…When I have Gotten Me Honor…

Exodus 14:15-18

1.  The people of Israel were at an impasse – there seemed no way to escape.
2.  They had stopped moving forward due to fear (v. 13).
3.  “Fear ye not”  says Moses to the people (v. 13).
4.  They would see GOD honored that day (v. 14).
I.  GOD IS HONORED WHEN HIS PEOPLE TRUST HIM AND OBEY HIM BY MOVING FORWARD (v. 15).

II.  GOD IS HONORED WHEN WE USE THE TOOLS WHICH GOD HAS PLACED IN OUR HEARTS AND HANDS (v. 16).

III.  GOD WILL BE HONORED IN OUR PRESENT SITUATIONS OF LIFE (v. 17).

IV.  GOD WILL BE HONORED IN THE LIVES OF ALL THE PEOPLE  OF THE WORLD (v. 18).

 

Application –

i.  When God calls us to Himself He calls us to trust and obey Him by moving forward in our lives.
ii.  We recognize the tools God has given us and blessed us with; and we use them faithfully.
iii.  We trust God, and He is glorified (honored) by His work in us; not our work in the flesh.
iv.  It is by God’s work in us, through us and around us that will bring glory to God in all the world.
