Waking up every morning to take one step after another to reach that place they had only dreamt about.
The place of freedom and a fresh new beginning.
The place where they would raise their children in safety and in love.
And yet there they were, standing in front of the Red Sea.
At a total dead end.
Their hope vanished.
Their fear mounted.
And they wondered if they made a mistake in following Christ.
If Moses misheard God’s calling on his life.
If all their walking and faith was in vain.
If what God promised them was too good to be true.
Because they were stuck with absolutely no way to get across.
But what they didn’t know was that the greatest “dead end” in history was not a dead end at all.
It was just one of God’s greatest opportunities to display His faithfulness once again.
To show them how He could provide for them no matter what obstacles they faced.
To prove to them that nothing in the world was impossible for Him.
Certainly not helping them cross the Red Sea.
God knew that the route He would take them on would lead them straight to that dead end.
Maybe He could’ve chosen another way.
But He didn’t.
And He doesn’t for you either.
Sometimes He allows the road you are walking on to lead you straight to a “dead end”.
To a place where you are stuck and there’s nothing more you can do take one step forward.
To a place where you can no longer rely on yourself to get somewhere and you can only depend on Him alone.
It can be a scary place.
You might begin questioning whether or not you heard God correctly and if you’re even on the right path.
You might want to give up on ever meeting that goal you wanted to reach or ending up at the place you are going to.
You might want to turn around and walk right back.
But if you find yourself at that place today I want to remind you that there are no “dead end’s” for God.
He is not limited by time, by people, or by circumstances.
He is not limited by valleys, mountains, by deserts, or by oceans.
The only way He can be limited is by you and your lack of faith in Him.
The Red Sea didn’t stop the Israelites from crossing over.
And your circumstances, your obstacle, your mountain won’t stop you from moving past your “dead end” if you have faith in God.
Where you are today is no accident or mistake.
Even if it makes no sense.
God is using the situation you are in right now to shape you and prepare you for the place He wants to bring you to tomorrow.
He will get you where you need to go at exactly the right time
Trust Him with His plan even if at the moment you are standing in front of a “dead end”.
He will help you get to the other side if you keep on believing.
Never lose hope in what He can do in your life and what mountains He’ll help you climb and seas He’ll help you cross if only you trust Him.
Be blessed and walk with faith in Christ! -Anna… ♥
