Pastor's Blog

Preaching from the book of Exodus has been a great blessing. To see how God prepared His man for the work of delivering Israel from the Egyptian bondage and then to lead them through the wilderness should be an encouragement for all of God's people. It is a reminder to us of our limitations and God's power. Exodus 14:13 especially provides strength for the task He has entrusted us with. When the children of Israel had their backs up against the wall (Red Sea) Moses told them to "Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord". The battle is God's and we labor in His strength. It is when we attempt to do what only He can and focus on ourselves instead of Him that we lost heart and become unfruitful. So let us keep our eyes upon the Lord and remember it is His battle and we are not to grow weary in well doing.
