MEMBER'S THOUGHTS

The Red Sea Today...

When the Israelites left Egypt, the Egyptians had a change of heart and wanted them back. The Israelites were fleeing slavery by the Egyptians.  A life on bondage and slavery was chasing them, closing in on them, but God had a plan.  Exodus 14:21-22 “21 Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the Lord caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea into dry land, and the waters were divided. 22 So the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea on the dry ground, and the waters were a wall to them on their right hand and on their left.”.  The Egyptians followed, and, God released the waters and the Egyptians were killed.


God parted the Red Sea and the Israelites escaped their pursuers.  Walked across on dry ground.  Only He could deliver them from their enemy.  Their deliverance was to His glory.  


Today we are chased by our own version of "Egyptians", addiction, abuse, fear, anxiety, insecurity, self-doubt, guilt, our past, all these chase us every day.  All of these pursue us to put us back into bondage.  Back into slavery.  But, on that cross, a “Red Sea” of salvation and redemption flowed, washing over these enemies that pursue us.  Forever breaking the bondage that sin has over our lives.  1 Peter 3:18 “For Christ also died for sins once for all, the just for the unjust, so that He might bring us to God, having been put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit;”


Even today, we can walk over that "dry ground", and let that Red Sea of salvation wash away all those things pursuing us in our life, our Egyptians, that want to hold control over us.  


Just a thought…
Nobody knows what it’s like...right?

Nobody knows what I’m going thru.  Nobody understands the pressure and stress I have right now.  My life is complicated. You wouldn’t get it.

We have a unique way to feel as though we are the first one to have a struggle.  We like to think that we have a corner on the market of pain. Nobody will understand our “unique” problem.  We have to get thru this on our own.

The enemy wants us to feel alone.  To isolate us. Cause us to withdraw from those around us.  Cause us to be vulnerable. But...do we? Do we have to struggle alone?  Are our problems really as unique as we think they are?

Hebrews 4: 15-16 “For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”  No, we are not alone. No, our problem is not unique. We have One who understands. We have one who longs to help us. One who died for us.

As we go thru life, struggles will come, but remember that we are not alone.  Go to the High Priest who sympathizes with us, and whos mercy and grace will help in our time of need.
