Someone Believes in You

As I sit in front of the computer on this dreary Monday morning with flash flood warnings going off periodically, I wonder how many went to church somewhere yesterday and allowed God to change them. I’m not talking about feeling the goosebumps running down your spine or that tingle in your spirit as the Holy Ghost brushes against you, saying I’m changed. I’m talking about a real change that started because you knew you can’t stay where you are spiritually and grow in God. This isn’t a mere positive thinking excercise, telling yourself over and over that things are going to be different this time. I am convinced that when God changes you from the inside out there is something that transpires spiritually that gives you the strength and the power to get up from where you are and move to where God wants you to be.
 
Yes, it does take action on your part, but God has already made a way where there was no way and you can choose to stay where you are or move out to a fresh start and a new beginning.
 
When God heard the cry of the Israelites in Egypt He had already put in motion a plan for them to be delivered. Moses was right where he needed to be for God to speak to him, and God said I will deliver them. Now Moses, Go! But notice something with me.
 
Exodus 3:19-22 (KJV) 
19 And I am sure that the king of Egypt will not let you go, no, not by a mighty hand.20 And I will stretch out my hand, and smite Egypt with all my wonders which I will do in the midst thereof: and after that he will let you go.21 And I will give this people favour in the sight of the Egyptians: and it shall come to pass, that, when ye go, ye shall not go empty.22 But every woman shall borrow of her neighbour, and of her that sojourneth in her house, jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment: and ye shall put them upon your sons, and upon your daughters; and ye shall spoil the Egyptians.
 
1: God said that I know that the enemy isn’t going to let you go but when I’m done with him he will run you out of town.
 
2: When the devil runs you out of town you are going to find favor with him and he is going to allow you to fill your hands, with gold, silver, and clothes.
 
3: What the enemy doesn’t know is that you are spoiling him which was a military term for taking the riches of a defeated army.
 
Satan is already defeated he just doesn’t realize it yet.
 
God believes in you so much that He has already established a plan of escape from the enemy long before you knew you were ready to leave. God believes in you so much that he is going to move in your situation  and cause the to devil to let you go when you thought you owed the devil too much. But when you go, God is going to allow you to fill your hands with the spoils of war to show you that the victory is real and it can be lasting.
 
God believes in you so much that He is intrusting in your hands the very things that will glorify Him later. That silver and gold that they took with them when the Israelites left Egypt was used to build the tabernacle of God.
 
The question I often ponder is how many Israelites didn’t leave Egypt because of fear and intimidation and regretted it later? How many Israelites didn’t gather the blessings of silver and gold because or trepidation and worry? How many Israelites that left Egypt that night later regretted not having anything to give God glory and honor because they left empty handed?
 
Get up and move from where you are, God has already made a way, and when you leave He is going to allow you to spoil the enemy. But remember as you leave that bondage, take back what the enemy has stolen from you, your peace, your joy, your praise, and your victory. 
 
God believes in you and I believe in you even when you have a hard time believing in yourself. Now let’s move out and start our journey into the Promised Land, a land flowing with milk and honey.
