But the children of Israel walked upon dry land in the midst of the sea…
How many times have you been faced with a “GAINT” crisis and you thought that God was just not moving fast enough? Maybe you’ve been afraid that God was going to miss some “tiny” detail, that…well, you could just help Him with? Now be honest…many, if not all of us, have at some point fretted that things would not turnout as we thought they should. Even the Israelites fell prey to that snare, remember their exodus from Egypt? Exodus 14:11 And they said unto Moses, Because there were no graves in Egypt, hast thou taken us away to die in the wilderness?
How many times have we chastised the children of Israel for their unbelief and lack of trust in God? How could they possibly have beheld all of those miracles and yet still have doubts? Where was their confidence in God and yet, we should be asking ourselves that very question. How many times have we done the very same thing? Over and over God has revealed Himself but we only see the “Red Sea”. Over and over God has proven Himself at the “Red Seas” of our life, even taking care of all the minuscule details, but we still question Him.
My friend, take courage, God not only handles the “Red Seas” but also takes care of even the minutest details. You see, God didn’t bring the children of Israel to the banks of the Red Sea for them to cross wearing muck boots! No, He provided a clear and dry path for them to cross. God is thorough and will take care of your problems too, just trust Him.
Heavenly Father, help us to never forget that You always provide, that You are truly thorough!
Song: Over and Over
Over and over again and again, God is faithful
Over and over, again and again, Through it all He’s made me able To stand and survive,
To come through alive When it sure looked like I couldn’t win, Jesus is with me So I claim the victory,
Over and over again
