The Waymaker

Thought For The Week 179 By Val Warsop

The Bible is full of thrilling stories, isn’t it?  The Israelites amazing Exodus from Egypt is packed with drama.  After their spectacular exit from the country, buoyed with anticipation of the Promised Land, they made camp at Etham, on the edge of the desert.  At which point, Yahweh told them to turn back and camp near Pi Hahiroth.  It’s easy to imagine the astonishment and consternation this order would have created! But when they were camped by the sea, and the rear-guard sent warning that the Egyptian chariots could be heard in the distance, astonishment gave way to terror and fury. Poor Moses, it hadn’t been his idea in the first place!  But, of course, we know how Yahweh spectacularly saved the day. What a Mighty Being is our Father.

Forty years later, the children who had walked through the sea at Pi Hahiroth, were facing the turbulent waters of the River Jordan in full flood.  This river marked the boundary into the Promised Land, and the time had come for Israel to go in to possess it.  This time, however, they were not to wait in camp for a way to be made through the water, but to go forward in faith, trusting the Almighty.  They had to break camp and be ready to march early in the morning, following the priests who were carrying the ark of the covenant.  As these men stepped into the turbulent river, the water stopped flowing 20 miles upstream and began to pile up. [Joshua 3:15-17] Exhilarating! The same situation; the same result; a different approach.

Yahweh has our lives in His hand, whether He says turn back, move forward, walk through the problems, face the situation, or stand still, He knows exactly what He is doing.  He is a Way-maker!
