Memory Verse: Behold, I will do a
new thing; now it shall spring forth;
shall ye not know it? I will even
make a way in the wilderness, and
rivers in the desert. Isaiah 43:19
Read: Exodus 14:21-28
21 And Moses stretched out his hand
over the sea; and the LORD caused
the sea to go back by a strong east
wind all that night, and made the
sea dry land, and the waters were
22 And the children of Israel went
into the midst of the sea upon the
dry ground: and the waters were a
wall unto them on their right hand,
and on their left.
23 And the Egyptians pursued, and
went in after them to the midst of
the sea, even all Pharaoh’s horses,
his chariots, and his horsemen.
24 And it came to pass, that in the
morning watch the LORD looked
unto the host of the Egyptians
through the pillar of fire and of the
cloud, and troubled the host of the
25 And took off their chariot wheels,
that they drave them heavily: so
that the Egyptians said, Let us flee
from the face of Israel; for the LORD
fighteth for them against the
26 And the LORD said unto Moses,
Stretch out thine hand over the sea,
that the waters may come again
upon the Egyptians, upon their
chariots, and upon their horsemen.
27 And Moses stretched forth his
hand over the sea, and the sea
returned to his strength when the
morning appeared; and the
Egyptians fled against it; and the
LORD overthrew the Egyptians in the
midst of the sea.
28 And the waters returned, and
covered the chariots, and the
horsemen, and all the host of
Pharaoh that came into the sea after
them; there remained not so much
as one of them.
Another response to progress
challenging mountains is to climb it.
This will require a lot of effort,
energy and perseverance. In
Numbers 13:30, when the children
of Israel were faced with a mountain
on their way to the Promised Land,
Caleb told them, Let us go up at once
and possess it. It is good to climb
your mountain. In fact, there is a
sweet feeling when you are on top
of your mountain. Take for instance
when David stood on top of Goliath
in 1 Samuel 17:51, he felt on top of
the world. There is a joy derived
from standing on top of your
mountain. Yet, to be able to stand
on your challenges, you must first
realise your spiritual position and
placement in Christ and strive to
enforce powers vested in you. If you
are ignorant of this, standing on
your mountain may be a mirage. In
the name of Jesus, from now on, you
shall stand on your mountains.
Besides climbing the mountain, you
may choose to dig a tunnel through
it. The implication of this is that,
even though the mountain is still
physically present, you will be on
the other side. This was the
experience of the Israelites when
they got to the Red sea while fleeing
from Egypt. They could not go
forward, and they could not go
backward. But when Moses raised
his hands, God caused an East wind
to blow all night so as to create a
way in the Red sea. The sea was still
there but a way was in it (Exodus
14:21-28). To bore a hole through
your mountain, you will definitely
require the help of the Holy Spirit.
However, you could also handle a
mountain by blasting it out of the
way. This involves the use of a
dynamite to tear it down. In Joshua
6:20, when the Israelites faced the
wall of Jericho, they went round it as
instructed and shouted, and God
sent dynamite from Heaven and it
tore the fortified wall into tiny bits –
reducing it to rubbles. To experience
this, you must be prepared to
receive instructions from God on
how a particular mountain should
be levelled and adhere strictly to it.
You must also be prepared to send
your high praises to God so that He
can send a dynamite to pull down
your mountain.
Action Point
Ask God to make a way in the
wilderness for you.
