One of the greatest thrills I had during my recent visit to Israel was sailing on the Red Sea. I have never seen ocean water as blue and as crystal clear as that of the Red Sea. But what gave me the greatest thrill was I was actually near the site where God parted that body of water to allow the Israelites to cross over in safety from Egypt.
Despite the great signs and wonders God had showed the Israelites, they became afraid and angry at Moses when they realized that the Egyptians were pursuing them and the huge expanse of the Red Sea lay before them. They thought they had no means of escape. But God said to Moses, “Wherefore criest thou unto me? speak unto the children of Israel, that they go forward” (Exodus 14: 15).
In this New Year, what do you hear God saying to you? Are you doubtful, remembering your past failures, afraid of what the future holds. Or do you hear the Lord saying to you, “Go forward?” The infographic below contains some scripture verses which, I hope, will encourage you to go forward in this new year. Happy New Year!
