Message for November 3, 2019 from Pastor Shirley

     I am the LORD, your Holy One, The Creator of Israel, your King.” Thus says the LORD, Who makes a way through the sea and a path through the mighty waters… (Isaiah 43:15-16)

      We read in the Bible, God led the Israelites by way of the wilderness toward the Red Sea. God than guided the people around in a large circle.  As the people camped at the edge of the Red Sea, there were mountains on one side, and the sea was on the other side. When the Israelites saw Pharaoh’s soldiers in the distance charging toward them, it appeared as though they were trapped with no apparent way out. The people cried out to Moses in despair.  But, Moses trusted God during this impossible time. “Do not be afraid. Stand firm. And you will see the deliverance of the Lord. The Lord will fight for you while you keep silent.” (Exodus 14:13-14)

       God then told Moses to tell the people of Israel to “go forward.”  Moses lifted up his staff and stretched out his hand over the sea and divided it.  God intervened, for sometimes He prefers to work in situations that some deem impossible. He dramatically caused a strong wind to blow.  The waters parted. And the people walked on dry ground, safely to the other side.

        That is what I am hearing now-you are getting ready to walk across on dry ground.  At the time you stepped and it was not time to cross over- for when you stepped out the ground was soft under your footing.  Yes there was fear and yes some confusion. But now step forward on dry ground that is taking you to the other side. Go forward and I will drown the enemy that has been harassing you.
