The hits just keep on coming. Its one thing after another. From family drama to broken appliances, from sick kids to overdue bills, from offended neighbors to distant friends — this life is no walk in the park. In the thick of it – all you want is the chance to burry your head in the pillow and hide from everything. Sometimes holding onto promises is like trying to hold onto the salt from the water while running for shore.
the lie: I can’t do this. I am out of hope. It isn’t worth it.
The Israelites stood up to their tyrant, Egypt. Gathering their hopes, their love, their heritage, and escaped. When suddenly before them stood an impassible ocean and closing in behind them was a vicious army capable of unspeakable harm. There in that hard, hopeless moment the Lord showed up in great majesty. Not only did He make a way across the impossible, He guarded them from behind and drowned their fears. Nothing’s changed, He has and will do the same for you.
“Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today.” Exodus 14:13
