When The Lord Says Go Forward

December 10,2023

Exodus 14:15

And the LORD said unto Moses, Wherefore criest thou unto Me? speak unto the children of Israel, that they go forward:

Ephesians 2:10

For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

Philippians 3:13

Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,

God has a purpose and plan for everyone. That plan includes traveling to a destination chosen by God to fulfil your purpose chosen by Him for His glory. Therefore, obtaining what God puts before you requires that you move forward. You can never get to where the Lord has for you to go and do what He has for you to do by going backward.

When God delivered the children of Israel out of bondage, one of their main problems was Pharoah trying to keep them in bondage. The Bible says in Exodus 14:10 And when Pharaoh drew nigh, the children of Israel lifted up their eyes, and, behold, the Egyptians marched after them; and they were sore afraid: and the children of Israel cried out unto the LORD. The children of Israel were afraid of Pharoah and the Egyptians. In fact, they were so afraid, they wanted to go back into bondage serving the Egyptians.

That’s the same problem with so many people today, fear can hold them back from reaching the destination God has set before them. Fear can keep them stuck in what is comfortable and familiar. Fear can cause them to go back to their old ways. And fear can keep them from receiving the blessings God has for them.

But when God says go forward, there is nothing to fear. Notice there are two components to that command. The first component is to move, which means continuous motion. The second component is to move in the right direction, which is forward.

So, when God is directing or redirecting you, just continue to move forward on your journey, trusting God that He will provide everything that you need. Release any fear to the Lord. Know that He has already gone before you to prepare the way. Trust Him to take care of all obstacles that the enemy tries to put in your way. Just keep moving and go forward in the name of the Lord. God will get you there.


Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You Lord for helping us to move forward amid mounting problems. Thank You for being with us on our journeys and going before us to prepare the way. Lord, we pray that You will help us to release all fear so that we may reach the destination that You have set for us, to do the job that You have ordained. Increase our faith in You Lord. Bind the spirit of distraction that tries to stop us from reaching our appointed destination and achieving our God-given purpose. Lord, please help us to continue moving and moving in the right direction. Lord, help us to do as You command, operating in Your divine strength. Help us to go forward.

In Jesus most holy and precious name we pray, thank You Lord,
