Exodus 14:13-16 The Message (MSG)
13 Moses spoke to the people: “Don’t be afraid. Stand firm and watch God do his work of salvation for you today. Take a good look at the Egyptians today for you’re never going to see them again.
14 God will fight the battle for you.
And you? You keep your mouths shut!”
Experts have claimed that the number one impeding force to humanity is fear. They also claim that this fear manifests itself in the form of stress.
I wholeheartedly agree with this, but fear is not the root to the “freezing” impact.
What is it?
It’s condemnation….. Condemnation from man, and condemnation from self. The same sound as Moses is resonating today: “Don’t be afraid. Stand firm and watch God do his work of salvation for you today.”
No matter what my natural eye may see, I choose to see with my inner eye of possibilities. I will shut my mouth from opening the door of condemnation and releasing fear.
