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. THE LORD SHALL FIGHT FOR YOU, AND YE SHALL HOLD YOUR PEACE. Exodus 14:13-14. In His Great Wisdom, the Lord allowed the Jews to live under the heavy hand of the Egyptians for 400 years. The Egyptians, representing the World, wanted to be "god" to the Jews, representing the Believers, to be the sole provider of food, water, shelter, and even life itself. The Jews could not move at all, except the Egyptians allowed it, UNTIL THE DAY THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY SHOWED UP. Then the Jews went "from the frying pan, and into the fire", and it went downhill from there. The Jews, the Believers, went from living off the meager provisions of worldly leaks and garlics, to running towards freedom straight out in the desert where they found no water, no food, no shelter, and no safety. They went from "life" in the world, to a moment of "death" in the Lord. When ALL hope of even seeing tomorrow was taken away, THEN the Jews cried out to The Lord, AND HE SHOWED UP BEARING HIS MIGHTY RIGHT ARM OF PROTECTION, PROVISIONS, AND BLESSINGS, to a people who never even dreamed of what God Almighty would do for His People, in the center of worldliness and nothingness. He gave them bread, water, quail, shelter from the heat by day and the cold by night, as He lived in a little tent in the midst of them. Sadly, and by choice, they never understood the full impact of God Dwelling among them. They survived, but never Believing for the "ALL" that He was offering them. Today, we Believers are still not fully comprehending the "ALL" of what the Lord wants to do in, to, and through us to a dead and dying world. We Believe for God's Greatness from the perspective of the world and its provision. Believers, the day IS coming when WE WILL SEE GOD AND ALL HIS PROVISION, as His Bride will, Be Blessed.
