Exodus 15:2, “The Lord is my strength and song, And He has become my salvation; He is my God, and I will praise Him; My father’s God, and I will exalt Him.”
Could any night have seemed so dark to Moses? Pharaoh had relented and said, “Go,” but now he had a million people traveling with him, along with their flocks and herds. Now, they found themselves facing the Red Sea. They camped in a spot precisely chosen by God. There was no way to cross the sea. The waters were deep, wide and swiftly flowing.
They could not move forward; neither could they turn back. Pharaoh had sent an army of 600 hundred chariots and horses to force them to return to Egypt.
The enemy was on their back, nevertheless, throughout the long night the light of God’s presence was with His people (as always). And then God’s command came, “Moses, take your rod, stretch it out and waive your hand over the sea.” Moses rose to obey, and as he did what God said, the waters of the Red Sea began to move. All that night a strong east wind drove a wedge into the sea pushing the waters to the north and south, making the ground on the bottom of the sea hard and dry.
A path now existed where there was none before!
Moses led his people down the path and they continued moving forward till they reached the other side.
God had made a way (path) where none existed before. Thank God, He has and will always do this for His people.
Today may very well be the day when the dark waters part for you.
God is moving now to make a way for you. Be ready to walk in it. As He leads follow, believe me He knows the way.
Remember, even when your back is to the wall, God has a way of escape.
May God bless all!-Bishop Wheeler
