Small Obstacles, Big God

"By faith they (the children of Israel) passed through the Red Sea as though they were passing through dry land." - Hebrews 11:29

Theologians tell us that the average depth of the deepest trench in the Red Sea is just over 1600 feet tall. For perspective, the Empire State building is just over 1400 feet in height. The Bible says that the Israelites crossed through this body of water on "dry ground." Have you ever wondered what seeing the Red Sea open as it did would feel like? 1600 feet is deep. Can you imagine, looking up the sides of the waves, as God's hand kept the water from crashing back on the 2 million people who were crossing? Obstacles in life get smaller as our view of God grows bigger. Our trust in God as the One with all power and knowledge can only be what it should be when we know Him. Knowing Him happens as we spend time with Him.

Is there an aspect of who God is that you can thank Him for, despite the obstacles you're up against?

Claim The Promise

"By faith Sarah herself received ability to conceive, even beyond the proper time of life, since she considered Him faithful who had promised." - Hebrews 11:11

Have you ever wanted something? Sarah wanted to be a mother. Her womb had been shut and she was unable for 90 years to conceive. God had promised Abraham that he would be the "father of many." This was a joy for Sarah to hear and to know that God's promise would be fulfilled. When you're in your 20's, this faith is not difficult to hold. But as the years roll from the 20's to the 30's and from the 30's to the 40's, the next thing you know, you're ninety years old and this faith may start to wane. With God, we know that all things are possible. With God, the proper age to conceive does not matter. God wanted the couple to have a child and they did. Sarah believed in the faithfulness of God. What struggle are you enduring? Consider the promises of God as already occurring. Thank Him for knowing the right time to do what only He is capable of doing.

In your life, which promise of God can you claim as you face the struggles you're facing?
