In Exodus 14, when Moses told the Children of Israel to step into the red sea, they could not see what was before them. Moses put his arm over the water as directed by God, and the Israelites trusted that as they took each step the sea would be parted further for them to take yet another step. They could not see the ground in which their next step would be placed, but they stepped forward anyway, and found each foot stood upon dry land. They stepped forward...in faith and obedience, and watched the sea become a wall of water on either side of them. And, because they followed the promise of God, they later saw the water come down upon the Egyptians and all their chariots and horsemen. The Egyptians could no longer cause harm or fear. They were annihilated.
That is where I am right now. I am stepping forward. Doing so because God told me to. I cannot see what will be beneath each step but I'm moving forward on the path God put me to back in April. I know that the promises of God wait for us if we follow Him through the wilderness. I know that my Egyptians will be dealt with in a way that only God can orchestrate.
There is change brewing. BIG CHANGE. For ourselves living in this household, and for others. For adoptive families and for waiting children. Change. Step forward. The way is being cleared before you, just out of your sight. Like the children of Israel, be obedient and you will find your feet placed safely upon dry land. You will cross the wilderness. It will not be easy. Follow His commands for you, and you will find His promises.
I expect to be coming into the wilderness any day now. I will keep my eyes on Him and His promises. I know that the riches waiting for me there are far greater than I can ever imagine.
