God’s Suddenly from Discouragement
Last week we spoke about God’s Suddenly from bareness. We saw from Gideon’s life that we have a part to play – it is to be humble and obedient to God.
Today we look at another one of God’s suddenlies.
God’s Suddenly From Discouragement
Exodus chapter 14 – Israel is set free from bondage. They are set free physically, they aren’t yet set free from being slaves in their thinking.
The enemy pursues and traps them in a canyon, up against the sea – after so many years of slavery under the enemy- you can’t even remember when deep discouragement didn’t exist, when your family was not in poverty or just living from week to week – this is a multigenerational curse of slavery and it becomes ingrained in your being as a sense of heartless discouragement.
You may feel ready to submit to a watery death or a spear death that the enemy has designed for you – have you utterly lost heart?
Has it been so long since anything as gone your way? Is everything you do a struggle?
Is everything a battle and you can hardly stand to fight another one? Your ready to take the lashes of your master if you can survive the final slaughter.
Don’t forget about the suddenlies…
