When the Obstacle Becomes a Blessing!
God is truly surprising and, even though He promises to always deliver us, it’s hard to know ahead of time how He’ll go about it!
The children of Israel experienced this when fleeing from Egypt and slavery. God had promised to lead them to a country of liberty, only there it was: a barrier rising up right before their eyes. And not the most insignificant of barriers either, as it was the sea itself ... a humanly insurmountable obstacle.
The Israelites were thus cornered between the sea that blocked them on one side and the Egyptians ready to recapture them on the other. (read the story in the Bible, Exodus 14:9-16)
But God intervened through the arm of Moses, and the sea divided in two, allowing the people of God to pass through. Then the sea closed again, submerging Pharaoh’s army that was blind enough to follow God’s people into the sea that He Himself had opened! The obstacle thus became a blessing for the Israelites. The sea that barred the way became the means by which God delivered them through drowning Pharaoh’s army!
Do not fear the barriers or obstacles in your life. God is not only capable of helping you overcome them, but these barriers can even become a blessing for you afterward! Isn’t God surprising?
Without a doubt, in the face of all of our obstacles, we can trust in Him. May God bless your day and make your barriers HIS blessings!
