“ The Lord will fight for you while you [only need to] keep silent and remain calm.” Ex.14:14 AMP.
Good morning friends, What a great weekend we had in God’s presence; we appreciate these in-person Sunday celebrations. I am renewed and empowered again. I am looking forward to the good things in store for us this week. I trust you had a great peaceful weekend. I believe God for great miracles and breakthroughs this week for everyone who has been praying and waiting silently in God.
Today I want to talk about the power of learning to practice silence at the edge of a breakthrough. I have observed that when we have been praying, and we are just about to receive victory, the enemy tends to put pressure that presses the panic button in us, and one starts speaking against what they have been praying and waiting for God to manifest.
Israel’s nation had been praying and waiting for over 400 years for God to rescue them out of the Egyptians’ hands. But when they were at the edge of a breakthrough, they faced a predicament, whereby the enemy was pursuing them, and it appeared as though there was nowhere to escape because they had the red sea in front of them, and surrounded by mountains and the Egyptian army was chasing after them.
At that moment, they lost faith in God; they could not see how He was going to rescue them out of that situation, so they panicked and started to complain, and were ready to give up. That also happens to us as believers, after we had been earnestly praying, waiting patiently for God, and when are at the edge of a breakthrough, the enemy starts putting all types of pressure that cause all kinds of confusion and fear, and we find ourselves confessing defeat and failure upon our lives.
Most of the time, we lose the Breakthrough, and it’s the most saddening time in the believer’s life. That is when the enemy attacks the mind and put doubt and fear. And when the believer is full of fear and doubt, the battle is automatically lost to the enemy.
Today I want us to learn from the leadership of the prophet Moses. He told the Israelites to be silent and hold their peace, and not say anything, and that was the only way they were going to see victory. I am aware that this post might not be for everyone, but for those who know they are just at the edge of a breakthrough, and they sense pressure rising from all around them.
May I encourage you to wait silently before God, do not speak prematurely. Learn to meditate in your heart and not allow the pressure to make you lose your faith in God. May I encourage you to guard what you say during this time because the enemy is waiting to hear the words of fear come out of your mouth so he can execute them over your life, while the angels of God are waiting for you to continue to believe and confess words that will bring life over the situation!
May I encourage to learn from the Lord Jesus, in Mark chapter 4 verses 37 to 39, when they told Him that the boat was sinking, He did not panic, He silently woke up and quieted the storm, and immediately there was a great calm.
There is the power that comes with silently waiting in God amid the storm. Most of the most significant victories are fought silently in God because it gives Him full control to win the battle. When we are calm, our faith becomes more robust than when we allow situations to shake.
May you receive strength for this week, and I pray that God grants all your prayers, and may gain victory as you wait silently for God alone.
My soul, wait silently for God alone, For my expectation is from Him. He only is my rock and my salvation; He is my defense; I shall not be moved. In God is my salvation and my glory; The rock of my strength, And my refuge, is in God.Psalm 62: 5-7 NKJV
