Delivering – October 6, 2019

Scripture: Exodus 14:10-14, 21-29

“Do not be afraid, stand firm, and see the deliverance that the Lord will accomplish for you today.”  (Exodus 14:13)

Perhaps no other story from the Hebrew texts has the drama that Moses’ story has. The people are delivered in an epic scene from their slavery. Our own deliverance, however, might feel just as dramatic when we are in the midst of it. Sometimes the way ahead appears utterly blocked and we have no power or ability ourselves to overcome it. At these moments we are faced with a critical decision: do we return to slavery and servitude, or do we allow God to make a way outa no way?
