Standing On the Edge

Yesterday we talked about Moses, the People of God, the Red Sea and the army of Egypt.  Imagine standing up against the impassable Red Sea, the army of Egypt chasing you down and some guy named Moses leading you to what seems like an impossible situation.  But, God provides a path.  Not only that, the path has dry ground.  The water parts and the path is dry.
For some of us, we feel like we are in a situation with no way out.  We are lost.  We are hurt.  We are suffering. God always provides a path.  The tough part, the path is not always the path we want to take.  Imagine walking through the Red Sea, water on both sides.  Do you think anyone questioned how long that water would stay up?  Did anyone get halfway through and then decide to turn around?
While hiking in Yosemite a few weeks ago we were following a pretty clearly marked path.  A couple passed us walking the same path.  About 20 minutes later, they came back by and asked us, "Is this the right path?"
We said yes.
Funny thing, we were on the way back, as were they.  They had already walked it and yet, they were lost.  They did not trust they were going the right way.
Trust in the Lord.  Follow the path.
Go in peace and go with God.
