Your path led through the sea,
Your way through the mighty waters
though Your footprints were not seen.
Psalm 77:19 (NIV)
Maybe you don’t have an army chasing you like the Israelites did after Moses led them out of Egypt, but you may find yourself ensnared by a situation in which you feel hopelessly trapped. Perhaps you feel that your back is against the wall, and it is impossible to escape from your circumstances.
When the Israelites were cornered against the Red Sea, they were terrified and felt doomed. Moses calmed their fears with these words, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today…The Lord will fight for you, you need only to be still.” (Exodus 14:13a, 14)
If you feel doomed by your circumstances and see no possible means of escape, pray and ask God to intervene on your behalf. The same powerful Hand that parted the sea for the Israelites can provide a pathway out of your trouble. Don’t be afraid; don’t panic. God can open up a way out for you. Simply stand firm in your faith and watch the deliverance God will bring you. Follow His unseen footprints…
“But the Israelites went through the sea on dry ground, with a wall of water on their right and on their left.” Exodus 14:29
