When the Red Sea saw You, O God, its waters looked and trembled! The sea quaked to its very depths…Your road led through the sea, Your pathway through the mighty waters–a pathway no one knew was there! Psalms 77:16.19 NLT
What is standing in your way? The children of Israel believed that the Red Sea was the obstacle keeping them from the promise of God. What do you believe is standing in your way?
God describes the Red Sea in a different way than the children of Israel may have. He said it was the pathway to the promise. The very thing that seemed overwhelming and impossible to deal with, God describes as a pathway. Are we seeing things the way God does? Are we looking at what is standing before us as a problem or a pathway?
What is your Red Sea? As we look at these verses in Psalms we find that what made them fearful was actually no problem at all for God. We must understand that our problems and obstacles are no match for our amazing God, either. The Red Sea saw God and trembled! Your obstacle has to do the same!
No one knew there was a pathway in the middle of a raging sea, but there was. It couldn’t be seen at first, but that is why we must see with eyes of faith. There is a pathway that you cannot see right now, but don’t let that stop you. Move forward! Boldly proclaim God’s promises for you even when things look impossible. What is impossible for man is possible with God – we can know that our God is greater than anything that tries to stand in our way.
