I'd love to have all the answers. To know TODAY the answers to my questions for tomorrow. However I am reminded of a beautiful truth as I lie awake here in the early morning hours....faith isn't knowing all the answers in advance.
It's about knowing the One who does.
It means trusting He will continue to lead me as He has done for the ancients past...DAY - BY - DAY. 💕
"Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed DAY BY DAY." 2 Chron 4:16
"Give us DAY BY DAY our daily bread." Luke 11:13
“Yet they seek Me DAY BY DAY and delight to know My ways..." Isaiah 58:2
"...And your strength shall be renewed DAY BY DAY like morning dew." Psalm 110:3
"Yet DAY BY DAY the Lord also pours out his steadfast love upon me, and through the night I sing his songs and pray to God who gives me life." Psalm 42:8
"...The pillar of cloud led them forward DAY BY DAY.." Neh. 9:19
I read a few moments ago that C. H. Mackintosh (19th century expositor) didn't believe the Red Sea divided all at once but that it opened progressively as the Israelites trusted God for each fresh step.
I don't know - but can you imagine the faith it would have required to keep walking? Whether all at once or step by step, their whole existence required dependence on the faithfulness of God to keep those waters parted. Perhaps He desires the same level of faith from us today. Correspondingly He will lead us as well, day by day, and step by step.
So here's to taking the next logical step by faith in decision making...and trusting God to part the sea.
