See the Difference

Moses was a man from a cursed tribe (Genesis 49:5-7), and yet he was used by God to lead the Israelites out of Egypt. We are a people under the curse of sin, and yet Jesus Christ leads us out of bondage because of His perfect identification. He turned our curse into a blessing (Deuteronomy 23:5; Nehemiah 13:2) by becoming a curse for us (Galatians 3:13). We are led out of bondage by a Spirit that leads us in all truth. A big problem is that many people do not hear what the Spirit of God says and therefore live without the freeing application of life. They never reveal the blessing. They do not remember what God said, and they do not exercise faith in what He is doing. What God says will relieve people of who they are.

See who remembers what God says and see who forgets, and you will see the difference between the curse and the blessing. One waits with the promise while the other allows the passing of time to nullify his belief in the promise. Israel did not wait with God for what had been promised. When they did not receive what God had promised, they proved they were not occupied with the Promisor. Instead of being occupied with the plan and purpose of the Promisor, anxiety became their occupation and they lived without life and without a promise.

Situations will not give you patience to wait for the promise. Only fellowship in the Promisor’s own patience gives you the grace to discover Him in the seeming delays of His plan.
