and the Israelites went through the sea on dry ground, with the waters like a wall to them on their right and their left. Exodus 14:22
Can you imagine being a part of crossing the Red Sea? Moses calls to you and your loved ones to walk through the mighty walls of water towering well above you on each side. You have to step into the wet sandy bottom where the deep waters have been dispersed around you. I would think a lot of people would do so with mixed feelings; nervous at the threat of millions and billions of tons of water suddenly slamming upon them. After all, they have never seen this phenomenon before.
There would probably be a much smaller category of people who would boldly walk through trusting that Almighty God would hold back the water. However, my guess is that a huge majority would fall into some version of the mixed feelings category with more than a touch of fear. Aren’t these categories representative of life too?
There are times when all you can see are huge walls of angry water all around you. What do you do? God says, “Walk.” You say, “But God, I’m afraid.” God says, “Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believe” (John 20:29). In other words, God says, “Trust Me. Walk by faith and not by sight” (2 Corinthians 5:7).
The interesting part of the Red Sea crossing is that both groups passed through safely. The most important thing was not how they felt or how much confidence they had, it was that they walked by faith. That faith may have been very weak, but they walked and the outcome blew them away. The very things that were threatening them, such as the walls of water and the Egyptian Army, were taken care of. In fact, God used one threatening thing to eliminate another threatening thing.
Imagine how your view of God would have changed on that day. Imagine how His power and care would have been etched in your mind and on your heart. Dear friends, we have the same God. You have fears or things in life threatening you, then walk by faith. Trust in the God who did not spare His own Son for you and just keep walking.
In Christ,
Pastor Tim
