""I know that the Lord has given you the land ... For we have heard how the Lord dried up the water of the Red Sea before you ... when we heard it, our hearts melted and no courage remained in any man any longer because of you; for the Lord your God, He is God in heaven above and on earth beneath."" (Joshua 2:9-11)
There are many half-hearted Christians who are not walking in the Spirit. They bear the name of Christ, but there is no visible evidence of Him in their daily lives. Sadly, they create a negative impact for the gospel, as if being a Christian makes no real difference.
But there are many authentic believers who walk out of Egypt in the power of the Spirit. They follow Christ by faith, facing Red Seas and seeing them part, enemies and seeing them fall, and needs and seeing them met by the power of God.
Such men and women are used by God to show the world who God really is. They are not creating a reputation for God, but displaying it They become the conduits for the miraculous God to be on display.
And when God is REALLY seen through a surrendered believer, or group of believers, it has a powerful effect on all who watch. For they have rarely seen God in full measure in the lives of those they know.

Although he was a godly and greatly used man of God, King David sinned grievously. For all time, his failure with Bathsheba has been recorded as a tragic warning.
But David’s confession was just as public. Spurgeon said a man could be used again when his confession is as notorious as his sin.

Many men cannot handle spiritual success. When God blesses them, if they are not careful, they will begin to attribute to themselves what God and others have accomplished in their lives.
It is a great temptation to read your own press clippings.
