Imagine what the Children of Israel felt as they stood with their backs to the sea and watched the army of Pharaoh thundering down upon them. Imagine the fear, the terror, the certain feeling that they were doomed and nothing or no one could prevent them all from being crushed under the might of Egypt.
It would have been very easy to feel lost, to lose all hope and to resign themselves to their certain fate. Our weak flesh can be very fatalistic. Abba challenges us to trust Him…to look to Him…to believe, to have hope and to trust. It is so easy to say, but so hard to put into practice.
We all fear…as much as we would like to think that we do not, we do. This world has it’s claws deeply embedded in us and it does not want to let go. We do not want to let go of it either, we cling to what we know because we fear what we do not know.
Our Elohim, IS the Elohim of the impossible. What did He do for the Children of Israel on that day when it looked like they were all going to die under the chariots and swords of Pharaoh’s army? He did the impossible…He made a way where there was no way. He delivered His people from the most powerful army that existed on earth at that time.
We all have our armies to face, we all have times where our backs are against the sea and the situation looks impossible. He is telling us to let go…He is ready to make what is impossible, possible. Are we ready to believe? REALLY believe? Can we stand still and see the deliverance of YHVH?
The tests are coming…and they are coming hard.
13 And Mosheh said to the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the deliverance of יהוה, which He does for you today. For the Mitsrites whom you see today, you are never, never to see again. 14 “יהוה does fight for you, and you keep still.”
Always, seek the truth…rethink, relearn, return.
