Through it All

2020. From here on we will think of 2020 as a bad dream, a nightmare, a year of setbacks and unforeseen challenges, but it’s not over yet. For me it was a year of issues one after the other, especially my health. Looking back I couldn’t imagine not having the Lord by my side. The hope I had, the joy I’ve had after a fearful night. Through it all it has strengthened me.

The Israelites was in a similar situation – setbacks. In exodus 13:17 we read that God could’ve led the Israelites a different route, an easier route. But He chose a route that had an obstacle that would be placed between their enemies and the Promised land. the Red Sea.

We can only imagine the fear and uncertainty they were facing at that moment. Their enemy, the Egyptians, were closing in on them from behind. The Red Sea, an immovable obstacle, was before them. They had no other options.

But God.

Suddenly and unexpectedly, He split the Red Sea. He decimated their enemy before their very eyes. And on the other side they rejoiced. Moses wrote a song of celebration and God gave strength to His people.

Do you believe God can part the Sea that’s in front of you? All He is wanting you to do is just stand still and see the salvation of the Lord. Wait and see what He is going to do next. He will get you through it, He will see you through it and He will guide you through!

As thou hast been, thou forever will be

November 3rd was a day that altered the future. But rest assured that one thing will never be altered is the reign of Jesus. He is king, He rules and He has the Earth as His footstool. He will still be worthy no matter who wins. He will not be affected by what happens. Will we?

How will we be altered? Will we complain of whoever wins? Will we have opinions? Of course, but we must have our eyes not fixed on man but on Jesus. Mans power is limited, but God’s power is unlimited. He changes not, His faithfulness shall change not. Will I respect and pray for our next president? Yes I will. But will I let what my eyes see and what my ears hear from the next leader in office alter my view on God? Of course not.

“Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.” – Psalm 20:7
