DEALING WITH DISASTER
When you pass through the water, I will be with you and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, nor shall the flame scorch you.
Reading about the Israelites standing on the shore of the Red Sea, we can imagine their distress over the advance of the Egyptian arm. Has God forgotten us? This question visits each of us from time to time when everything around us seems to be crumbling; the loss of a job, broken relationships or even the loss of loved ones.
It's hard to trust an invisible God. Like the Israelites in their moment of distress, we do not know God's plan; the Israelites were not expecting God to part the water before them. It would have been easy to abandon faith and become cynical. Instead, we can apply Moses' exhortation to ourselves. "Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord.The Lord will fight for you and you shall hold your peace." (Exodus 14:13-14)
God delights in carrying us through even the darkest of times. He is at work in our situation. Trust in Him and allow this promise to strengthen your spirit today.
