I want to encourage you today that what you saw as a catastrophe, God is about to use as a catalyst to catapult you into your promised land. Hi friends, my name is Rachel Hale, and I want to encourage you from the word of God today. I am telling you a story from Exodus. It’s chapter 7-12. I would love for you to go and read it. It’s really amazing. God told Moses to lead the Israelites out of Egypt into their promised land, and Pharaoh would not let the Israelites go. And so God was pretty mad and He sent ten plagues onto the Egyptians and onto that land. And Moses never got distraught. He never questioned God, or questioned the promise of God to lead the Israelites out of Egypt. Moses knew that God was doing it, and He was actually using the plagues as a means to get the Israelites into their promised land.
And I want to encourage you today, you know, we faced a lot globally with the pandemic, and I want tell you right now that God is using it as a catalyst to lead His people into their promised land. The best really is yet to come. You know, Isaac Newton, he stayed at home to avoid the great plague of London. And during that time, he discovered the laws of gravity, optics, and he even invented parts of calculus during that time. So what are you doing with the time you’ve been given? Are you writing that book that God put on your heart? Or are you writing that worship song you feel led to write? Or are you spending time with family that maybe needs to spend time together? Maybe God wants to do a work of reconciliation in your family. I don’t know what it is that God has put on your heart, but I believe God wants to do a mighty work during this time. And I know this for a fact, what the enemy meant to destroy and what the world saw as a catastrophe, God will use to lead His people into our promised land.
I’m going to pray for you. Jesus, I thank you for every single person watching this video. I pray for hope to begin to penetrate each heart of every single person watching this video, Lord, and I thank you for the promised land that lies ahead of us. I thank you, Father God, for what you’re doing globally. And we set our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, for what is seen is only temporary, what is unseen is eternal. And there is an eternal good work that you are finishing in this hour. And I seal this in Jesus’ name. Amen. All right, I love y’all and I’ll see you again soon.
