Precious Disciple of Jesus Christ, the Daystar,
The Israelites were caught between the proverbial “rock and a hard place.” With Pharaoh pressing in on one side and the Red Sea on the other, they literally had nowhere to turn. When they cried out to Moses, he said, “Don’t be afraid. Stand firm and watch GOD do His work of salvation for you today. Take a good look at the Egyptians today, for you’re never going to see them again.”
Perhaps today you, too, are caught between a rock and a hard place. You may feel trapped in a seemingly insurmountable situation from which you see no way of escape. If so, I encourage you not to give up! Switch your focus from your problem to our God Who is bigger than any problem. Then, watch and see what our Big God will do for you!
God specializes in miracles. He delights in rescuing His children from seemingly impossible situations. But we have our part to play. That part is believing that God will, indeed, rescue us. This is called faith.
It is our faith that moves the hand of God on our behalf–not our whining, complaining, or self-pity. So, don’t be afraid. Stand firm in faith and watch GOD do His work of salvation for you today. As the Israelites did with the Egyptians, take a good look at your problem, for if you trust God to deliver you, there will come a day when you will never see your problem again.
Your sister in Christ,
Dr. MaryAnn Diorio
