So imagine that you are in the middle of New York City on New Years eve, 1 minute before the ball is about to drop. Dick Clarke as best he can is getting ready to do the count down. Energy is bubbling up all around you. The noise ise is so intense that you can’t even here your own thoughts. You can’t control the way you move because you are trapped between thousands, and thousands of bodies. But in your head you think, I wonder how many people would hear me if I shouted out the command “MOVE”. How many would respond, how many would hear, how many times would I have to say it, how loud could I yell. This morning I was reading through Psalms 77, and was reminded that in my life I go through the similar struggles that this writer did. How often though during those struggles do I remind myself of the GREATNESS and POWER of God. Verse 16 says this…When the Red Sea saw You, how it feared! It trembled to its depths! 17 The clouds poured down their rain, the thunder rolled and crackled in the sky. Your lightning flashed. 18 There was thunder in the whirlwind; the lightning lit up the whole world! The earth trembled and shook. 19 Your road led by a pathway through the sea – a pathway no one knew was there! 20 You led your people along that road like a flock of sheep, with Moses and Aaron as their shepherds. Whoa….here you are yelling at that top of your lungs in the middle of Time Square, and no one is budging, but water runs, moves, separates at the mere image of God. It didn’t matter how loud the river was, it didn’t matter how huge that body of water was. It recognized its creator, and was obedient. Are we recognizing the POWER of our creator in the middle of our crazy circumstances? Are we obedient? Are you ready to walk through water….you might not get wet, but you wont know until you start walking….there might just be a path that you would have never seen.
