When Moses was stuck at the Red Sea with the people of Israel, God commanded him to stretch His Rod over the sea for it to be parted. God was very capable of dividing that sea without the hand of Moses being stretched over it. The stretched hand had nothing to do with the opened sea. But God in His wisdom refused to split the sea without the help of Moses. The dominion of God upon the earth has been passed onto man. God therefore will always find a man who can see the impossible and believe God to do it on the earth. That man stretching their hand over the sea releases the power of God to work in that situation. When God was ready to bring the Red Sea back in place, He still told Moses to stretch forth his hand for the sea to return. And it was so.
It’s about your personal situation here. Stretch out your hand over it figuratively and allow God to work signs and wonders in you. The things you give to God will surely see the grace of God. The things you keep to yourself will no doubt be yours without God’s intervention. Stretch out your hand by faith and see the Lord do glorious things in you. Give that situation to God and He will come through on your behalf.
SCRIPTURE READING: Exodus 14:27—29
And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and when the morning appeared, the sea returned to its full depth, while the Egyptians were fleeing into it. So the Lord overthrew the Egyptians in the midst of the sea. Then the waters returned and covered the chariots, the horsemen, and all the army of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them. Not so much as one of them remained. But the children of Israel had walked on dry land in the midst of the sea, and the waters were a wall to them on their right hand and on their left.
Dear Jesus, I stretch out my hand by faith to see your glorious things in me. May the things I give you surely see your grace. I now believe that everything is under your control in Jesus’ name. Amen
