Let God Do His Part

Re: Verse reading–Exodus 14:1-4, 10-31; 15:1-2, 20-21 (day four)  There are some things that we are responsible to do and some things that God takes responsibility to do.  Verse 15-17 says, Then the Lord said to Moses, “Why are you crying out to Me? Tell the sons of Israel to go forward. 16 As for you, lift up your staff and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it, and the sons of Israel shall go through the midst of the sea on dry land. As for Me, behold, I will harden the hearts of the Egyptians so that they will go in after them; and I will be honored through Pharaoh and all his army, through his chariots and his horsemen.”  Dr. Bill Bright, founder of Campus Crusade had a definition for witnessing.  “Successful witnessing is simply taking the initiative to share Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit and leaving the results to God.”  Key for us is to know and do what we should be doing and letting God do what He is responsible for.  He is glorified through our obedience and trust!
