I keep seeing the image of the Red Sea parted with walls of water piled on two sides with dry ground in the middle. This image first came to my mind during Sunday’s praise and worship service. Not only was the waters of the Red Sea parting a miracle but also that the Israelites didn’t encounter mud. In my own back yard when it rains there are parts of the ground that remain wet and muddy several days after the rain has gone. The ground beneath the Red Sea should have been muddy. And you know mud has a way of sticking onto your shoes and getting tracked into places that you enter- uninvited nonetheless.
No Longer Stuck
I believe some of us are entering into a season where God is going to “clean away the mud” from our souls. In places where our Red Sea has parted, He’s going to dry up the ground so that we’re no longer stuck. No longer tracking the “mud” of our past into our present or future. The Red Sea represents the hard places He has moved you out of rather that be the pain of physical abuse, sexual abuse, bad relationships, lost of a loved one, bad childhood, addictions, divorce, or whatever your Red Sea my have been. Funny thing is an event can no longer be physically occurring but yet you carry it with you emotionally or psychologically like mud on a shoe. Yet in places that you should have remained stuck or continued with muddy foot tracks, even if no where else but in your mind, God is going to wash away the mud.
You Can Leave the Past Behind
While reading an article from Prophetic Insights from Charisma by Nicki Pfeifer entitled, Five Keys for 2010, I was surprised and delighted to receive confirmation by the words she wrote regarding key #2 God is releasing an anointing to leave your past behind. She writes, “There is a special anointing for inner healing this year. There is a release of grace in the body of Christ to finally put the pain of your past behind you.” Read the entire article here.
