not Godís)and the LORD caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided.
Here is a lesson that will change your life:
God works the night shift, The greatest miracle of your life may be one hour away, It always gets the darkest just before the dawn.
When they closed their eyes that night, there was a red sea in front of them, when they opened their eyes in the morning there was an eight lane highway.
(Exo 14:29 ) But the children of Israel walked upon dry land in the midst of the sea; and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left.
Here was the most awesome thing, Through the midst of the red sea with dry feet,
Not only can God bring you out but he will bring you out in such a way that you will never look like you what you been in.
The 3 Hebrew children came out of the fire without the smell of smoke on them and their hair wasnít even singed.
I donít know what you may be facing today, but the Lord told me to tell you, Heís got it all under control, And if youíll just quit worrying, and complaining, and fretting, and fuming, and start praising him heís going to turn it around, and there are some enemies that you have been fighting that you are not going to have to fight anymore.
(Exo 14:30 KJV) Thus the LORD saved Israel that day out of the hand of the Egyptians; and Israel saw the Egyptians dead upon the sea shore.
Stand still and see the salvation of the Lord
This is the word of the Lord today: God has it all under control.
Itís time to move over and let him fight your battles.
If youíll just stand there right where you are and youíll lift your voice right now and begin to praise him, God almighty is going to step in front of you and your enemies, and he is going to fight for you.
Paul and silas were locked up in prison, backs beaten and bleeding, cast into the inner prison, their feet held fast in stocks, couldnít go left, or right, couldnít go forward or backward, but they knew a secret
