And the Angel of GOD, which went before the camp of Israel, removed and went behind them; and the pillar of the cloud went from before their face, and stood behind them: And it came between the camp of the Egyptians and the camp of Israel; and it was a cloud and darkness to them, but it gave light by night to these: so that the one came not near the other all the night. And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the LORD caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided. And the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea upon the dry ground: and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left.
And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand over the sea, that the waters may come again upon the Egyptians, upon their chariots, and upon their horsemen. And Moses stretched forth his hand over the sea, and the sea returned to his strength when the morning appeared; and the Egyptians fled against it; and the LORD overthrew the Egyptians in the midst of the sea. And the waters returned, and covered the chariots, and the horsemen, and all the host of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them; there remained not so much as one of them.
And Israel saw that great work which the LORD did upon the Egyptians: and the people feared the LORD, and believed the LORD, and His servant Moses. (Exo 14:19-22, 26-28, 31)
GOD moves to deliver His people, with protection behind and salvation before them. GOD stands behind the children of Israel and thwarts the enemies advances, and goes before them as He opens the sea in front so that they go forth on dry land. Despite their cries of fear, GOD is never late, and never caught unawares. He knows the needs of Israel, and His plans for Egypt, and will accomplish the deliverance of His people in His time and according to His will, even the destruction of Egypt in the waters of the Red Sea, while Israel is safe and dry.
We may not always understand His will, or His timing during a crisis, and GOD may choose not to reveal all of His work even afterward, but we can trust His hand is always with us to do of His good pleasure. He knows us better than we know ourselves, and He knows what it will take to deliver us, to conform us to the image of His dear Son, and He knows what others need that we may be able to minister to them when we are obedient to His call and direction.
We can understand and know His will for His Church here on earth today, even if we aren't aware of the individual details. We trust Him to take care of us while we minister to the hurting and in need. We trust Him to conform us to Christ through His Word and the discipleship of the Church. We trust Him as He has already commissioned and commanded us to, as we go, take the Gospel of Jesus Christ and faith in His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary, to this lost and dying world that they might hear and believe, and believing have life in His Name.
For GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. GOD calls you to trust Him and what He has already done for you to pay your sIn debt. Just as He delivered Israel through the Red Sea, He has provided the only way of reconciliation with GOD with forgiveness and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, to give you a new life in Christ. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life, now and always.
