Walking Through the Red Sea

“There is a path which no fowl knoweth, and which the vulture’s eye hath not seen.” Job 28:77There is a path which no fowl knoweth, and which the vulture's eye hath not seen: (Job 28:7)
“Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the Lord caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided. And the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea upon the dry ground: and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left.” Exodus 14:21-2221And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the Lord caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided. 22And the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea upon the dry ground: and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left. (Exodus 14:21‑22)
Have you ever felt like your circumstances are impossible? The children of Israel at the Red Sea must have felt like that. Imagine what it was like to have the impassable Red Sea in front of them and the Egyptians coming up behind them! Absolutely impossible circumstances! No  ...  they had God with them, and “with God all things are possible” (Matt.19:26). He made an out for them in a miraculous way they could never have dreamed up beforehand.
As we look at the seeming impossibility of raising a family for the Lord in these difficult last days of the church’s history on earth, let us remember that we have this same God for our Help. We may feel like our enemy, Satan, is right behind us, waiting to devour our children, and that life looks like an impassable sea as it stretches before us. However, let us look not at the problems, but to the Lord, realizing that He knows all the difficulties of life and has promised to make a way for us. It may take a miracle, but He is able! Trust Him today with your difficult child, your wayward teen, your financial difficulties, or whatever problem you face.
Think too, about what it must have been like to walk through the Red Sea on dry ground. What fears would have been in their hearts if they had looked at the walls of water towering on both sides of them! It took faith to walk there, faith that God who opened the way through the Red Sea would keep it open while they walked through. Like Peter in the gospels, they had to keep their eyes on the Lord and not on the water. Trust God for this moment, and keep your eyes on Jesus. He will carry you through the most impossible situations. He has gone before you. He is making intercession for you now and He will continue to make a way for you through your difficult situation. Nothing is impossible with Him!
