There are many times in life when we feel we have been in pain long enough. We feel we have suffered long enough. We believe we have prayed long enough. Nevertheless, it seems like God does not hear us and doesn't respond FAST ENOUGH!
The funny thing is that when deliverance comes, it may not be an easy transition. Sometimes it looks like you "jumped out of the frying pan right into the fire." Sometimes there isn't a clear, walkable path ahead of you. Other times, the fear of leaving something familiar, even though you hate it, makes you resist forward motion. You may not want to admit it but sometimes you are just afraid of the devil and don't want to bother him by walking into your destiny. PLEASE BE ENCOURAGED! God will not make a promise He doesn't intend to create a path of granted access to when you are aligned with His will. Your job is to stand, trust His word and do not fear the enemy. The devil doesn't have time to play games with you; if he could have killed you, it would be done. Don't make the mistake of exchanging faith for fear and don't stop to ask obvious questions when God already said, "MOVE FORWARD!"
"But Moses told the people, 'Don’t be afraid. Just stand still and watch the Lord rescue you today. The Egyptians you see today will never be seen again. The Lord himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.' Then the Lord said to Moses, 'Why are you crying out to me? Tell the people to get moving!'" ~Exodus 14:13-15 NLT
