Red Sea Faith

January 1, 2019 | Author: | Posted in F, New Beginnings, R

Today’s devotional reflection on New Beginnings is about: Red Sea Faith.

10 “When Pharaoh drew near, the people of Israel lifted up their eyes,
    and behold, the Egyptians were marching after them;
    and they were in great fear. And the people of Israel
    cried out to the Lord;”

    – Exodus 14:10, RSVCE | NJB

Red Sea Faith (New Beginnings Devotional Reflection)

The Israelites had been freed from Egyptian captivity after four hundred years. God had done a series of miracles to set them free. Now, they were journeying away from everything they’d known.

For the first few miles, the journey must have felt exciting. But as the hours passed, doubts crept in. Where would they go? How were they going to survive the harsh desert climate? Where would they find food and water? What was God doing in the middle of all this?

Then the news comes—the Egyptians have decided to pursue them. They’re hemmed in by the Red Sea on one side and the cruel army on the other. They panic, demanding to know from Moses if God has led them this far only to let them die.
Have you ever stood in the same place? God led you out of one place but now you’re dealing with new terrors.

Maybe God delivered you from an abusive marriage but now you’re worried about how you’re going to raise your children as a single parent. Maybe God delivered you from an addiction but now you’re overwhelmed at the thought of sobriety.

What looked like a promising new beginning seems to be another ending…or is it? God used the Red Sea to show His power and strength. Just as He made a way for the Israelites, He can make a way for you. Lean into Him in the middle of your wilderness journey.

God, I thought this was a new beginning but
now it feels like an ending. Please give me faith
to trust You during this time. Remind me again that
You always come through during the Red Sea moments.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
