[Unveiling His Glory]
When Pharaoh’s horses, chariots and horsemen went into the sea, the LORD brought the waters of the sea back over them, but the Israelites walked through the sea on dry ground. ( Exodus 15:19 )
The Egyptian army had been chasing the Israelites down to the bank of the red sea. Before the red sea, the Egyptians seem advantaged as they were pursuing a nation made predominantly of weak men with slaves mentality. Suddenly the two groups, the Egyptians and the Israelites came to the bank of the red sea. At this point they were facing the same crisis. And even though they came before the same crisis, the Israelites were still more scared because of their servitude mentality. There are times, when even the seemingly mighty faces the same crisis as the weak [Covid-19 tells it well]. But then, it was right there at the mouth of the red sea that the Israelites would see their unknown advantage which was God. There is no general formula for getting out of a crisis. The way out of a crisis was always individualized. But the surest way out of a crisis is by revelation. So then the time came to walk by revelation (faith) rather than by sight. The Israelites walked right through the sea as if they were walking on dry ground. The Egyptians, thinking the way out of a crisis was a universal formula walked after the order of the Israelites but they were swallowed up by the sea. Here is our lesson, in a crisis, don’t imitate your neighbour, whether they are friends or enemies. Stick to revelation, inspiration and the leading of the Holy Spirit.
Prayer_Bead: God of all creation, whose oceans roar out His glory and whose rivers cry out His praise, thank you for giving me the secret to getting out of every crisis.
