This month's message: 


Reading: Exodus 14: 19 – 31

“What do I do now, God?” I can hear Moses asking when he learns that Pharaoh’s army is in pursuit of the Israelites. At times he hasn’t known which way to head or what to do next. Now his people have given in to fear; they prefer to go back to Egypt and suffer under Pharaoh’s oppression rather than to starve and die in the wilderness. But Moses has established a pattern of looking to God for answers. Moses has learned that God will not leave him alone. He knows that God will protect the Israelites; God’s angel moves between them and their enemy during the night. When Moses obeys God and stretches out his hand over the Red Sea, God separates the waters; the Israelites walk through on dry land. With another stretch of Moses’ hand, their enemies are swallowed up by the returning waters, and “not one of them remained.”

How often have we been lost on a busy highway or tormented by a seemingly dangerous pursuer or unable to find our way out of a pressing problem? The easiest route was to give in to fear and to wait for whatever would come. Or perhaps we thought we might fight back in anger. Certainly, we felt alone.

Jesus prayed in the garden of Gethsemane, knowing his enemies were crowding in on him. We can almost hear him ask, “What do I do now, God?” Yet knowing he would not be left alone, he submitted his will to God, leaving us with the same assurance that was given to the Israelites at the edge of the Red Sea: “The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to keep still”.

PRAYER: Lord, Jesus, help me to replace the daily fears of my life with your assurance that you are always with me. Amen.
