Forward . . . March!

"Feelings are real, but they aren't always based on reality 
so don't let them lead you." Jennifer Rothschild

God freed the Israelites from captivity, but the enemy was relentless. Pharoah was in hot pursuit and threatened to return them to a place of bondage. 

Moses prophesied over God's people. He told them not to be afraid, to stand firm, and to see the deliverance of the Lord. He assured them that the Lord would fight this battle for them. 

Then the Lord said to Moses, "Why are you crying out to me? tell the Israelites to move on."  Exodus 14:15

The Israelites were not to lift a hand to defeat the enemy. God had set them free, and he was calling them to move walk in the freedom he'd provided. 

Don't let the enemy strike fear in your heart. Let the sound of your praises and the pounding of your feet on the pavement before you drown out the rattling of sabers and the clamoring of the enemy behind you. God's got your back. 

What has God called you to do? Get busy with his plan for your life. Trust him and move forward. He's got your future too.

Now it's your turn: What are some ways you choose to move forward when the enemy is in hot pursuit?

I always welcome your comments.
