Life in the tough moments

The evening express 06

 By: Otim Brian Sundison

Think about this, when the israelites were moving from Egypt to the promised land, they walked through the desert, dangerous wilderness. God didn't take them through the smooth path, no vehicles, no money, eating the same kind of food, day in-day out.

All they had was a pillar of cloud guiding them during the day and fire during the night. Where the cloud stopped, they stopped, when it moves they would also move, in simple terms, they were guided by it.(Exodus 13:21).  And yet they ended up being successful in everything and won every battles despite the challenges they went through.

I believe that you only need the pillar of cloud and fire, it doesn't matter what is lacking, you only need his guidance. 

There times when things will seem to have come to it's end, the door is finally closed and you are now sure, there is nothing you can do. That is the time God will show up the most.He said, my power works best in your weakness.(2 Corinthians 12:9)

When the israelites had just left Egypt, they traveled through a path that brought them to the red sea, there was nothing to use to cross over, no boat, no ship, only nothing was available.

It so happened that the enemies (pharaoh and his team) remembered they had lost there slaves, and so they decided to chase after them.(Exodus 14:5)

When the israelites heard pharaoh coming and there was no way for them to escape, they knew that was the end of them all. Those who had bad characters started insulting Moses and cursing him.

"Exodus 14:11 tells us that, They said to Moses, “Was it because there were no graves in Egypt that you have taken us away to die in the wilderness? What have you done to us, bringing us out of Egypt? 

¹² Is this not the very thing we told you in Egypt, ‘Let us alone and let us serve the Egyptians’? For it would have been better for us to serve the Egyptians than to die in the wilderness.” 

¹³ But Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid, stand firm, and see the deliverance that the Lord will accomplish for you today; for the Egyptians whom you see today you shall never see again. 14 The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to keep still.”

Moses knew what to do, he asked God, and God made for them the way. God used a small stick in Moses's hand to open the way.

So I encourage someone today, when you don't  see any way and challenges seem all around you. that is the time God will show up the most in your life.

God doesn't need the best tool to make you achieve the goal. With or without it, you can still make it, all you need is Him. He will use that small thing you have and use it to build something too great, that you will even feel embarrassed.

Don't repeat this mistake

Don't repeat the same mistake these Israelites did,, one day, they ran out of water, all they were saying  was "let us go back to Egypt, Moses brought us here to die in the desert". In fact, they even asked, "you mean there were no graves in Egypt, that you bring us to come and die in this place?" 

In other words, "God, you knew that you could not provid for us all our needs, but why did you choose to bring us here?"

These people only knew how to complain, they never ask, neither do they believe God can do something despite the many miracles they had seen.


I encourage you today, ask, believe and keep still. Then you will touch with your own hand and see with your own eyes, the greatness of the Lord. He is God, nothing is too difficult for him

I dedicate this song for you: Yahweh

May God grant you his special favor, no evil should ever come your way. Only blessings, in Jesus name. Amen!


Lord, God of heaven and earth, you alone are worthy to be praised. I thank you for all you have done in my life and I am eager to see more of your endless greatness in my life. Just grant me the grace. Thank you my God and Jesus our Lord . Amen.
