UV 1656/10000 Sharing the Awe
Fear and dread shall fall upon them; by the greatness of thine arm they shall be as still as a stone; till thy people pass over, O LORD, till the people pass over, which thou hast purchased
Exodus 15 v 16
We are redeemed from those who are stronger than us in the natural. Their hearts are stony towards the Lord while our hearts are responsive and sensitive to the move of the Lord and to His Word. The Lord will deliver us from powerful foes, forces and enemies by the power of His right arm. He has bought or purchased us by the blood of His Son Jesus. He has called us from darkness to light to declare His greatness and His praises for the great things He has wrought in our lives. The heart of the enemy of our souls will become as dead and inert as stone. Though we once belonged to the enemy as we had mortgaged our souls for temporary gain or pleasure, we now belong entirely to the Lord. The awesome God makes us also share in His awesomeness.
We will pass over from death to life eternal, from the scarce life to the abundant life, from a scarcity mentality to a mentality of abundance. We will move from bondage of Egypt to the freedom of Israel. Our testimonies will drive a sense of awe and foreboding into the hearts of those who oppose us. He will make us formidable. We are a kingdom of priests, a peculiar people different from all the people on the earth. We are distinguished by our faith and the presence and power of the Lord manifest in our lives. We are a royal priesthood, holy and dear to the Lord. The Lord has transformed us who were mere stones into precious stones, a treasure that is collected.
The Lord will execute marvels, signs and wonders in our lives. In response to the work and word of the Lord, we should be a people who are zealous for good works. The Lord has purchased us at a great price and we should understand that our salvation is so great and not take it for granted or take it lightly. Whatever be our goals in our lives, the Lord will create a safe passage for us to reach those goals, clearing the opposition, the hurdles and barriers in our paths. When we are continually overshadowed by the Spirit of the Lord, we are protected, delivered, promoted, provided for and we are sanctified and enabled to be creative and productive in every aspect of our lives.
