August 31 – The God Who Comes Through – Turning Seas into Highways

Read Exodus 14:1-31

“Can’t go over it! Can’t go under it! Can’t go around it! I guess we’ll have to go through it!”

This is a fun chant that I used with my kindergartners but it might easily describe what was going through Moses’ mind when he and the hundreds of thousands of Israelites were trapped between the Red Sea and Pharaoh’s army! God said, “Go through it!” Moses, being the spiritual man he was, did as God commanded, raised his rod and the waves parted and he led his charges through the dry sea bed safely to the other side.

One of my very first memories of going to the movie theater with my grandmother was to see the movie, The 10 Commandments. I can still see the waves rolling back to both sides as Charlton Heston raised his rod with the wind blowing through his hair and beard! The impossible became possible that day! Our God does the impossible! He will never leave nor forsake us, if we will only listen to His voice for guidance. He will part the hazards of your life and guide you through. He won’t always remove what is in your way but walk beside you as you go THROUGH it. Coming out on the other side stronger than before.

David in the 23rd Psalm says, “Even though I walk THROUGH the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil for thou art with me.”

Not just into but THROUGH!

So, when you face heartaches, disease, cancer, disabilities, or any hardship, know that God is with you. He has your hand and He won’t let go!

The lyrics of this old song say:

“God will make a way,

Where there seems to be no way.

He works in ways we cannot see.

He will make a way for me.

He will be my guide.

Hold me closely to His side.

With love and strength for each new day,

He will make a way. He will make a way!

He turns seas of trouble into highways of hope.

And those highways lead you directly to Him if you will let them.”
