God knows just when we need help. He is actually ready to make His move of protection, before we even realize we need Him; before we can even comprehend the situation.
For here, the Israelites had camped at the edge of the sea. Right where God directed them. It would seem a dead end to anyone else. A place with no way out when the sound of Egyptian chariots broke the silence of the night. The Israelites looked up to see Pharaoh and all his forces bearing down on them.
But our God is able. Our God has no limits. Our God is a sea splitting, ready for anything, kind of God. And as the people crossed over on dry ground, He moved from in front of them, for there was only one way to go through the walls of water, to behind them. Now He could be their Magnificent Protector, standing constant watch between the Egyptian and Israelite forces, lighting up the night so that none of them were harmed by the enemy.
Did you realize that God will do the same for you? That He has your best interest in mind as well? And He is ready. He is able. He is mighty to save no matter what dead end you believe you are facing.
There is no enemy too large or looming for Him. God will defend you, protect you and guard you. He longs that each of us will call upon Him for help; to simply humble our hearts and cry out to Him. He is there in the darkest of nights, ready to stand between what bears down on you, keeping you safe, and protecting you, lighting your way as you journey to the other side.
from my heart...
I write as an overflow... an expression of my true love for God and with a deep desire to encourage others in their day to day lives. For we can only find peace, joy, and satisfaction when we yield to the One who yielded His life for us.
