15 And the Lord said to Moses, “Why do you cry to Me? Tell the children of Israel to go forward.
The directive from the Lord for you today is Go Forward.
The Israelites had finally gotten the direction to leave Egypt. Moses was chosen as the leader, a deliverer.
God will not change, but man will. Note Exodus 14:8:
8And the Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh king of Egypt, and he pursued the children of Israel; and the children of Israel went out with boldness. 9 So the Egyptians pursued them, all the horses and chariots of Pharaoh, his horsemen and his army, and overtook them camping by the sea beside Pi Hahiroth, before Baal Zephon. 10And when Pharaoh drew near, the children of Israel lifted their eyes, and behold, the Egyptians marched after them. So they were very afraid, and the children of Israel cried out to the Lord. 11Then they said to Moses, “Because there were no graves in Egypt, have you taken us away to die in the wilderness? Why have you so dealt with us, to bring us up out of Egypt? 12 Is this not the word that we told you in Egypt, saying, ‘Let us alone that we may serve the Egyptians’? For it would have been better for us to serve the Egyptians than that we should die in the wilderness.”

Prerequisites for Us to Go Forward
13And 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.
Fear will paralyze you because you have no idea what the outcome will be. But what if it does work?
Fear cannot be the dominating force in your life.
Sometimes when the enemy comes in God will simply tell you to stand still. Take your stand.
Speak to those situations in your life. The outcome will be different than what you think because God has already seen it.
See how God will come through. See the salvation of the Lord.
“Your Pharaohs won’t have the last say so.” – Pastor Billy Johnson
Hold Your Peace
14The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.”
God has NEVER lost a battle. You just be silent.
16But lift up your rod, and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it. And the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea.
God is getting ready to do something for you the likes you’ve never seen before.
God Wants to Gain Honor
17And I indeed will harden the hearts of the Egyptians, and they shall follow them. So I will gain honor over Pharaoh and over all his army, his chariots, and his horsemen. 18Then the Egyptians shall know that I am the Lord, when I have gained honor for Myself over Pharaoh, his chariots, and his horsemen.”
This is no longer about you but about God. The Egyptians will know that God is I AM!
