Hebrews 11:29 (NKJV) – By faith they passed through the Red Sea as by dry land, whereas the Egyptians, attempting to do so, were drowned.

Are you caught up in a difficult situation and see no way out? Friends, I have good news for you. There may be painful circumstances where you see no apparent way of escape, but the Lord Almighty makes a way! It is our great privilege to face hard things because Jesus has conquered this world and given us the victory.

Declaration: Lord, I will not be afraid of the mountains I face because You will bring every mountain low and lift every valley. My path will be straight because of Your mighty hand at work on my behalf. In Jesus’ name, Amen!

Faith opened the way for the Hebrews to cross the Red Sea. Day to day, week to week, year to year we are faced with obstacles that only our faith can see us through. It doesn’t take much! I like to say that it only takes a little bit of good to overcome a whooole lot of evil! King Jesus told His disciples that faith the size of a mustard seed is all that is needed to command a mountain to be displaced into the depths of the sea! 

The Father has set the precedent by His word! Isaiah 40:3-5 (ESV) declares, A voice cries: “In the wilderness prepare the way of the LORD; make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Every valley shall be lifted up, and every mountain and hill be made low; the uneven ground shall become level, and the rough places a plain. And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together, for the mouth of the LORD has spoken.”
I Imagine the disciples thought of these verses as Jesus spoke to them about mountain removal.

Friends, we glorify God Almighty when we, as His children, choose to live by faith and confront the wrong things in this world. Just like King Jesus, who went around doing good and destroying the works of the enemy, we, too, have a ministry of reconciliation. (Acts 10:38; 2 Corinthians 5:18-20)
