God's Unseen Footprints

Psalm 77:19, God's path through the Red Sea
I’m an experienced mover having moved almost 40 times in my 60 years of life. But that doesn’t mean our moves have always gone smoothly.

One time we reserved a truck but when we arrived to pick it up, they said it wasn’t available, nor was there another truck available in the whole city that day!

Our situation seemed impossible.

In the Bible, the Israelites also faced an impossible situation as they stood between the Red Sea and the angry Egyptian army. But Psalm 77:19 tells us that God loves an impossible challenge.

“Your path led through the sea, your way through the mighty waters, though your footprints were not seen.” 

God did something they couldn’t imagine—He parted the Red Sea.

In our "impossible" situation, God sent an unexpected visitor, a friend with an empty truck headed in the same direction we needed to move!

Are you facing an impossible situation? Pray until you see God’s ‘unseen’ path.

  1. Thank you for this.. I will try to remember this as someone who tends to panic when things don't go to plan!
    I know that God has always found me the way in the past, I need to give him more credit for that, and more faith that he will do so again.

  2. Perfect timing. =) We are in an "Isrealite" type situation. Our "big truck" moving day is on Friday, but the weather is predicting rain and snow on Wed. and Thurs. =( We have to do some of our moving for smaller things on those days, too. We are moving to the country and it seems there is always mud around anyway. We're praying for dry weather and dry ground! The weather and the natural elements listen to God, so I'm not too worried about the what the weather person says. =)

  3. Thank you for sharing. I do tend to panic so I need to stop putting a limit on what God can do when my faith wavers.
