Notice, God told the people of Israel two things. First, that He would fight for them. Second, that they must go forward in spite of their fear. When you face the unknown it’s normal to feel fear. But that’s when you need to put your trust and confidence in God! In order for Him to fulfill His promise to you, you must obey what He has told you to do.
How should you deal with change? In three ways:
(1) Focus on its long-term benefits instead of its short-term inconvenience.
(2) Be honest about what you really feel and fear about the change, and take it to God in prayer.
(3) Keep an open attitude toward new ideas, and refuse to be influenced by rigid thinkers.
Stand on this Scripture: “Enlarge the place of your tent, and let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings; do not spare; lengthen your cords, and strengthen your stakes. For you shall expand to the right and to the left” (Isa 54:2-3 NKJV). God doesn’t change, but He moves! And in order to succeed, you must move with Him.
Exodus 14:15 NKJV
Tell the children of Israel to go forward.
