My mind scrambles to focus on one prayer. There are just so many things to be interceding for it has become difficult to focus on just one thing. But, this morning while praying and attempting to hear what it was the Lord wanted me to pray over, a word came to mind: PATIENCE
This morning, I am praying for patience to rest upon God’s children.
I see us, standing behind Moses as he stands in the water, his staff before him. The fire is behind us, the enemy so close we can feel them pressing in. Many have ran to the right and to the left because they fear the waters won’t part. They believe their best chance of survival is to run, to find someplace to hide and to allow the enemy to overtake the masses because they think there is no way to victory.
But, the Remnant waits, desperately looking out over the waters which aren’t yet moving. We know there is no turning back, there is no running away. Regardless of the fact we don’t see it, we don’t hear it, we don’t feel it, we have to believe the waters will separate.
Lord, I pray the same patience that blanketed the Israelites as they waited for the Red Sea to part lands upon your children today. The Israelites heard the Egyptians screaming, desperate for revenge and bloodshed. The Israelites had no weapons to defend themselves, no training to fall back on in case that giant body of water didn’t move. They knew their only chance of survival was for the impossible to become possible.
God, we are there again. Waiting upon a mighty move of the Holy Spirit to descend upon your nation and move the immovable.
I pray for patience, God, patience as we wait for the separation, as we wait for the breeze to come sweeping in and reveal supernaturally what no man can reveal naturally.
Though many have already left, fearful of the enemy at our backs and worrying no miracle will come, many of us still stand and wait for the move we know is coming.
Although we feel the pressure, hear the enemy’s army and don’t yet see the miraculous, we know you are still God and your plan WILL come to pass.
So, we will wait, with patience, until you divide the undividable and lead us into the victory which rightfully belongs to us.
“And it came between the camp of the Egyptians and the camp of Israel; and it was a cloud and darkness to them, but it gave light by night to these: so that the one came not near the other all the night.
And 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 dry land, and the waters were divided.
And the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea upon the dry ground: and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left.” -Exodus 14:20-22
