On Strategies in Difficult Times

10 God-given strategies in difficult times 
from The Red Sea Rules by Robert J. Morgan

 1.  Realize that God means for you to be where you are (Ex. 14:1-2).
 2.  Be more concerned for God's glory than for your relief (Ex. 14:3-4).
 3.  Acknowledge your enemy, but keep your eyes on the Lord (Ex. 14:5-9).
 4.  Pray! (Ex. 14:10)
 5.  Stay calm and confident, and give God time to work (Ex. 14:13-14).
 6.  When unsure, just take the next logical step of faith (Ex. 14:15).
 7.  Envision God's enveloping presence (Ex. 14:19-20).
 8.  Trust God to deliver in His own unique way (Ex. 14:21-22).
 9.  View your current crisis as a faith builder for the future (Ex. 14:30-31).
10.  Don't forget to praise Him (Ex. 15:1-2).

  1. Thanks girl!! We have been rather beaten down since returning a couple of weeks ago because of house issues. NOT what we were expecting and definitely difficult despite the heat. UGH! Anyway, just these last few days do I feel like we are starting to see Him in all of it although He always has been there and can be thankful for each step. Sometimes it just becomes SO OVERWHELMING. Just took awhile to work through our feelings/reactions/faith. And then I read your post and it touched my heart and encouraged me to continue as HE has been doing these last days! Again, thanks for sharing!!!
