Your Creator loves you this much!
He will part and divide the sea for you! Yes He will!
Exodus 14: 21-22
Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the Lord swept the sea back by a strong east wind all that night and turned the seabed into dry land, and the waters were divided. The Israelites went into the middle of the sea on dry land, and the waters formed a wall to them on their right hand and on their left.
Of course this is the story of God saving the Israelites from Egyptian slavery by dividing the sea for their escape and to destroy the arm of Egypt. However, it does apply to you and me today in 2018. The Israelites are our ancestors! This amazing miracle is a image of God's love for our ancestors and us!
God asked me to really look at this story and especially the parting of the sea. He let me use my imagination to write how it may have felt to be one of the Israelites looking at walls of water while walking through the sea. I will share that story in a future study in this series He will Part the Sea for You.
For this week I want you to use our easy meditation activity along with that beautiful imagination of yours. God created you with that imagination. He purposefully included it in your makeup. Let's have fun and use this amazing skill.
MEDITATION ACTIVITY for the week:
(super easy girls!)
Meditate on these FOUR words only!
the waters were divided
Think about the sea being divided. Imagine the wall of water. How high were the walls? How did the wind hold them back? What did it sound like? Visualize how it looked to both the ones crossing on the sea and the Egyptians watching from land. If you want, write a short story about it. Describe all your senses if it had been you walking through the sea.
Lastly, jot those four words down on paper and place them where you will see them through the week! This solves the biggest challenge to meditation: remembering to do it. These reminders also put the Word of God in your environment or space (home, office, car...) That is powerful!
This message and lesson is from your Father God who loves you so much that He would part the sea for you! Why, He sent his only Son for you! Of course, He would do anything.
I adore you lovely busy women seeking God! Thanks for reading! I pray that your Helper the Holy Spirit will keep the Word fresh in your mind through your daily schedule!
