I’ve heard them called “Red Sea moments.” When there seems no path forward and all that threatens is closing in from all sides.
Most of those times are not as dire as the Israelites crying out to the LORD from a perceived dead end, literally. But our minds spin, emotions run raw, the options seem exhausted, and we don’t know where to turn.
This is when He whispers, “Come talk to Me. What is troubling you?” And just the unburdening in that safe place settles our hearts. Soon enough, we begin to see He has been orchestrating His best all along.
Those “Red Sea moments” are all about us having eyes to see the LORD do what *only* He can do! His course of action will rarely be what we expect, but we will always stand amazed in grateful wonder as we watch His purposes unfold!
I pray these same thoughts echoed in today’s breakfast “psalm” will calm and quiet your heart:
