I’ve missed blogging, both on this blog and on our Travel Adventure site. I usually say these posts are more for me – as a diary of where my life was going, where it went and where it needs to be (this site is more for where it needs to be). As I am aging, I see more and more the need to have these events documented somehow. I am so sad I never blogged about all of our motorcycle adventures (many were pre-blog days) nor do I have a good journal of our early years in Florida (2004-2011). I started a few journal entries to keep our daughter informed of those times – but until I actually began blogging, those memories are now about lost except on some digital and paper photos “somewhere.” Continue reading
“The Red Sea Rules”
The Same God Who Led You in Will Lead You Out
By Robert J. Morgan
This powerful little book contains 10 God-Given Strategies for Difficult Times, centered around Exodus 14. Each rule is centered on scriptures and testimonies.
This book was divinely inspired when the author (a pastor) was dealing with a problem. He was reduced to a bundle on nerves because it was someone he loved who was in trouble. He prayed for God’s help, then opened his Bible to the days reading, Exodus 14. God clearly used the Israelites “trouble” and then he began to see these 10 steps. (From the preface.)
Red Sea Rule #
1-Realize that God means for you to be where you are.
2-Be more concerned for God’s glory than for your relief.
3-Acknowledge your enemy, but keep your eyes on the Lord.
5-Stay calm and confident, give God time to work.
6-when unsure, just take the next logical step by faith.
7-Envision God’s enveloping presence.
8-Trust God to deliver in His own unique way.
9-View your current crisis as a faith builder for the future.
10-Don’t forget to praise Him!
Each chapter ends with a few thought provoking questions that allow you to step back and reflect on the readings and scriptures. Bill and I used this as our daily devotional for six weeks. Each rule has about 3 or 4 testimonies. We’re excited about how our Lord is strengthening us from this devotional!
