“And the Lord said unto Moses. Wherefore criest thou unto me? speak unto the children of Israel, that they go forward:” (Exodus 14:15 KJV).What a command! To go forward! I can imagine how the Israelites must have felt as they were pursued by the Egyptian army, with nothing facing them but the wide open sea! Afraid. Crying. Complaining. Throwing accusations toward Moses. My God, what were they to do?
When faced with seemingly no way out, I’m sure many of us have shouted from one time or the other, “Oh, Lord, what am I to do?” Yet and still, when the Israelites had gone as far as their physical eyes could see, God told Moses to tell them to go forward! Isn’t that just like our God? He’s not a God that turns back. He will not lead us to the shore and leave us hanging, with no way of escape. As He was with the Israelites to open a way through the Red Sea, so is He with us.
So as you continue to press your way forward in spite of not seeing a way out, look to Jesus. He has a way for you and me, as we face the turbulent seas of life. God says go forward and see His Salvation; His deliverance. Keep going. Don’t turn back. It’s no time to retreat. If we keep the faith, we will discover God has a way out for us. He is the way, the truth. and the life.
I will keep on thanking God for encouraging me to keep going forward in Him. By Hertistine Washington/keeponthanking.com
