When the children of Israel were delivered from Egypt, their exodus was soon followed by a massive challenge between the old and the new.
As they approached the Red Sea, they saw the Egyptian army behind them and the sea in front of them. Using only human logic, they were terrified. Behind and before them was death. They were trapped with nowhere to go.
But because Moses lived in a world of no limits, he didn’t see the Egyptians or the sea. He saw God (Exodus 14:15-21).
Then when Moses stretched out his hand, the invisible became visible. The Israelites witnessed the parting of the waters and walked on dry land, but when the Egyptians tried to do the same, the waters closed up and they drowned.
What made the difference? Moses saw His “no-limits” God and obeyed Him, even in that terrifying situation.
As we become able to really see the Lord, He becomes more real to us than our own obstacles.
The physical world is full of overwhelming “giants”—limitations and challenges— that try to prevent us from accepting the promises of God, but as we learn to walk in the Spirit, we discover a promised land with no limits.
When you focus on the Lord, you don’t see the past—you don’t even see the future. You see Him!
How do you begin, like Moses, to see God instead of the barriers?
