Todays meditation: I LIFTED HIM OUT OF THE WATER! Many years ago, when I was just a teenager, I almost drowned in the water. And in my distress I cried out to the Lord to push me up toward the surface of the water so I could swim the rest of the way once I saw the top. When you are in deep waters everything looks murky and black, it is difficult to see the light or even where you are oriented. It was like that for me; and it is like that for so many who are not close to Christ. They are disoriented, lost, they don’t know their way, they are in darkness and don’t know which way to swim to get out out of their predicament. Call upon the Lord in your distress and He will answer you! When I called on the Lord that day as I was trying to swim to shore and was crushed under the swirling surf the waters looked like this. I was pushed upward by a hand that pushed me toward the surface and the water went from murky to dark to clear in an instant and sun kissed. Faith in action leads to life & salvation.
Tonight’s meditation: I HAVE HEARD THEIR CRIES OF DISTRESS! God usually knows about our difficulties even before we do. Like the Israelites in Egypt; they had been calling out to God in their distress and He heard them. He also had a plan to save them and release them from their slavery while punishing Pharaoh for his hardness of heart. God has everything in His hands. His plan is for the Israelites to leave Egypt and go into the desert where they would be free to worship Him and free from their labors. Not only that, but He also made sure that they plundered the wealth of Egypt before they left! God is good. He is for us and will Provide for all of our needs. If God is for us, who can be against us? Let that sink in. Not even the gates of hell can stop Gods remnant people from achieving His plan. 🙏
