When It Looks Impossible


In Exodus 14 the Isrealites were stuck between the sea before them and their former slave master’s coming to recapture them. It was an impossible situation.

“But Moses told the people,

 “Don’t be afraid. 

Just stand still and watch the LORD rescue you today. 

The Egyptians you see today will never be seen again. 

The LORD himself will fight for you.

 Just stay calm.”

‭‭Exodus‬ ‭14:13-14‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Hemmed in by the mountains on both sides,  they had no way out and no way forward. Their new found freedom seemed fleetingly short and ultimately doomed. 

They knew that God had delivered them from slavery but little more. They had not been free long enough to learn how powerful He is. They didn’t know that He would fight for them, split the sea before them and rescue them from an impossible situation. 

They did not know God…yet.

“When the people of Israel saw the mighty power that the LORD had unleashed against the Egyptians, they were filled with awe before him. They put their faith in the LORD and in his servant Moses.”
‭‭Exodus‬ ‭14:31‬ ‭NLT‬‬

When you don’t want to go back but don’t know how your going to go forward, trust God and:

1. Don’t be afraid (don’t let fear dictate your decisions).

2. Stand still and watch the LORD rescue you(stop trying to fix the situation yourself. Let God work).

The LORD himself will fight for you. 

When it looks impossible, God is not punishing you, He is teaching you more about Himself.
