After God’s people were miraculously delivered from Egypt, the sea, the mountains and the rocky desert loomed as obstacles to their desired destination. And yet, these obstacles became opportunities for God to demonstrate further to His people that He is sovereign over nature. God parted the sea, shook the mountains with His presence, and turned rocks into springs of water in the middle of the desert.
God is our deliverer.
Our deliverer is sovereign over nature.
No obstacle can stand in His way.
Tremble, earth, at the presence of the Lord,
at the presence of the God of Jacob (v. 7 CSB)
Father, You are our deliverer. Everything on earth is under Your control. Seas part and mountains tremble at Your command. Help me to see obstacles as opportunities to witness Your power and deliverance. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
