Red Sea Road

I recently finished a study on the book of Exodus. I am always amazed that no matter how many times I study the scriptures, the Lord uses the same scripture to teach me different things. The Lord shows me what He wants me to see, depending on what I am walking though at that time.

When we read Hebrews 4:12, “For the word of God is living and active,” or 2 Timothy 3:16, “All scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,” it helps us understand the fact that the Father loves us and uses His word to speak to us, in any circumstances.

Once again as I read through Exodus, I saw myself (and I am sure others do as well) begging God for deliverance, just as the Israelites were. For the Israelites, it was from bondage; for us it could be a thousand different things. I am sure you can insert whatever here_________. And Then God Moves! But…. We find ourselves on the Red Sea Road. The enemy is behind, and the sea is in front of us. It looks like there is no way out. So now we must decide how much faith we have, and the Father whispers, “do you trust me?” The thing is, we actually have a choice. So maybe the real question is not how much faith do you have, but do you trust Him?

I came across this song, “Red Sea Road” by Ellie Holcomb while going through this study. Here are some of the lyrics.
How do we go on?
We will sing to our souls
We won’t bury our hope
Where He leads us to go there’s a Red Sea Road
When we can’t, see the way
He will part the waves
And we’ll never walk alone
Down a Red Sea Road
How, can we trust
When You say You will deliver us from
All, of this pain, that threatens to take over us
Well, this desert’s dry
But the ocean may consume
And we’re scared, to follow You
Oh, help us believe
You are faithful, You’re faithful
