I Am Your Victory | I AM Finding Your Identity in God | Exodus 14
The number one question on our minds when it comes to God’s deliverance is, “when?” Often we wonder, why the delay? Is God ever going to come through? God delays deliverance for some very good reasons. He wants to drive the doubting out of our lives so we will do exactly what the Word of the Lord says.
God Himself is your deliverer! Right now, the Lord is at work – He has a plan, and He is changing hearts. When it feels like God is delaying, remember this: He’s making you spiritually fit for what He is already planning to do. You need only to wait in faith… everything God has promised is coming! In the end there will be a greater victory. Open your Bible to Exodus 5, and learn to rest in God’s promise of deliverance.
