Come and see what God has done: he is awesome in his deeds toward the children of man. He turned the sea into dry land; they passed through the river on foot. There did we rejoice in him… Blessed be God, because he has not rejected my prayer or removed his steadfast love from me!
(Psalm 66:5-6, 20 ESV)
There is a song called “Red Sea Road” that just came out this year. Its lyrics sing, “When we can’t, see the way He will part the waves, and we’ll never walk alone down a red sea road.” It sings of hardship and trials, a road that seems treacherous but that God quite literally paved. The Israelites walked it. God made sure they came to the end. We walk it. He is making sure we come to the end as well. The same God who parted waters and made the sea dry will part the waters of our fear. His love is steadfast. It hasn’t changed since the Israelites were fleeing Egypt. It is that love by which Jesus gave blind men sight, healed the bleeding woman, and rose Lazarus from the dead. Just because we do not see Bible-sized miracles every day, does not mean they are not taking place. After all, has He not raised us up from our own death in sin? His love is steadfast, sweet Christian. Rejoice in it. Even when there is a red sea before you.
Lord, thank you for being steadfast. Thank you for being continuous. I know that you who I am praying to and who is responding to me through your word and way are the same God of miracles. The same hero of the Bible and of all time. I love you, Jesus. Help me to trust you completely–no matter the road that lies ahead.
