John, Pat and Chris encourage us to not let your situation influence you but instead allow what you know of God to influence your situation. They share how the Israelites were gripped with fear when they thought they were at the end of their rope and that the Egyptians were going to kill them. In Exodus 14:13 Moses boldly told them not to be afraid and that they will see the deliverance the Lord would bring them. When you face a trial, hardship, setback or challenge don’t magnify your situation, magnify God. Don’t apply common sense principles to a not common, extraordinary God. Trust God to do what He does, to make a way where there is no way.
