"And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever." Exodus 14:13
Never underestimate the power of God! The Israelites had seen the power of God demonstrated in Egypt through each of the plagues. They had seen Him bring darkness upon the land, hail stones, turn the waters of Egypt into blood and protect them while death passed throughout the land. Yet here they are standing before the Red Sea in fear of Pharaoh behind them and the sea in front of them.
How did they not know that God would deliver them? Why didn't they trust Him? After all, they had already seen His power, they had seen Him do so many miracles. The reason-- "Fear ye not". Fear will rob you of faith and cause you to believe its report and not God. It will cause you to doubt and underestimate God's ability to save you, deliver you, heal you, provide for you, keep His word to you or come through for you.
Are you like those Israelites? You have seen the power of God. He has moved on your behalf time and time again. You know He is able to do exceeding abundantly above all you can ask or think but this time you are doubting? You are thinking that this is too big even for God. God's word to you is-- do not fear and do not underestimate His power. He is All Powerful! With Him nothing is impossible. He is able to open up the sea before you. He is able to destroy the enemy behind you. He is able to pull down the giant with a small stone. He can still bring water from a rock. He is able to quench the fire, shut the lion's mouths and cause the mountain to be cast into the sea.
Again, do not underestimate His power! This is not a man we are talking about. This is not just another person. This is not an angelic being. This is not some elderly God who has become weak and tired. He is God-- the Omnipotent, Omniscient, Omnipresent, Creator of the universe, who only has to think it and it happens.
Have a great day. Do not underestimate the power of the Lord!
