1- The Lord will :
Blessed is the man who makes the Lord his trust ( Psalm 40 : 4a )
We have a lot of problems in our life, a lot of worries, a lot of deceptions, a lot of tests etc. To win these situations there is only one way ! The Trust in God our Lord !
To trust in God need humility and Faith :
To accept that all tests and all sufferings come from God who has control on every circumstance. So I've no reason to be afraid because I am a son of God and my Lord knows the future. Only the Lord's will has to command us - christians, neither anarchy nor democracy ( Pleased to the Lord 2012 and 2015 )
2- Prayer gives peace :
We don't need peaceful situation to rest. It depends especially on our soul. David, the king, was surrounded by ennemies, but he could write : « My soul finds rest in God alone » ( Psalm 62 : 1 )
Most of times, we are anxious and tense, because we don't take time to talk truly and calmly to the Lord. We don't take time to pray. To avoid fear & weakness, we have to put all things into God's kindness. It's a faith and confidence in God. This act becomes easy when we do regularly our prayer. This habit gives us a deep serenity. It's the proof to show us that we keep God's Word in our heart. How to taste the Lord's goodness without approaching Him ?
The evil continues his work, so we must too continue to pray. Let's learn to persevere in the entreaty ! ( The Good Seed 2005 )

3- Delivrance is from God :
God sees and knows the people's suffering. God doesn't ignore them and He wants to give us rescue. His people suffer from slavery. Did God use Moses'wisdom for rescuing His people ? No. He didn't want to use the « Pharaoh's daughter's son » but those who has been changed by Him during 40 years in the desert ; God used a poor shepherd who keeped his father-in-law sheeps ( Exodus 3 : 1 ). All the eldest sons of Egypt were died after God's judgement. How did Israelites'sons escape for this judgement ?
Just to hear God : to kill sheep, to take some of its blood and to put them on the sides and on the tops of the door-frames of their houses ( Exodus 12 : 5-8 ). The Israelites'way was stopped by the red sea whereas Pharaoh's chariots and army runed after them. It was not a problem :
Just they have to hear God again. God said to Moses : « Raise your staff and stretch out your hand over the sea to divide the water so that the Israelites can go through the sea on dry ground » ( Exodus 14 : 16 ). So the Israelites could go through the sea then after the waters flow back over the Egyptians and their horsemen who pursued the God's people.
How to fall down Jericho's big wall ?
Is it with using cunning, or using power or using treachery ? NO,
Always just to hear God : with making many marches around the city and blowing the trumpets ( Joshua 6 : 1-5 ). After this strange method was the delivrance ( The Good Seed 2002 )
