It was last night, at 11pm, that I really saw the light at the end of the tunnel. The Bible passage I read yesterday included this verse:
Exodus 14:14…14 The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.”
If that doesn’t give you hope for the future, I don’t know what will. Here are the children of Israel, finally freed from their slavery to the Egyptians and leaving Goshen after 400+ years, and what do they see but the Red Sea in front of them and the Egyptians in their chariots in full pursuit behind them? A hopeless situation to an observer who was not privy to the thundering proof of God’s sovereignty that had just taken place in Egypt. And yet God tells them, “I will fight for you, you need only be still.”
There are days when that voice is so trampled in my own conscience that I can not hear it, but I heard it last night. At 11pm, and it gave me hope.
