10 And when Pharaoh drew nigh, the children of Israel lifted up their eyes, and, behold, the Egyptians marched after them; and they were sore afraid: and the children of Israel cried out unto the Lord.
11 And they said unto Moses, Because there were no graves in Egypt, hast thou taken us away to die in the wilderness? wherefore hast thou dealt thus with us, to carry us forth out of Egypt?
12 Is not this the word that we did tell thee in Egypt, saying, Let us alone, that we may serve the Egyptians? For it had been better for us to serve the Egyptians, than that we should die in the wilderness.
13 And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of theLord, 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.
14 The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.
15 And the Lord said unto Moses, Wherefore criest thou unto me? speak unto the children of Israel, that they go forward:
16 But lift thou up thy rod, and stretch out thine hand over the sea, and divide it: and the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea.
17 And I, behold, I will harden the hearts of the Egyptians, and they shall follow them: and I will get me honour upon Pharaoh, and upon all his host, upon his chariots, and upon his horsemen.
18 And the Egyptians shall know that I am the Lord, when I have gotten me honour upon Pharaoh, upon his chariots, and upon his horsemen.
19 And the angel of God, which went before the camp of Israel, removed and went behind them; and the pillar of the cloud went from before their face, and stood behind them:
20 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.
21 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.
22 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. King James Version (KJV)
Have you ever found yourself facing the challenges of life?
God said, start celebrating because he is about to set you up for a blessing. He is about to give you back what the enemy stoled from you. He’s about to give the enemy a "TKO". TKO is a boxing term which means a Technical Knock Out. A TKO is where a boxer is considered the winner after knocking the opponent down three times. He's going to give a TKO to whatever has been disrupting your praise, stealing your joy, riding your back, chocking your neck, and making your life uncomfortable. The three times is one for the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.
I don’t know what your Red Sea is, but know "It’s a Set Up"!
In Exodus 14, the children of Israel found themselves in a desperate situation. They are trapped with nowhere to turn. There seems to be no way out. They are caught between the Pharaoh, his army, and the deep Red Sea! There are times in our lives when we feel like the children of Israel, experiencing a Red Sea episode in our lives: Financial Problems, Family Problems, and Health Issues.
God told me to tell you there is more to this than meets the eye. He told me to tell you that "It's a Set Up". He told me to tell you that what looks like the worst circumstances you’ve ever faced in your life is getting ready to thrust you into new glory, a brand new anointing, a new level of faith and power beyond anything that you have ever experienced before.
I thank you for my Red Sea experiences because it draws me closer to you. God, in your word you stated, "I am more than a conqueror" and I walk in authority because of your word. Although I may be having a Red Sea experience, you are in the midst. You are the Sovereign God and the Almighty God; therefore I will trust you during my Red Sea experience.
