EVERY SUNDAY AT 8:30, 10, & 11:30AM

Day 17 - Prayer and Fasting

Most of us have heard of how Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt and they ended up at the Red Sea. The sea was in front of them and the Egyptians were behind them; it seemed there was no hope of finding a way out. We often forget how God turned Moses’ greatest obstacle into his greatest opportunity for success. It was because of the Red Sea that the Egyptians were defeated, and the Israelites were set free.

Obstacles are a part of life, and they always seem to throw themselves at us when we are trying to do something for God, or take an opportunity to innovate. The obstacles will look different for each of us, but if God is in it, we can trust that our obstacles are actually opportunities in disguise.
Every Red Sea we face is an opportunity for God to innovate through us so we [and others] can go where He has called us to go for our greater freedom, and His glory. 
Scripture Focus: Read Exodus 3 
Key Verse: Exodus 3:11 

Journaling Guide: 
  • What obstacles are you facing at this time? 
  • What does He want you to know about them and how can we see them as opportunities for success? 

Prayer Focus: 
  • Pray and present your obstacles to God and write down what you think, hear, see or feel as you pray. 
  • God told Moses His name was “I AM”. Whatever you lack, He is. What do you lack that God can be or provide for you?
  • PRAY FOR OUR CHURCH: Expand Our Vision Jeremiah 29.11; John 16.13; Revelation 3.7-8; I Corinthians 16.8-9
    • Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal to you what THE Great “I AM” has planned for your life. Ask God how what he has planned for you will be of benefit to others.
    • Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal to our church leadership God’s open doors for ministry and evangelism, and give them the courage to overcome any obstacles that would hinder future ministry.
