HE WILL OPEN UP THE SEA before you; you need but only to stand back and watch. The opening of the Red Sea is one of the awesomest (is this even a word??) miracles recorded in scripture. Can you imagine being there? What was it like? Walking through walls of water on dry land? Amazing!
Here’s the part of the story that I love- the Red Sea wasn’t an obstacle to God. He purposely led Israel that way. “When Pharaoh let the people go, God led them not by way of the land of the Philistines, although that was nearer; for God said, Lest the people change their purpose when they see war and return to Egypt. But God led the people around by way of the wilderness toward the Red Sea.” Exodus 13:17-18a What does this mean to you? God has no obstacles. What you see as an obstacle, God sees as a way through.
That thing that hinders you, God says, “Stand fast and watch what I will do.” Now, notice that they were following God. Go your own way and you will drown in that same Sea. But following God, all things are possible. He has no limitations. There is no boundary too great to overcome. If you are following the God that made the sun stand still, what can He not do in your life? Either let Him lead you and believe He will do what He said He would do, or tell Him He cannot. He either has you in His hands or He doesn’t. Stop just believing in God- believe God. Put your faith in Him alone, not your circumstances. Trust His ways and His timing, you cannot always trust your eyes. Trust that He knows where He’s leading you. He does all things well. #runyourrace
