Walls Of Water
On their right and on their left...
Exodus 14:21-23; 14:26-30
21 Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and all that night the LORD drove back the sea with a strong east wind that turned it into dry land. So the waters were divided, 22 and the Israelites went through the sea on dry ground, with walls of water on their right and on their left.
23 And the Egyptians chased after them—all Pharaoh’s horses, chariots, and horsemen—and followed them into the sea.
26 Then the LORD said to Moses, “Stretch out your hand over the sea, so that the waters may flow back over the Egyptians and their chariots and horsemen.” 27 So Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and at daybreak the sea returned to its normal state. As the Egyptians were retreating, the LORD swept them into the sea. 28 The waters flowed back and covered the chariots and horsemen—the entire army of Pharaoh that had chased the Israelites into the sea. Not one of them survived.
29 But the Israelites had walked through the sea on dry ground, with walls of water on their right and on their left. 30 That day the LORD saved Israel from the hand of the Egyptians, and Israel saw the Egyptians dead on the shore.
You might be one of two things, either walking through your Walls of Water experience, or you just came out of it.
If you are currently walking through,
You have walls of water to your right and to your left. You hear this powerful force of water gushing around you and it frightens you. As you’re walking, you think at any moment this can come crashing down because this isn’t normal! Behind you, your enemy is advancing. Your enemy has a whole army chasing you and you have the nerve to walk through walls of water as your way of escape. You didn’t go through something simple like a hiding place to get away from your enemy, or any other normal situation. You walked through Walls of Water.
If this is you, don’t focus on who or what is chasing you, focus on your walk and that you’re moving beyond what can harm you. You’re moving through what would normally DROWN you! You’re following God as you make it to the other side!!
Or, you may have already walked out of this experience but you are just realizing what God has brought you through, the magnitude of His POWER and what it took to bring you this far.
Those same Walls of Water that you WALKED THROUGH unharmed were the same Walls of Water that overpowered your enemies! But when you walked through them you may have only saw your own fears. You may have only thought about everything that could go wrong, and you may have saw these Walls of Water not as the miracle that they were because you were distracted by what dangers they could have been.
But GOD. He had a purpose and a plan all along and the driving force of bringing you out is because He loves you and heard your cries and wants to bless you.
Our God is a BIG GOD and will move a SEA just to be good to you. Remember who you belong to and take on this new week with a mindset of PURPOSE. Your Walls of Water are there to provide a road for you to walk to your next destination. So do just that, Keep. Moving. FORWARD. Trust God every step of the way.
Hope you have a Blessed Week and Continue to get Spiritually Fed!
