“The Lord will make a way for you where no foot has been before. That which, like a sea, threatens to drown you, shall be a highway for your escape.”
—Charles H. Spurgeon
So begins the preface to Robert J. Morgan’s, The Red Sea Rules. The book is an exploration of the principles to be found in Exodus 14 and the story of God’s redemption of Israel from Egypt.
Morgan’s contention is that the book of Exodus and chapter 14 in particular, “provides a biblical method to process difficulties by faith, in the light of God’s almighty presence, providence, promises and power (p. ix).”
“No sea is deeper than the ocean of His love. There is no army stronger than His hosts, no force greater than His throne of grace, no enemy who can overcome His direct and indirect work in our lives.
The reality of the Red Sea, in a word, is this: God will always make a way for His tired, yet trusting, children, even If He must split the sea to do it.” (p. x)
I don’t know how long it will take, but beginning Monday, I will be reviewing the book, chapter by chapter for the rest of this month. Join me for the journey.
