…the people of Israel walked on dry ground through the sea, the waters being a wall to them on their right hand and on their left. Thus the LORD saved Israel that day from the hand of the Egyptians, and Israel saw the Egyptians dead on the seashore. Israel saw the great power that the LORD used against the Egyptians, so the people feared the LORD, and they believed in the LORD and in his servant Moses.
The Lord our God is mighty! From the beginning of time He has cared for and protected His children. He has always kept a remnant for Himself. Today is no different. Look to the Creator and hold fast to His promises.
And Moses said to the people, “Fear not, stand firm, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will work for you today.
We serve an awesome God!
Matthew 6:6: But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.
This message is not a welcome to the church but an encouragement to read God’s Word and pray for the church. We have time like never before and perhaps never to be repeated. Let us as Christians use this time to draw near to God and He will draw near to you. (James 4:8).
I am sure we all miss the fellowship of meeting together but thanks to modern technology we hear the sermon and songs of praise on Sunday and can communicate on cell phones and computers.
Let us remember our Sovereign God who is always in control, omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient.
We are to rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)
“I have come to My garden, My sister, My spouse; I have gathered myrrh with My spice;
I have eaten My honeycomb with My honey; I have drunk My wine with My milk…
Eat, O friends! Drink, yes drink deeply, O beloved ones!” (Song 5:1)
Our dear Lord is singing here, rejoicing in His intimate time with us, His bride. Do you know, do you connect with this, that the Creator God is personally delighted when we take time to be closeted with him in shear mutual love?
We have entered a period of enforced separation from normal business. He’s waiting for each of us in this time. Be refreshed in the opportunity to choose His company, His feasting and recreation, His Book.
There is reason for concern for many things – and we will do what we can – but let’s embrace this one Good.
