Today’s reading: Exodus 1:1 – Exodus 15:18
I always think of Humpty Dumpty when reading about Pharoah’s army in the Red Sea. ‘All the king’s horses and all the king’s men’, of course, substituting ‘Pharoah’ for ‘king’, rush after Moses–to their doom.
One item that stood out for me this time through is that the angel of the Lord joined forces with the pillar of cloud to hold back the mighty army of chariots and riders until all the Hebrew men, women, children, and livestock had safely crossed to the other side. This took all night, but the pillar and the angel kept it ‘dark’ on Pharoah’s side but ‘light’ on Moses’ side. Amazing!
The LORD God Almighty has not changed since then. He is the same today as He was during Moses’ day, and He loves each of us so much that He sent not just a pillar of cloud, but He sent His only Son. Before you meet Christ, all is dark, but once you meet Christ as Savior, all is light and joy and He makes your paths straight! No, this doesn’t mean that we don’t meet challenges like the Red Sea, but if we trust Him, we’ll cross through the troubles, and we’ll rejoice on the other side.
Do you know Christ as Savior? Now is the best time to talk to Him. And it could be your last chance. Jesus Christ died for you. Just trust in His sacrifice, ask Him to save you, and He will.
