Red Sea Clear // Praise & Shine

The other day, I was thinking of the Israelites at the Red Sea. They had the sea before them and the Egyptians behind them. And rather than praying for their path to be clear, they complained. Of course, God parted the Red Sea, and they walked on dry ground. When the Egyptians followed in pursuit, the sea closed, and the enemy was defeated. God delivered the Israelites out of the hands of the Egyptians.

By all accounts, this was a miracle. It was clear. I call it ‘Red Sea Clear.’ They must have known that when the sea cleared and the ground was dry, God wanted them to go that way. It WAS God’s will. Wouldn’t it be nice if every time we wanted to know God’s will, He made it ‘Red Sea Clear?’

When the Israelites made it to the other side, they praised God, singing, worshiping, and thanking God for the miracle He just performed. But before too long, they started complaining again. How quickly we forget God’s grace.

We should try singing, praising, and thanking God before the sea is parted. Thank God in advance, “Lord, I know you are going to part this Red Sea. I know this, because you promised it in your Word. And I know you can’t break your Word, or your promise. I wan’t to thank you now for what You are going to do.”

When the Israelites praised, it wasn’t in faith, it was in relief. We need praise in faith being the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things that have not yet happened. And when the Red Sea parts and you see the dry ground, don’t just walk, run out in faith.
