Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the Lord caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea into dry land, and the waters were divided. So the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea on the dry ground, and the waters were a wall to them on their right hand and on their left. Exodus 14:21-22.
Thus says the Lord, who makes a way in the sea and a path through the mighty waters, Who brings forth the chariot and horse, the army and the power. Do not remember the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. Isaiah 43:16-19.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:
From where you are right now to where you want to be may seem an impossible bridge to cross—you may not see how you can get there, but I have given you My Son to come into your gap and fill up the lack.
Do not give in to despair, do not give up your dream, do not give up your confidence in Me, it has great reward.
I can make a path through the sea.
The question is whether you are prepared to trust Me enough to walk through the sea to get there. I opened the Red Sea for the Israelites to escape destruction from Pharaoh’s army but they still had to go through with a wall of water standing threateningly close on either side. Exodus 14:22.
Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; you are Mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, nor shall the flame scorch you. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior; I gave Egypt for your ransom, Ethiopia and Seba in your place. Since you were precious in My sight and honored, and I love you. Isaiah 43:1-4.
Do not fear, I am with you. And I have given you power over all the forces of evil and nothing shall ever harm you. Luke 10:19.
The Promised Land looked impossible to attain on the resources that the Israelites had, but I had given it to them and prepared a way in advance. They had only to trust Me enough to walk on that way each day. If they had, I would have knocked down their enemies one by one and enlarged their territory each day until suddenly they had the whole land. And that was what I did with the Israelites who finally trusted Me enough to go forward into the land, but the first generation out of the slavery of Egypt did not.
In most cases you do not receive the full reward all at once. It takes faith and patience to arrive at the goal. You have only to walk each day in the good deeds I prepared for you in advance and keep the same diligence to the end that you began with.
Do not lose heart and draw back. Do not begin the race and abandon it half way through. If you just keep going, you will reach the goal and win the prize because you are the only one on your race. No one has the same plan—your lives are meant to be as unique as your fingerprints and DNA. No two are the same. So do not be comparing where you are with where others are. A tranquil heart is life to your body, but envy rots the bones. Proverbs 14:30.
If you are resting in Me with love you are where you should be. If you refuse worry and fear and rejoice in the day I have given you, you are heading in the right direction. You may seem to roam but you are headed home!
There will be days when everything looks lost and there seems to be no way out of your prison of life, but do not give up. It is darkest before the morning dawn, but the dawn always comes. Keep going until the Sun of Justice rises in your life with His healing rays and you are set free from the darkness that veils all peoples until they look to My Son. 2 Corinthians 3:14-18. Jesus removes the veil and gives you His peace and shares His joy with you so that your joy can be complete.
And this joy can only be shared when you are in His presence. And He and I are One. In My presence is fullness of joy. My Kingdom is one of righteousness, peace and joy. And My righteousness is a gift I give you in My Son, as also are peace and joy. Receive them all. For those who receive the gift of righteousness and the abundance of grace will reign in this life through My Son, Jesus. Romans 5:17.
When you love Jesus you keep His Word and then I love you just as I love Him for you are in Him and He is in Me. And We come to you and make Our dwelling with you by our Spirit in you. John 14:23.
And when you are filled with the Holy Spirit you are filled with joy. And your spirit, drawing from My Spirit, will produce love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Galatians 5:22-23. And a life filled with these is abundant. And then you need not worry about keeping the Law—for against these there is no law.
You are no longer under the Law but under grace. Sin and the curse no longer have any power over you.
I have put you in Christ and in Him you are in a free and open space filled with Light and peace. And there is joy there and singing. It is the Highway of Holiness on which the redeemed walk and enter Zion singing. No lion can come there to devour you.
How beautiful are the feet of those who walk there. Who bring tidings of good news and announce salvation (Yeshuah). Prepare you the way of Yahweh. He will return.
So no matter where you are on your journey, even if you have taken a detour from under My outstretched arms, I can lead you into the right path where you will find and live your dreams. My Spirit leads My children.
Do not feel shame or remorse any longer about lost years that you spent away from Me yielding to thoughts and feelings that were not from Me. They are paid for and washed away in the Blood of My Son and He offers you the fullness of redemption. Repent, change your way of thinking and yield to My way of doing things—My way is love and faithfulness for My Way is Jesus—seek My Kingdom and My way of putting you right with Me—and you will find your heart’s desires.
For you will find that all of My promises find their “Yes” in Jesus. All you need is in Him for a life of wholeness and victory. I make a way through the sea and He is the Way.
Yes, there is still time for your dreams. They are not gone as they seem. Just choose the best part, rest on My heart, we have eternity.
Yes, we have eternity. Isn’t that good to know? And it is glorious! Have you ever read Revelation 21 and 22? It may be the time that you began to know a little about what I have prepared for you. It is beyond all you can ask or imagine. It will give you joy unspeakable filled with glory!
I love you. I am ever present as your Helper. I can make a way where there is no way. Keep your eyes on Jesus. He will show you the Way and be at your side. I send a little Child to lead you.
