Exodus 14:13 (NIV) ~ Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the LORD will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again.”

Exodus 14:13 (NIV) ~ Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the LORD will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again.”

Wow! What a powerful verse to start you with, what an amazing verse, full of power and prophetic meaning. Here, you have the Israelites being perused by the Egyptians and God brings about a mighty deliverance. Now, let me break this down and bring a new meaning to this astonishing verse. This whole chapter is about crossing the Sea, or the put it another way crossing over. The Israelites crossed over the Sea on dry land.

They crossed over from slavery into freedom,

They crossed over from their past into their future,

They crossed over from lack into the promises of God,

They crossed over from the Land of Egypt into the land of Canaan.

Furthermore, as they crossed over, their past was swept away, never to be seen again. No longer could the enemy torment them, bully or condemn them, for their past had been swept away.

My friend, can you see how our text can apply to your life today? Jesus said in John 5:24 (NIV), “I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life.” When you receive Christ Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, the enemy will always try to pursue you to get you turn back, or even destroy you before you begin to even step into the promises of God for your life.

You have crossed over from slavery and sin, to freedom in Christ Jesus,

You have crossed over from your past into your future in Him,

You have crossed over from spiritual lack into every blessing in the riches of Christ Jesus,

You have cross over from the darkness of Egypt into the glorious light of the Kingdom of God,

You have crossed over from death to Life in Christ Jesus.

His blood has swept all your sins away, never to be seen again. God is truly a God who can save, deliver and set free. Now that you have crossed over, step into the promises of God in your life in your spiritual land of Canaan.

God bless you my friend, Matthew.
