“And when [the families of Jacob’s sons] had eaten up the grain which the men had brought from Egypt, their father said to them, Go again; buy us a little food.”Genesis 43:2 (AMPC)
Go again don’t sit still.
Go again don’t give
Go again Stop arguing.
Go again; trust him/her.
Many of us today are in similar situations like Israel was with his remaining sons after Joseph had held Simon as a surety to prove they are not fake.
We are sometimes in a quagmire that the only way out is forward.
The family could debate, justify and rationalize delaying going back to Egypt.
Look around you and find hope and courage as Israel did
Trust more for just one more time.
Love more for just one more time
Pray more for just more time.
Give more for Just more time.
Israel’s decision to go again yielded fulfillment
There may be some grey areas and misgivings.
God says HE knows the way through the wilderness.
All you have to do is to follow.
God said to Moses: “Why cry out to me? Speak to the Israelites. Order them to get moving. Hold your staff high and stretch your hand out over the sea: Split the sea! The Israelites will walk through the sea on dry ground. Exodus 14:15
God told them to move forward despite the challenges of the pursuing Egyptian army, the fearful mixed multitude, and the Red Sea.
The Red Sea parted,
There was a way out.
They walked across miraculously.
Though they were initially reluctant.
They went forward.
It ended joyfully.
